***BACK IN STOCK!!!  Received an 8.1 rating from Pitchfork. 
After the shocking, and for many, demoralizing result of the 2016 election, “I didn’t buy the silver lining some were promoting that ‘well, at least art and music will be great now!’,” says SUPERCHUNK co-founder and frontman MAC MCCAUGHAN. “Obviously, any sane person would gladly trade four to eight years of terrible music for not having our country dismantled to satisfy the whims of a vengeful child and his enablers.” That said, good music and art still have a lot to say, and the urgency of current events gave Mac, LAURA, JIM and JON, the momentum to make something new sooner than later. Enter What a Time to Be Alive, recorded and mixed by BEAU SORENSON. The songs on What a Time to Be Alive meet rage and anxiety head-on with the catharsis and exhilaration of loud punk fire and vulnerable pop energy. Like 2013’s I Hate Music, which focused on death, loss, and the role of music in an aging life, the new record brings spirit to the frontlines of pain—it’s as defiant as it is despairing, as much a call to arms as a throwing up of hands. The record features more guest backing vocalists than any previous Superchunk album, including SABRINA ELLIS (A GIANT DOG, SWEET SPIRIT), KATIE CRUTCHFIELD, (WAXAHATCHEE), STEPHIN MERRITT (MAGNETIC FIELDS), SKYLAR GUDASZ and DAVID BAZAN. CD in 4-panel digipaks. Indie Only LP version pressed on clear and pink swirled vinyl with an exclusive 12"x24" poster.
