Chapel Hill natives Superchunk are set to return with an album called I Hate Music—a rebellious title, but one that’s probably more tongue-in-cheek than earnest. According to Merge Records, this is “an album about love more than anything else: love of life, love of living, love of people, and yeah, love of music. It defies its own title so completely and diligently that it never even seems like a fair fight.”
“How’s everything at the front of the house?” is the refrain on the punchy sing-along, which seems to imagine the rockers gearing themselves up before emerging on stage for one of their frenetic live shows. It’s a likely single to head off the sets on their upcoming North American tour in support of I Hate Music’s release on Aug. 20 (via Merge Records).
