Superchunk premiered their new video for “Digging For Something” at Videogum this week, and you can view it below. Directed by former Daily Show writer Scott Jacobson, the video features special guests John Darnielle
from the Mountain Goats
, comedian Ted Travelstead,
and The Love Language (described by Videogum as “a bunch
of dudes from“).


Meanwhile, the album from which the tune is culled, Majesty Shredding, is out this week. We’ve
already filled you in on that
, so let’s just add that the band appears next
Monday night on the Jimmy Fallon show. And we’ve got a full-page feature on
Superchunk in the new issue of BLURT, arriving at newsstands this very moment.


It’s a pretty fun article as it has drummer Jon Wurster and
guitarist Jim Wilbur reminiscing on assorted highs and lows they’ve experienced
with the band over the course of the past two decades. Among the former:
playing Lollapalooza and meeting Mike Watt. The latter: well…. there was that
time they played on the same bill with Sugar Ray, for starters….
