Bob Mould will release his all-new studio album, Beauty & Ruin on June 3 in the U.S and June 9 for the rest of the world.
Prior to that, Bob will wrap up the intimate 25 Years of Workbook mini-tour with a March 6 return to The Late Show with David Letterman and two final sold out shows March 7 and 8 at New York's City Winery, both featuring Jason Narducy on bass and cellist Alison Chesley.
Described as "a compact epic," Beauty & Ruin packs a staggering lifetime's worth of emotion and experience into a 36-minute package sure to be hailed as a landmark addition to Bob's formidable body of work.
As with 2012's Silver Age, Beauty & Ruin finds Bob joined by his stalwart band of bassist Jason Narducy and drummer Jon Wurster, who will be backing Bob at this year's SXSW as he debuts Beauty & Ruin material at the Merge showcase at the Parish on March 13 and at the A.V. Club day party on March 14.
