4AD signs Merchandise

By | Published on Wednesday 15 January 2014


Alt-rock band Merchandise, of Tampa, Florida, have signed a deal with 4AD, on the strict condition the label release the band’s new twelve-inch single, ‘Begging For Your Life/In The City Light’, which seems only fair.

Now a five-piece featuring new face Chris Horn on guitar, keys and saxophone, Team Merchandise are, as I write, making what’ll be their first LP on 4AD, following last year’s five-track ‘Totale Nite’ EP.

They say of the signing: “We’re happy to announce that we have begun a new partnership with 4AD. The endeavour is in its infancy, but has already proven to be fruitful. On the horizon lay many great things that we aim to accomplish with our new kindred partner”.

‘Begging For Your Life/In The City Light’ will be available on 24 Feb. Play the single here until then:
