The Most Anticipated Albums of 2010 section in Under the Radar's Winter 2010 Issue includes a short article on Superchunk's new album. We've now posted the full Q&A of that interview with Mac McCaughan.

North Carolina's Superchunk, an indie rock trailblazer throughout the 1990s, hasn't released an album since 2001's Here's to Shutting Up, but the band has remained active over the last decade, playing sporadic local shows and touring infrequently. In 2009, frontman Mac McCaughan and bassist Laura Ballance celebrated the 20th anniversary of both the band and Merge Records, the record label they co-founded in Chapel Hill. With the recording of the Leaves in the Gutter EP in the spring of 2009, the seeds were planted for Superchunk's ninth album, which McCaughan expects to be released in 2010. McCaughan discussed the forthcoming album with Under the Radar in late December, shortly after returning from a brief tour of Japan with the band. Click here to read the full interview.
