Superchunk have announced their new album will be entitled, I Hate Music. The tenth studio album from the North Carolina four-piece will be released on 20th August via Merge Records.

The band have said in a statement on their website how 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."

It continues, "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. It defies its own title so completely and diligently that it never even seems like a fair fight: There's no pain this deep or yearning this severe without the type of love earned over a lifetime."
