For Record Store Day 2014, Merchandise will feature on a 3-way split LP released by 540 Records, with close friends Destruction Unit and Milk Music. This will be a Record Store Day exclusive, limited to a one-time pressing of 2,000 copies.
The split features stunning artwork from ZZ Ramirez of The Ukiah Drag, as well as a zine by J.S. Aurelius of Destruction Unit / Ascetic House. Some of the first Merchandise recordings featuring new drummer Elsner Nino appear on this split, aside from the recently sold out 12" single on 4AD, their maiden release for the label.
