8 LP BOX RELEASED ON DEMON
Legendary musician Bob Mould along with his friend, actor, comedian and avid Mould fan Fred Armisen, share a video in which they open boxes of the different vinyl volumes of Mould’s career retrospective boxset Distortion. Armisen penned the introduction to Mould’s massive 24-CD Distortion box which was released last fall by Demon. The vinyl volumes have been released periodically over the last year, with the fourth and final vinyl box Distortion: Live now scheduled to be released by Demon on August 6. The 8 LP set includes live recordings from Mould’s solo career as well as performances by his band, Sugar.

“I’m a longtime fan of Fred’s work, especially the Portlandia series,” Mould said. “Fred and I have made music together in the past – with my band, with Ian Rubbish, on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and at the occasional birthday party. So, it was a thrill for me to “unbox” the various configurations, geek out on the packaging, and share a handful of fun stories.”
Mould also announced a tour of solo electric dates in Europe beginning January 19, 2022, in Dublin, Ireland. In addition to the European dates, he is announcing openers for his US band tour with the band’s Kestrels, Moaning, Slow Caves, and Gentlemen Rogues.
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.
