Merchandise Announce Fall Tour with Lower, Share New Video
Published Jul 15, 2014Next month, pop-leaning post-punk act Merchandise will release their new album After the End. To coincide with its release, the group have just revealed a lengthy North American tour.
In addition to shows throughout the United States, the band will bring their new jams north for four stops in Canada. These include shows in Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, and will all include support from Copenhagen dark pop unit Lower.
Check out the full itinerary below, where you'll also find Merchandise's new video for "Enemy." The clip was directed by Tim Saccenti, who cites Stan Brakhage, Kenneth Anger and William Eggleston as influences.
In a press release, Saccenti says he was trying to translate "the thick Southern tones and ripe textures of deep Florida into a dream-state visual backdrop for the song."
After the End will arrive on August 26 via 4AD.
