Iggy And The Stooges To Release New Album 'Ready To Die' On April 30
Iggy And The Stooges have announced that they will release their new album "Ready To Die" on April 30. "Ready To Die" is the band's first studio collection since 2007's "The Weirdness" and the first album of all-new material featuring Iggy Pop, guitarist James Williamson and drummer Scott Asheton since 1973's classic "Raw Power". Mike Watt fills in for the late Ron Asheton on bass. Explaining his decision to make another Iggy And The Stooges album in 2013, Iggy Pop said recently: "My motivation in making any record with the group at this point is no longer personal. It's just a pig-headed fu--ing thing I have that a real fu--ing group when they're an older group, they also make fu--ing records. They don't just go and twiddle around on stage to make a bunch of fu--ing money..." Tracks confirmed to appear include "Burn", "Job", "Sex & Money" and the title track "Ready To Die". The album was produced by guitarist Williamson at Fantasy Studios in San Francisco, though Iggy Pop recorded his vocals in Miami (via NME). As we reported earlier, the album was mixed by Ed Cherney, who revealed last month (January): "It's old-time Stooges. It's raw. They're great songs, but not necessarily big choruses. They're the Antichrist of anthems." Iggy And The Stooges will support the album by embarking on a "live assault". Tour dates are to be announced shortly.
