Superchunk’s last record, 2010’s Majesty Shredding, broke a seven-year new release drought for the group. Fortunately, fans won’t have to wait that long again, as the band has announced a new LP. The excellently titled I Hate Music is out Aug. 20 on Merge Records and is available for pre-order now.
While the band hasn’t released any singles yet, fans can get a taste of a few songs from the record via a trailer made by frontman and label head Mac McCaughan. Watch below, get appropriately stoked, and then check out the group's fall tour dates immediately following.
