After a nearly 10 year absence, alt-rock stalwarts Superchunk returned in 2010 with a new album called Majesty Shredding that showed that they had lost none of their pep or chops in their time out. The band has today announced the follow up to that record, and their tenth overall, I Hate Music, which will come out on Merge on August 20th.

I Hate Music is said to be the “dark twin” to Majesty Shredding, possessing the same energey with some even more aggressive moments. The title “isn’t tongue-in-cheek, but it’s really more a question than a statement: When you’re 20, lazy co-workers and romantic missteps number among your biggest worries; two decades later, life’s bigger questions knock louder and louder, demanding answers.”

The press release goes on to say that “I Hate Music is an album about love more than anything else: love of life, love of living, love of people, and yeah, love of music.”
