The Best Day is due out Oct. 21.  His label boasts that the LP “is a staggeringly confident, expansive work, one that not only rivals much of Moore’s past work, but also suggests his relocation to England has inspired a creative rebirth of sorts.”

That being said, Matador points out, “We’re already dealing with one of the harder working, prolific characters in modern music, rock or otherwise.”

The Thurston Moore Band includes Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe, and Nøught guitarist Dames Sedwards.
