Perhaps the best thing to happen in our lives this year is that our favorite Florida post-punk quartet Merchandise has decided to reinvent themselves as a pop band via this amazing nouveau-Echo and the Bunnymen route on a new record called After the End, their first for 4AD. Here's another new song from that LP, "Enemy," which comes with a trippy video directed by Tim Saccenti that sometimes feels like a lost scene from True Detective, except with more epaulets. Most importantly, though, it's a fantastic song, figuring Carson Cox's singular vocals over Dave Vassalotti's inimitable guitar wails. The guys will also embark on an epic tour which you are going to want to catch, trust me, with a slew of fantastic openers (White Lung, Lower, Spray Paint, Institute, etc). Check out the video and the dates below - After the End is out August 26th, just in time for you to blast it on your memorial day road trip.
