The Breach

Album: Life and Times (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This break-up rocker is a track from Life and Times, the ninth solo album from former Hüsker Dü and Sugar frontman Bob Mould. The album was recorded at Mould's home studio in Washington DC, with only Mountain Goats drummer John Wurster backing him up.
  • Despite being in the music business since the late '70s, Mould still hears artistic growth on his material. He commented to Rolling Stone on this track: "Usually a song builds to a rage and never settles down. Here the rage keeps building and then you have a peaceful resolve. It was like, 'Wow, I've never done that before.'"
