Breaking the fourth wall: Bob & Colin
Bob Mould

Bob Mould's new album Beauty & Ruin is out today and you can stream the whole thing (and buy it) over at Merge. Current single "I Don't Know You Anymore" just got a very enjoyable video, directed by Alicia J. Rose (of Miss Murgatroid) which has The Decemberists' Colin Meloy schooling Bob on Social Media Marketing (including his band's new app Morph, which promises to "change the way thinking people think about thinking...about ordering kale-infused donuts at 2 AM"). You can watch that -- there are a few other cameos too -- below.

Bob, who we knew was playing Denver and Toronto Riot Fests and other festivals, also just announced a late summer/early fall tour which includes three NYC shows: Bowery Ballroom on September 10 & 11 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 13. Tickets for the NYC shows are on sale Friday (6/6) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (6/4) at noon.

All dates are listed, with the "I Don't Know You Anymore" video, below...
