Superchunk have announced the release of their tenth studio album, I Hate Music. The follow-up to the veteran band’s 2010 LP Majesty Shredding, the new album will come out Aug. 20 on Merge. Despite being described as Majesty Shredding‘s “dark twin,” the band says the new record is “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: There’s no pain this deep or yearning this severe without the type of love earned over a lifetime. It’s dark in here, but if we conjure the right words and sounds, maybe we’ll find our way out.”
