Merchandise are expected to release their full-length effort at some point in 2014. Speaking about their new album, titled ‘After The End’, and it’s progress, frontman Carson Cox recently told NME: “We’re going to remake ourselves as a pop band. We don’t have to put any long songs on the album so now we can just do a formal pop record. I’m talking about pop, rock and R&B. I feel like it’s going to be moody and sentimental.”
