Merge Reissuing Superchunk's "Foolish" In September

It's only Wednesday and it's already been a great week for reissues! Hot on the heels of yesterday's announcement that Jagjaguwar will be reissuing the first three Dinosaur Jr. albums in October, the good people of Merge Records have announced that THEY'LL be reissuing Superchunk's 1994 classic Foolish. This whole year has felt like one big reissues arms race, to be honest, but I'm pretty cool with that.

The reissued Foolish will feature new album art, special bonus material, and liner notes by drummer Jon Wurster - which, if they're anything like his hilarious Twitter feed, will be worth the price of admission alone. This marks the fourth Superchunk reissue in the past year, as Merge has re-released No Pocky for Kitty, On The Mouth, and Here's Where The Strings Come In separately and as a specially priced bundle.

Check out the new video for "Learned To Surf" off of their latest release Majesty Shredding below, and read our review of their recent (ridiculously awesome) show with OFF!
