Hüsker Dü/Sugar frontman Bob Mould has signed to Merge for a new album, out this fall. It was recorded with his bandmates, Jon Wurster (Superchunk) and Jason Narducy (Telekinesis, ex-Verbow).
Mould recently performed Sugar’s 1992 record Copper Blue from start to finish at the Noise Pop Festival and has confirmed that he’ll do the same thing for a number of European dates this summer. He’ll also play Copper Blue at SXSW on March 17, and close out Merge’s showcase on March 16.
