Bob Mould's Sugar Remasters Copper Blue

Sugar have released a remastered version of their 1992 album Copper Blue on vinyl for the first time ever in the U.S. via Ryko on 180-gram vinyl.

Sugar front-man Bob Mould supervised every detail of the release, including the remastering and the all new artwork and design.

Copper Blue sold over 250,000 units upon its original release and received overwhelming industry and media praise. Rolling Stone christened it "thunderous"; Vogue dubbed it "smashing". NME would ultimately name it their 1992 Album of the Year.

Mould broke onto the rock scene in the late 1970s as front man of the famed hardcore band Hόsker Dό. Thus began a three-decade long career as lead singer, solo artist, DJ and, briefly, professional wrestling scriptwriter. However, Mould's greatest success came during his stint as lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for indie rock band Sugar. The band became known for their compelling juxtapositions of thick punk guitar undertones, exciting melodies and fascinatingly rhythmic tempos. Critics and audiences alike deemed them fresh and innovative. The work that arose from this creative partnership became arguably the best of his career and, to this day, has influenced chart-topping artists, including Death Cab for Cutie and Interpol. In 2006, the band Train performed a cover of "If I Can't Change Your Mind" from Copper Blue on their For Me, It's You album.

It is also accompanied by exclusive liner notes detailing the significance of Sugar's seminal album from musicians such as the abovementioned Death Cab for Cutie and Interpol, as well as fellow Sugar member David Barbe and producer Lou Giordano. Additionally, each vinyl is accompanied by a drop card for a free download of the entirely re-mastered digital version of Copper Blue.

The release comes just a week after the June 15 publishing of Bob Mould's new autobiography "See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody". The book offers readers an intimate look into the fast and hard life of an American rock legend. From his early years in rural New York, living with an alcoholic parent, his years as a successful rock star, his deeply personal struggles with addiction and his inquiries into self-discovery as a gay man
