The Thurston Moore Group will release their new album, Spirit Counsel on September 21 on Moore’s Daydream Library Series Record Label. The album will feature Jon “Wobbly” Leidecker who Moore says, “We all fell for Jon during an unforgettable moment on the platform of the train station in rural Denmark as we stood beside him with other passengers and witnessed in awe as he and his hand-held electronics conducted an extensive conversation with the local crows. Suddenly all these birds flew in and surrounded him on the train platform and began singing with him.”
Thurston Moore will tour on May 31 at EartH (Evolutionary Arts Hackney) in London, United Kingdom. He will also perform on Saturday, June 8 at La Maroniquerie in Paris, France.

Moore was ranked 34th in Rolling Stone’s 2004 edition of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” In May 2012, Spin published a staff-selected list of the top 100 rock guitarists, and ranked Moore and his Sonic Youth bandmate Lee Ranaldo together at number 1.
In 2012, Moore started a new band Chelsea Light Moving and then in 2017 released Rock n Roll Consciousness and Improvisations with Charles Hayward.
