Tampa FL, post-punk band Merchandise have just announced that their new album titled 'After The End', will be released on August 25th via 4AD .
The 10- track album, was recorded and produced by the band, this time over a six-month period in the house they share in Tampa. A real achievement in showing what bands can achieve themselves, the only outside influence came when they enlisted mixing help from Gareth Jones - the man famed for his work with Tuxedomoon, Depeche Mode's Berlin Trilogy of Construction Time Again, Some Great Reward, and Black Celebration, and more recently Interpol, These New Puritans and Grizzly Bear.
According to a press release, the album serves as somewhat of a rebirth for the band, who have consciously decided to move away from the fuzzier rock of 2013's Totale Nite. Pre-order the album here.
