Thurston Moore releases new single “Cease Fire,” announces tour

Thurston Moore

No word on a new Thurston Moore album just yet, but the former Sonic Youth member updated his website with a new single called “Cease Fire” and several tour dates. “Cease Fire” is classic Thurston Moore with a lengthy noise jam in the middle that should please anyone who’s missing Sonic Youth. Thurston released the song with this statement:

Guns are designed to kill and we, as non-violent human beings, are against the killing of any person or animal. The song is also about the power of love, in all its freedom of choice. A power that no gun can extinguish as love will rule always. Melt down your guns and kiss your neighbor.

“Cease Fire” is up for a free download at his site and you can stream it below.

His upcoming tour dates include a Brooklyn show on May 20 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. No ticket link for that show yet but stay tuned. His band for the tour will be his Sonic Youth bandmate Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine’s Deb Googe, and James Sedwards. All dates are listed below.

Thurston’s last single was the Chelsea Manning benefit single “Chelsea’s Kiss” that he dropped a few months ago. Thurston and Iggy Pop are subject of the new documentary I’ve Nothing But My Name, which recently screened in New York. Thurston has a new “oral discography” coming out in March too.
