Superchunk continues reissue series, 'Foolish' coming in September

Over the last year, Superchunk have been remastering and reissuing their classic albums. So far they've knocked out No Pocky For Kitty (1991), On the Mouth (1993) and Here's Where the Strings Come In (1995), and now they're filling a gap in the series.

On September 13, Merge Records will release the band's classic 1994 album Foolish. The album will be packaged with new artwork, liner notes written by drummer John Wurster and some bonus materials that have yet to be announced (see update below).

Check out the always amusing video for "Driveway to Driveway" from Foolish below (note that the audio in the video is not the new remastered version).

Superchunk is set to play the City Plaza stage at the Hopscotch Music Festival in downtown Raleigh on Saturday, September 10 with The Flaming Lips and Dreamers of the Ghetto. Tickets for the festival are available HERE.

[UPDATE: The bonus material included with the Foolish reissue will include The Clambakes, Vol. 6: One in a Row, recorded live in Minneapolis in 1994, three songs from the rehearsals for Foolish, recorded prior to the album's recording and three acoustic b-sides, originally released on the Driveway To Driveway EP.]
