UPDATE

While we continue to wait for the exciting inevitability of an Iggy Pop tour announcement, the rockstar has released some other info to keep us going: His new album’s title. Ready to Die, the Stooges’ followup to 2007′s The Weirdness and the first effort to feature guitarist James Williamson and drummer Scott Asheton since 1973′s Raw Power, is slated for an April release.

Original Post: Iggy Pop & The Stooges Tour

Seminal punk band Iggy & The Stooges will release a new album later this year, Consequence of Sound reports, giving fans of avant-garde antics and the raw power of ’70s-era rock yet another reason to celebrate. Ready to Die will mark the band’s first release in five years, and the followup to their triumphal reunion record (they were broken up for almost 30 years, from 1974-2003), 2007′s The Weirdness.

So, as it is the go-to PR move for any new effort (not to mention the main source of revenue for most musicians these days), we have to ask it: When will Iggy & The Stooges head out on tour?

Although it would be very helpful if album announcements came complete with a detailed tour itinerary attached to the press release (very, very helpful), as of now the only info we have pertains solely to the album. We know producer/guitarist James Williamson, who was featured on ’73′s Raw Power but not The Weirdness, is back. We know Ed Cherney, who mixed the upcoming release, says Ready to Die is short on “big choruses,” which logically makes its offerings “the anti-christ of anthems” (we wouldn’t expect anything less). And we know Iggy and co. are into topicality: The record’s two confirmed tracks are titled “I Got a Job But It Don’t Pay Shit” and “Gun.”

All of which has only served to heighten anticipation surrounding the album’s still TBA release and the group’s probable tour. We’ll have more info as the band releases it in the coming months, but while we all wait for news, go ahead and check out our other Iggy Pop features: discography, past setlist and videos included.
