Bob Mould's Distortion: Live, the fourth and final box set in Bob's career-spanning vinyl retrospective box set series, will be out August 6 and features live recordings from Mould’s solo career as well as performances by his band, Sugar. To promote it, and the whole Distortion series, Bob and his old friend Fred Armisen have fun new unboxing video.

"I’m a longtime fan of Fred’s work, especially the Portlandia series,” Mould said. “Fred and I have made music together in the past – with my band, with Ian Rubbish, on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and at the occasional birthday party. So, it was a thrill for me to 'unbox' the various configurations, geek out on the packaging, and share a handful of fun stories."

You can watch that below.

Bob will be on tour this fall: first with his band (bassist Jason Narducy and drummer Jon Wurster) and then on solo electric dates with Narducy opening. The full band shows include stops at NYC's Webster Hall on 9/17 (tickets) and L.A.'s Teragram Ballroom on 10/2 (tickets). All dates are listed below.

Pick up vinyl editions of Sugar's classic debut, Copper Blue/Beaster double LP set, and the Hüsker Dü Savage Young Dü box set in our shop.
