Superchunk has released a new album called 'What A Time To Be Alive'

Decades after forming, Chapel Hill band Superchunk is sounding as engaged and vital as ever.  The new recording is called What A Time To Be Alive and features some vocal assistance from Stephin Merritt from Magnetic Fields, Katie Crutchfield from Waxahatchee and Skylar Gudasz.  But aside from that, the tempos and the roar of guitars are undiminished by time.

Singer and guitarist Mac McCaughan and guitarist Jim Wilbur came into WUNC's studios to talk about the new album.
