Ready to Die is the first time Iggy Pop has worked with guitarist James Williamson and drummer Scott Asheton on a full album since their 1973 classic Raw Power. It's set for an April 30th release. Iggy Pop's 1970s collaboration with David Bowie in West Berlin is the subject of the forthcoming biopic Lust for Life.

The Stooges last played SXSW in 2007, which coincided with the The Weirdness, the band's first album since Raw Power.
