Superchunk will offer the flip side of their 2010 release Majesty Shredding on their newly announced I Hate Music. It’s due out on Aug.20th on Merge Records, and sees the band doing an album of darker music, contrary to the feel-good vibe of Majesty Shredding, I Hate Music will be it’s “dark twin,” according to Merge Records. A Superchunk tour will happen later this Summer and go into the Fall.
They went on to describe it as “There’s a dark undercurrent as well. That title isn’t tongue-in-cheek, but it’s really more a question than a statement: When you’re 20, lazy co-workers and romantic missteps number among your biggest worries; two decades later, life’s bigger questions knock louder and louder, demanding answers.”
