The hullabaloo over Merchandise has finally come to an end with news of the band signing to 4AD. According to a press release, the group recently added multi-instrumentalist Chris Horn to their lineup and are currently working on their debut LP for the label back home in Tampa. In the meantime, expect a one-sided clear vinyl pressing of “Begging For Your Life / In the City Light” on February 25th, complete with an etching on the flip. The release, which was originally available as a split tour cassette with Chelsea Light Moving, is now available for pre-order.
