Bob Mould has confirmed that he will make his debut appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight at11:30 p.m. ET on ABC. The full band performance of material from Bob’s critically acclaimed current album Beauty & Ruin (Merge) promises to be a harbinger of peaks to come on his upcoming tour (see below for a full list of dates).

In other news related to Bob’s upcoming run of dates, Live Nation and Yahoo will be live-streaming the September 5 kick-off of Bob and the band’s next run of dates in its entirety live from the Theatre of the Living Arts in Philadelphia. This Bob Mould event is one of 365 concerts to stream over a 12-month period on the Live Nation Channel on Yahoo Screen, and will go live at 10:10pm EST/7:10pm PST onSeptember 5 at https://screen.yahoo.com/live/event/bob-mould.

Beauty & Ruin was released June 3 on Merge Records, debuting in the top 40 of the U.S. album chart and generating some of the most enthusiastic praise of Bob’s career, including:

“ageless… unfettered ferocity and humble grace.” — AV CLUB

“Few are better at making smart, hooky rock. The title stands in complete contrast to the joy of blasting the song full volume, and getting the feeling that Mould knows himself better than ever.” – NPR MORNING EDITION

“Mould is on a roll… ranks up there with his catchiest…  joyously unconcerned with proving anything to anyone other than the fact that he can still craft hook after hook.” — PITCHFORK

“The former Sugar and Hüsker Dü frontman sounds fully invigorated here… Mould rips through 12 bristling guitar-pop tracks that, at their propulsive and tuneful best, recall the classic eras of his much-loved former bands.” – ROLLING STONE

“It doesn’t feel like a stretch to say Beauty & Ruin scrapes the same eight-miles-high stratosphere as his best work with Hüsker Dü, Sugar, and under his own name… vital music from a living legend – a master class in the sort of gleaming, guitar-powered alt-rock that Mould helped to invent.” – STEREOGUM

Bob and his longtime bandmates bassist Jason Narducy and drummer Jon Wurster will be returning to the road in support of Beauty & Ruin through the fall. The next series of North American dates is listed below.

THIRD MAN RECORDS PRESENTS

OLIVIA JEAN

BATHTUB LOVE KILLINGS

Bathtub Love Killings

Bathtub Love Killings

Third Man Records is proud to present and exciting new full length album from our favorite Third Man chanteuse… Olivia Jean!

Bathtub Love Killings is the debut solo LP from Olivia Jean, the multi-instrumentalist who cut her teeth in the Third Man stable backing folks as varied as Karen Elson, Wanda Jackson and Jack White in addition to fronting the much-loved Black Belles. Jean has accrued a lifetime of experience in a few short years, from highlight performances on The Colbert ReportConanLate Show With David Letterman and The Grand Old Opry stage to having one of her songs used as the theme for the television series Elvira’s Movie Macabre.

Produced by Jack White, Bathtub Love Killings showcases Jean as a songwriting force to be reckoned with. Playing damn-near every instrument she could get her hands on, the result is a well-rounded, catchy record that’s chock-a-block full of ear worm moments.

Bathtub Love Killings will be available everywhere on LP, CD and digital on October 14th. A limited edition lavender colored vinyl version will also be available via Third Man Records.

For more about Olivia Jean and Bathtub Love Killings check out this humdinger of a video, listen to this song sampler, and make sure you follow Olivia on Tumblr & Instagram!

PAUL McCARTNEY UNVEILS NEVER BEFORE RELEASED BEATLES PHOTOS

FAREWELL TO CANDLESTICK: THE FINAL CONCERT MEETS THE BEATLES’ 1966 FINAL SHOW

Paul McCartney took the crowd of 50,000 at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on a magical mystery tour back through time at tonight’s historic Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert:

During a rarely performed rendition of Little Richard’s “Long Tall Sally” — the last song to be performed in its entirety at The Beatles’ August 29, 1966 final concert at the same venue — the crowd was transported back to that very same night courtesy of a collection of previously unreleased photographs by the late Jim Marshall.

The only photographer to be granted unfettered access to photograph The Beatles’ last ever concert, Marshall’s images were granted this exclusive usage by Paul for his bittersweet goodbye to this iconic ballpark. The images will next be viewable by the general public with the October 14 release of a new book on Marshall’s work The Haight: Love, Rock and Revolution (Insight Editions). The Haight… is currently available for pre-order at Amazon.com.

Jim Marshall is world-renowned as the pioneer of rock-and-roll photography. A principal photographer at Woodstock, and the only photographer allowed backstage at The Beatles’ last concert, he immortalized artists such as the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane before they became household names. His tools of the trade were a manual Leica camera and unlimited access to the artists. This allowed Marshall to capture some of the most iconic images in music history, and In 2014 Marshall became the first photographer ever to receive the GRAMMY Trustees Award for his body of work. Marshall passed away in 2010, and gave his iconic and inspired archive to his long-time assistant and friend Amelia Davis, who keeps Marshall’s legacy alive and thriving.

Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert is the latest sold out stop on Paul McCartney’s current Out There tour. As always, the marathon Out There sets feature music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his entire career – as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity; in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived; the very soundtrack of so many of our lives. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, and even a live broadcast into Space. The tour resumes September 28 at Petco Park in San Diego.

SPOON

THEY WANT MY SOUL DEBUTS AT #4

They Want My Soul

They Want My Soul

“Their songs deliver a pure rush of musical elation… the power of familiar songs without actually sounding that much like other rock music at all.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE

“They Want My Soul is Spoon’s strongest album yet, something rarely (if ever) said about a band’s eighth record.” — THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

Riding a tidal wave of rave reviews, killer TV appearances, and Triple A Top 10 single “Do You” (just added into rotation at mtvU and MTV2), Spoon’s eighth – and by all accounts, best – studio albumThey Want My Soul (Loma Vista/Concord) has entered the U.S. album chart at #4, selling nearly 40,000 copies in the week since its August 5 release.

They Want My Soul‘s #4 debuts ties the band’s career high, established by its previous albumTransference (Merge) which debuted in the same position in 2010.

They Want My Soul also claims the #1 spot at independent retail by a large margin, with nearly 20% of the record’s first week tally coming from Spoon’s groundbreaking Vinyl Gratification initiative. Additionally, They Want My Soul landed at #3 on the digital chart. Purchase They Want My Soul on Amazon and iTunes.

Spoon has put forth the official video for “Do You,” They Want My Soul‘s lead single. View the video now on VEVO.

Spoon recently kicked off its tour supporting the new album with a sold out show on the Fairbanks Lawn of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, as well as show-stealing performances at festivals including Governors Ball, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands, all of which back up ROLLING STONE’s warning that ”you’d be a fool to miss Spoon in concert if you get the chance”.

“scorches with Stonesian bravado and a fist-pump-worthy chorus” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY The Must List

“If ‘Gimme Something Good’ – the lead single, is any indication, the album will contain more of the blues-tinged, post–college rock that earned him fans in the first place.” — ROLLING STONE

“This thing is a total knockout. Give it a listen.” — STEREOGUM

“a gritty guitar-driven jam perfect for cranking on the stereo while summertime cruising up Main Street.” — TIME

Continuing the return to the stage that has already included a triumphant headline appearance at the Newport Folk Festival and last week’s sold out shows in Boulder and Aspen, Ryan and band have added a new leg of November dates to their current tour. The new dates are on sale to the publicFriday, August 15 at 10am local time with artist pre-sales opening Thursday, August 14 at 10am local time (with the exception of Cleveland, which on sale 11am local time).
