Legendary alternative rock figure Bob Mould has announced a new UK tour for October, including a date at Birmingham o2 Academy on Friday October 7th.
Mould, who released his critically-acclaimed solo album Patch the Sky earlier this year, is returning to UK shores after a successful sojourn here in February. The singer’s live band includes Split Single star Jason Narducy on bass and Jon Wurster (Superchunk, The Mountain Goats) on drums, and the trio are renowned for their pummelling, hi-octane live shows, which give fellow stalwarts Dinosaur Jr. a run for their decibels.
Mould has released twelve solo albums to date, as well as having notable stints as the frontman for highly influential trios Husker Du and Sugar.
Full dates are as follows:
07 – Birmingham 02 Academy 2
08 – Bristol SWX
10 – London Garage
11 – Sheffield Leadmill
12 – London Brooklyn Bowl
Tickets are available now, via Ticketmaster.
