Bob Mould's "Silver Age" out now + watch the Letterman performance!

Bob Mould's

Bob Mould's Merge debut Silver Age is in stores on CD, LP, and digital now.

Watch Bob Mould and his band on The Late Show with David Letterman now!

Bob will perform "The Descent" tonight on The Late Show With David Letterman, backed by drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk, The Mountain Goats) and Jason Narducy (Split Single, Verbow), both of whom recorded Silver Age with Bob and accompany him live on all current tour dates.

In an interview with RollingStone.com, Bob said of Silver Age, "It's a really simple, natural reactionary record after the three-year process of writing the autobiography, which is all about editing and all about the wordy stuff of writing a book. So it was nice to throw down a simple pop record."

The full-band fall tour supporting Silver Age will be an elaborate affair: the classic Sugar album Copper Blue will be played front to back with an additional set mixing the new Silver Age material with Hüsker Dü, Sugar, and Mould solo classics will complete the evening.
