Thurston Moore announces new album ‘The Best Day’, shares title track

Thurston Moore has announced that he’ll be releasing a new album, The Best Day, on Matador Records on 20th Oct. He’ll be backed on the album by the band whose first gig we reported back in June during our field day coverage; so it includes members of Nought, My Bloody Valentine and SY’s drummer, Steve Shelley. Full details and a taster track below. 

The Best Day, Thurston Moore’s first solo record since 2010’s Demolished Thoughts, will be released on October 20th, 2014 on Matador Records. The album, we’re told, “…radiates with both his signature thrashing electric guitars as well as blissful 12-string acoustic ballads.”

The Thurston Moore Band will be playing dates in the UK, Europe and North America, including Riot Fest in Chicago and Toronto as well as a West coast run with Sebadoh. See all tour dates below.

During his Field Day review Keith Goldhanger said:

“We get tunes based around one note that changes in tempo and frequency, chugging along with different bursts of intensity and we get a set of tunes that also sounds so laid back and glorious that we walk away humming Sonic Youth’s “Schizophrenia” wishing these new tunes to our ears were more familiar. We get the coolest band in the field that not everyone here is actually aware of yet.”

Pre-order The Best Day on iTunesAmazon, and Matador (USA).

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
