Published Jan 10, 2013Tampa, FL post-punk group Merchandise broke through from their hardcore scene beginnings with last year's well-received Children of Desire album. Now, with a new drummer in tow courtesy of Shoxx/Pollution stick handler Elsner Nino, the group have announced a new EP and North American tour.
The five-song EP is called Totale Nite and will be available this spring via the Night People imprint. The tracklisting is available below, along with a stream of the new track "Anxiety's Door."
While you're scrolling down to check out the new track, you might notice an enormous amount of data. That's because Merchandise are also about to embark on a lengthy North American tour, with dates all over the continent supporting some of the hottest punk acts around.
Sadly, the trek only includes one Canadian stop, with Merchandise playing Vancouver's Media Club on March 29. Check out the full itinerary below.
