Bob Mould, who released Sunshine Rock earlier this year (Merge), has announced several upcoming electric performances, including a stop at Riot Fest.


In addition to the new dates, Mould has also shared a cover of "I Don't Mind," originally by the Buzzcocks.

"Early in my sophomore year, two concerts had a major impact on me. The first was at the Longhorn, with Gang of Four opening for the Buzzcocks. I was a huge fan of the Buzzcocks' approach to pop songwriting and also appreciated the slashing guitar of Gang of Four. I was front and center for the entire Buzzcocks set, studying singer-guitarist Pete Shelley, watching his every motion. Legend has it that the entire band was tripping on LSD that evening - I don't know, but many times during the set, Pete did lean down, off-mic, and shout the chord changes at me. It left a deep impression, and I became an even more intent student of their work," Mould says.

Mould also produced the new Titus Andronicus album coming out on June 21. Check out the Buzzcocks cover below:
