Superchunk is an American indie-rock band hailing from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Formed in 1989, the band currently consists of frontman Mac McCaughan, guitarist Jim Wilbur, bass-player Laura Ballance, and drummer Jon Wurster, and they've acquire fans across the world thanks to their energetic live shows, and their unique blend of alternative rock and punk.
Working with Matador and also releasing via their own self-founded independent label Merge Records, the band were prolific in the studios throughout the 90s, and put out many a record until 2001, when the band hit a dry patch - taking a well deserved break. Returning in 2010 with their ninth record, the band are still working hard today and their milestone tenth 'I Hate Music' came out in summer 2013.
In November 2017, Superchunk confirmed that their next album, 'What a Time to Be Alive', will hit shelves in February 2018 - and that they'll be supporting it with a tour of the US and Canada from February to the end of April. Since, they've also announced a European tour, including UK shows in Glasgow, Leeds and London during May!

There’s nothing quite like the slow death of a laptop. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, attempts one to four at summarising Superchunk’s new LP all went up in smoke, along with eight weekend hours. Still, they weren’t entirely wasted. In that time you can listen to ‘What a Time to Be Alive’ roughly 15 times, and that is a fine way to spend the best part of a day.
