NEWS: Bob Mould announces Solo Electric tour this autumn

Legendary musician Bob Mould announces a fresh run of autumn UK/EU Solo Electric tour dates following his epic solo UK and Irish tour in the summer of 2022. Beginning in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, on 13th November, Mould’s live shows on this run 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 2020’s explosive album Blue Hearts which Rolling Stone said, “feels like a lost Hüsker Dü album with Mould howling invective over his buzzsawing guitar.”

 The UK dates commence on 20th  November at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds and culminate in a Friday night London show at The Garage on Nov 24th.

Last year, Mould released The Ocean, a new EP featuring three solo acoustic live performances, via Merge. Originally recorded for NPR’s World Café at Mould’s Granary Music home studio in San Francisco, CA, The Ocean collects stripped back versions of ‘The Ocean‘ and ‘Forecast of Rain’, both first found on Blue Hearts, as well as a striking rendition of the Hüsker Dü classic, ‘Divide and Conquer’ (from Flip Your Wig).

Watch a new solo live performance of ‘Forecast of Rain’, filmed in October ’21 at the Stoughton Opera House during the US leg of his Solo Electric: Distortion & Blue Hearts! Tour, here:

Blue Hearts, was released in September 2020 – the rawest and most confrontational work of his four-decade solo career. It’s a raging fourteen-track collection described by its creator as “the catchiest batch of protest songs I’ve ever written in one sitting.” Produced by Mould at Chicago’s famed Electrical Audio with long-time collaborator Beau Sorenson engineering, the album – which once again features backing from the crack rhythm section of drummer Jon Wurster and bassist Jason Narducy – nods to the veteran singer-songwriter’s groundbreaking past while remaining firmly planted in the issues of the day.

UK/ EU tour dates are as follows:


13th | Sint-Niklaas, BE – De Casino
14th | Oostende, BE – De Grote Post
16th | Madrid, ES – Teatro Lara
18th | Granada, ES – Lemon Rock
