The tireless power trio that is the Bob Mould band added several new engagements to its fall tour in support of Mould’s critically acclaimed Patch The Sky (Merge)—recently named one of the Top 50 Albums of 2016 so far by Rolling Stone. Adding to an itinerary including numerous headline shows as well as stops at Riot Fest in Chicago and a first ever appearance at the Hollywood Bowl, new headline dates have now been confirmed in November in Dallas, Atlanta, Athens, Nashville and Carrboro.

Upon the March release of Patch The Sky, Bob and longtime bandmates Jason Narducy and Jon Wurster hit the road for a string of the powerhouse shows for which they’ve become notorious. Critical praise has consistently reflected the peerless Bob mould live experience:

“The guitarist spun his bearish frame on one foot, as if being knocked around by the hurricane force of his solos. The notes poured out in thick, hyperspeed flurries. His attack conjured a 10-car pileup of tones and overtones, an orchestra of reverberation. There were two speeds –- fast and fastest -– as the bespectacled 55-year-old blended the blast-furnace intensity of hardcore with classic pop hooks.” – CHICAGO TRIBUNE 

“There wasn’t an acoustic guitar within a million miles of First Ave that night. The headliners tore through 30-some-odd years of Mould’s catalog with fierce, amplified resolve.” – MINNEAPOLIS CITY PAGES
“Watching Narducy and Wurster work the stage is certainly a sight to behold in its own right. Narducy’s bass playing coupled with the ferocious percussive assault on the drums provided by Wurster keep time for the whole Mould stage show with the spot-on perfect sound and big time rock show fury one would expect in a room like the Paradise with a seasoned vet like Mould at the helm.”– VANYALAND
“Mould had his amp cranked up loud and ripped more than a few sick leads when he wasn’t on the mic. Jason Narducy dished his basslines as he tossed himself about the stage. Jon Wurster pounded away on his drum set keeping a fast pace for most of the night.“- LA RECORD
