With all the Superchunk posts lately, we let their hilarious new music video for "Digging For Something" slip through the cracks, but here it is. The clip, like the band's many previous videos, pokes fun at themselves. The premise is that Superchunk is going on a reunion tour but Mac is the only original member on the tour and The Love Language join him as the reunited band.
The video is fantastic. You get to see Mac decked out like a hipster, John as a dentist with John Darnielle as his assistant, Laura selling crafts and Jim as a monk. You NEED to watch it and you can below.
Also, in other big Superchunk news, the band's new album Majesty Shredding debuted at number 85 on the Billboard 200. It's the first time the band have made it to the 200, though 1996's Here's Where the Strings Come In did make it to number 50 on the Top Independent Albums chart. So kudos to Superchunk.
