After The End

25th August 2014

Like their albums before them, After The End was recorded and produced by the band, this time over a six-month period in the house they share in Tampa. A real achievement in showing what bands can achieve themselves, the only outside influence came when they enlisted mixing help from Gareth Jones - the man famed for his work with Tuxedomoon, Depeche Mode’s Berlin Trilogy of Construction Time Again, Some Great Reward, and Black Celebration, and more recently Interpol, These New Puritans and Grizzly Bear.

Speaking to the NME earlier this year, Carson Cox said “(Our last album) Totale Nite was the end of the book. This is a whole new one. It's like we can start a new band with basically the same name. We've already exploded our reality – now we're going to re-make ourselves as a pop band, but it'll still be a twisted reality.” He’s kept to his word with the album being made up of ten tracks spread across a mean 45 minutes.

Today, Pitchfork premiere the video for Merchandise's new single 'Enemy', taken from the band’s 4AD debut After The End.

Inspired by American greats Stan Brakhage, Kenneth Anger and William Eggleston, filmmaker Tim Saccenti (Depeche Mode, Flying Lotus, Animal Collective) said the goal was to transform “the thick southern tones and ripe textures of deep Florida into a dream-state visual backdrop for the song.”

Carson from the band writes "Horror! Disgust! These are the things that I want to Know...
