Bob Mould has been reissuing his entire solo catalog in box sets: in October he released the Distortion: 1989 - 1995 vinyl box, and now he's announced its sequel, Distortion: 1996-2007 which will be out January 22 via Demon.

“It’s called Distortion because it describes the music and it fits the world we live in,” says Mould of the sets. “In this new age, everybody shares their life in real time. But I’m not done yet. If I didn't have a constantly active career, this anthology might feel like the proverbial dirt landing on top of my coffin — though somehow I seem to be able to crawl my way out of the dirt every time!”

The new set includes studio albums Bob Mould (1996), The Last Dog and Pony Show (1998), Modulate (2002), and Body of Song (2005), plus his electronic project LoudBomb's 2002 album, Long Playing Grooves, as well as his 2006 self-titled album with BLOWOFF, his electronic duo with Richard Morell. It's the first time Modulate and the LoudBomb and BLOWOFF albums will have been released on vinyl. The box set also includes Distortion Plus: 1996-2007 which features 12 b-sides, demos and other rarities, including a demo of "Dog on Fire" (aka The Daily Show theme).

Pre-orders are available and you can watch a trailer for Distortion: 1996-2007, and the video for "Sound on Sound" from Modulate, below.

For CD fans, there's the 24-CD Distortion: 1989 - 2019 box set that's out now. There are still two more Bob Mould vinyl box sets to come (collecting 2008 - 2019), and both will be out in 2021.
