Bob Mould has a brand new full-length slated for Sept 25th, titled Blue Hearts. Once again, Bob is working with Superchunk's rhythm section Jon Wurster & Jason Narducyin power trio mode, producing it himself w/ engineering help from Beau Sorensen (who has worked on all of Bob's Merge albums). 

One big difference between this one & his last are the themes of the record. It's almost the complete opposite of
Sunshine Rock in that regard. While Sunshine Rock was mostly about love & optimism about where Bob was in his life, Blue Hearts is about the pain & drastic changes he (and all of us) have experienced in the last 12 months (and how they've personally triggered the memories of Bob's experiences as a closeted gay man in during the peak of the AIDS crisis circa 1983).
