UK post-hardcorers Merrick’s Tusk reveal their greatly anticipated debut album, Between The Earth And The Trees, on Friday 3rd May via Undead Collective Records. Prior to this, the band have revealed a video for the single, “The Ache”.
Buoyed by a revitalised line up, the four piece have recently toured throughout Europe with a route across Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Luxembourg and The Netherlands. As well as captivating crowds in the mainland, the band have enticed audiences on their home turf, sharing stages with everyone from Fangclub, Vasudeva, Tellison and Beach Slang, as well as playing alongside Jonah Matranga at the end of 2018 to tour the 20 year anniversary of Far’s seminal album, Water & Solutions.
Last year, Merrick’s Tusk commenced work on their new record with visionary producer Jason Wilson (Dinosaur Pile Up, Reuben, Fightstar) at Stakeout Studios, London. After a series of intense sessions, the band came away with their full-length debut album, Between The Earth And The Trees. “The Ache” is inspired by the trials and tribulations of life within a band. The guys elaborate:
Being in a band is hard work especially while trying to maintain a ‘normal life’ (whatever that may be). The past year was a mentally challenging year for all of us at points and for differing reason. With all of us contemplating quitting at some point. Along the way we realised that our friendship should always come first. In being more upfront, we realised we all supported each other much more than we’d somehow lead ourselves to believe. And we’re stronger band for it.
The post-hardcore outfit will tour and push the release throughout the UK and beyond. Check out their social sites for updates and show announcements.
