Superchunk – Endless Summer [PEAK Edition COLOR VINYL] – New 7"
A brand new 7-inch of the upcoming album's first single, "Endless Summer", which features the guest harmonies of Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake & Raymond McGinley. The limited edition lime green variant is exclusive to indie stores (ltd to 777 copies). The 7-inch contains a cover of The Glands’ “When I Laugh” (feat. William Tyler on guitar) as the B-side.
“Endless Summer” was written on New Year’s Day 2020 which was unseasonably warm here in North Carolina. Of course, by the time we recorded it, “endless summer” had other meanings… The 7” sleeve features Roe Ethridge’s beautiful photos of broken beach umbrellas which capture the vibe of the song perfectly.
Formed in 1989 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Superchunk is Mac McCaughan (guitar, vocals), Jim Wilbur (guitar, backing vocals), Jon Wurster (drums, backing vocals), and Laura Ballance (bass, backing vocals). Since releasing their first 7-inch in 1989, Superchunk has run the gamut of milestone albums: early punk rock stompers, polished mid-career masterpieces, and lush, adventurous curveballs.
