Superchunk Release Album Details, Schedule First TV Appearance Since Clinton Administration

     

    Chapel Hill alt-rock heroes Superchunk are returning with Majesty Shredding, their first full album since 2001’s Here’s To Shutting Up. Details are sketchy at this point, but the album will be produced by Scott Solter and feature some backing vocals by the Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle. To celebrate the release of Majesty Shredding, the band scheduled their first television appearance since 1994, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. While Superchunk is probably excited about hitting the airwaves for the first time in over a decade, how stoked must Fallon be to hear that he’ll have a show at least until September?
