You can catch a chunk of the new Superchunk album Majesty Shredding on September 14th, when it sees its U.S. release. It's the first time the band has approached their music with the freshness and readiness of their early days ... in other words, don't overthink and over-collaborate, just roll the thing out in a more immediate response kind of vibe.
"Superchunk approached Majesty Shredding the same way they approached their early records: McCaughan provided skeletal demos to his bandmates, who in turn fleshed out the songs during a brief period of rehearsal and recording," reads the announcement from Merge Records. Dig it.
They brought in Scott Solter to produce the album (The Mountain Goats, John Vanderslice, St. Vincent) and went to work.
You can catch their performance at last years Merge XX Festival above and then see them live at any of the dates below.
