Legendary musician Bob Mould announces the continuation of his “Distortion and Blue Hearts” tour starting August 26, 2023 in Milwaukee WI. At select festivals, including a special Grandstand performance at the legendary Minnesota State Fair on September 2, 2023, Bob will be joined by Jason Narducy on bass and drummer Jon Wurster. The balance of Fall 2023 dates will feature Bob in Solo Electric setting.
Mould’s live shows will span his entire 40+ year career, including songs from the Distortion collection and from his landmark band Hüsker Dü, as well as songs from last year’s explosive and critically acclaimed album Blue Hearts — about which Rolling Stone’s 4 out of 5 star review raved, “feels like a lost Hüsker Dü album with Mould howling invective over his buzzsawing guitar.”
In late 2021, Demon Music Group concluded their year-long Bob Mould retrospective campaign with the fourth vinyl box, Distortion: Live. The 8 LP set includes live recordings from Mould’s solo career and his band Sugar.
This box follows October 2020’s 8 LP Distortion: 1989-1995 vinyl set, which took in Mould’s early solo outings as well as his records with the much-beloved Sugar, January 2021’s 9 LP Distortion: 1996-2007 box set continuing through the next steps in Mould’s solo career and his outings as LoudBomb and Blowoff, April 2021’s 7 LP Distortion 2008-2019 covering District Line to Sunshine Rock, and the 24 CD Distortion: 1989-2019 box, which covers the entirety of his post-Hüsker Dü output.
All albums in the Distortion box sets were mastered by Jeff Lipton and Maria Rice at Peerless Mastering in Boston, presented with brand new artwork designed by illustrator Simon Marchner, and pressed on 140g clear vinyl with unique splatter effects.
