It’s been almost 25 years since New Wave/Post Punk legends the Cars spent some time in the studio. (And we’ve got the jacket to prove it — see for that Ric Ocasek photo shoot.) The rock vets reunited in the winter of 2010 to record Move like This (released May 10 by Hear Music), their first without singer Ben Orr, who passed away from cancer in 2000. The remaining original four members hit the road for an 11-date tour to teach a new generation of kids a thing or two about rock and roll. Here’s hoping they’ve still got it.
