Bob Mould’s 2012 album Silver Age was inspired and informed by the acclaimed singer-songwriter and Sugar/Hüsker Dü founder’s prior shows opening for Foo Fighters as well as his shows commemorating the 20th anniversary of Sugar’s 1992 debut Copper Blue in which he performs that album in its entirety. Silver Age presents ten new Mould compositions in the punishingly loud, melodically sparkling pop/rock vein of the Sugar catalogue.
Featuring Bob’s live band of drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk) and bassist Jason Narducy (Split Single, Verbow), Silver Age ranks among the best work of any phase of Bob Mould’s expansive career. With tracks like opener “Star Machine,” the cathartic title track, “The Descent,” the reflective “Round the City Square,” the celebratory “Keep Believing,” and the somber simmer of closer “First Time Joy,” Silver Age is rife with future classics set to take their rightful places in Bob’s live set list alongside staples from Sugar, Hüsker Dü, and his earlier solo work.
Album includes printed lyric sleeve and a digital download.
