Superchunk Working On New Album, ‘Majesty Shredding,’ For Fall Release

    Here’s some news you can use: Indie-rock O.G.’s Superchunk are currently n the studio working on their ninth studio album, Majesty Shredding, and hope to have the album out by the end of the year. It’s been quite a while since Superchunk got busy in the studio-nine years in fact, since their 2001 album, Here’s to Shutting Up. But the band members have stayed busy. After all, Laura Ballance and Mac McCaughan still run Merge, Jim Wilbur plays in Portastatic, and Jon Wurster has been playing with the Mountain Goats and others. [Stereogum
