Merchandise Tease New Album with 'Flower of Sex' Single, Tour Dates
Published Jun 08, 2016Floridian art punks Merchandise have revealed that they'll have some new wares for the faithful sometime in the near future. Though details on an upcoming album release are slim at present, the band have unveiled a new single along with some North American tour dates.
The band revealed their travel plans today (June 8), along with a new single called "Flower of Sex." The cut is their first preview from their forthcoming follow-up to 2014's After the End. A timeline has yet to be established for when the record will hit stores, but it will be issued, like that last LP, through the venerable 4AD imprint.
You can check out the flora-filled, blood-dripping video for the reverb-soaked, baritone-sung single down below.
