Superchunk share new single “Break the Glass” (w/ Corrosion of Conformity cover)

Source: Brooklyn Vegan

“‘Break the Glass’ is a song about realizing you are in an emergency situation and trying to not lose your shit so you can respond to the ongoing disaster in a productive way. Trying to figure out why so many people around you are acting like nothing is wrong and wondering if maybe you’re the one that’s crazy…but you know you’re not.” – Mac McCaughan
