As we told you last month, local indie icons Superchunk are gearing up for the release of a new album on August 20 titled I Hate Music and now they've released the first new song from the album.
Check out the tenth track from the album titled "FOH" below. It's Superchunk at its best with high energy, big guitars and catchy hooks.
Since we originally told you about the album and the subsequent tour, bassist Laura Ballance announced that she will not be joining the band on tour due to worsening issues with hyperacusis (hearing damage). She is still in the band and will continue to record with them. Bassist Jason Narducy will join the band on their upcoming tour. You may have seen him in recent years playing with Bob Mould and Telekinesis.
The band's big hometown release show will be at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro on Saturday, August 24. The Parting Gifts will open. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketfly for $15.
