Superchunk has announced that their new album, I Hate Musicwill be released on August 20th.  The announcement came via an album trailer, which can be seen below.

The video contains clips of (presumably) songs from the album, along with what looks like a “making of” for a portion of the cover art. I Hate Music will be the band’s first album since 2010’s Majesty Shredding.

The band will also be heading out on tour to promote their new album, beginning in June with most of the dates in August.
