Iggy and the Stooges have released "Burn," the first single from their upcoming record, Ready to Die – a grinding, thumping punk cut that finds Iggy Pop delivering a hypnotic bellow over wire-cutter guitar riffs.
Out April 30th on Fat Possum, Ready to Die is being pegged as the band's follow-up to 1973's seminal Raw Power (though the Stooges released The Weirdness in 2007). The album will feature original members Pop, guitarist James Williamson and drummer Scott Asheton, with Mike Watt taking over bass for Ron Asheton, who passed away in 2009.
The band is set to preview a handful of Ready to Die cuts at the House of Vans Showcase at Mohawk during SXSW on March 13th, after which they'll head overseas for a handful of shows before returning stateside later in the summer.
