Merchandise frontman Carson Cox has said that the group have become "a different band".

Speaking to The Guardian, Cox commented on how the band has changed from when they started out, touring as a duo, to now playing as a full band with a saxophone. He said: "I hope people aren't going to be surprised when we turn around and we're a different band, because that's pretty normal to us."

Cox also said he thought modern culture is stuck in the 'ice age', saying: "It's so easy to express yourself these days, we should be living through this insane artistic renaissance, but it's just not happening. We're in this cultural ice age, just miles and miles of YouTube videos."

Merchandise start their first UK headline tour tomorrow. After kicking off in London on August 17, Merchandise will play shows in St. Albans, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, Bedford, Cardiff, Bristol, Leeds, Sheffield and Oxford before ending in Brighton on September 6.
