Merchandise is a band fighting against the easy categorization reserved for abbreviated biographies. The project is equal parts punk misanthropy, maudlin balladeering, fine art, low humor, classical study, psychedelic spacecasing, mad science and pop genius.
Formed as a trio in Tampa, Florida in 2008, the band has undergone ceaseless revision and reinvention. After putting out numerous records and tapes on independent punk labels and touring the underground, the band truly hit its stride with the release of their second LP Children of Desire in April 2012. In addition to a very warm reception from fans, the record received praise from the likes of Pitchfork, NME, Spin, and various other critics and journals.
2013 saw the band releasing Totale Nite on Iowa City’s Night People label and touring extensively throughout America and Europe.
Merchandise's first album for 4AD, After The End, was released on 25th August 2014. In 2015 they released 'Red Sun' b/w 'Echo', a collaborative 7 with Dum Dum Girls, that was released through Sub Pop.
