By ; June 6, 2012 at 2:04 PM 

Hüsker Dü/Sugar frontman and current solo artist Bob Mould has announced a new album to be released September 4th on Merge. Entitled Silver Age, it’s being presented as a return to the more melodic, rocking material that made Sugar famous, and was recorded with drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk/The Mountain Goats) and bassist Jason Narducy (Verbow). Above is the album art.

In addition, Merge will be reissuing most of Sugar’s catalog on July 24th, and Mould is going on tour to support the new release and reissues.
