Superchunk Shares Explosive New Single "What A Time To Be Alive," Details On New Album

It had to happen. Superchunk announced the band will be releasing its next album, What A Time To Be Alive (Merge Records), February 16, 2018. According to guitarist Mac, “The album is about a lot of things of course but mainly dealing with anxiety and worse in the face of incipient authoritarianism. (It’s a record) about a pretty dire and depressing situation but hopefully not a record that is dire and depressing to listen to.” Watch the lyric video for the title track now.

The band will be heading on tour in support of the new album.
