Earlier this year, Florida post-punk outfit Merchandise shared a new track titled “Flower of Sex,” which was a preview of an upcoming full-length set due later in 2016. Now the full details of that album have been revealed. On September 23, the band will release A Corpse Wired For Sound, via 4AD. That’s the album’s artwork above. Today the band shared another track from the album, “End of the Week,” in the form of a video directed by the band’s frontman, Carson Cox. The song itself is pretty dense and heavy, blending post-punk with shoegaze sounds, and the video has some suitably psychedelic smoke effects. Watch it below, and check out the band’s upcoming fall tour dates in North America and Europe.

A Corpse Wired For Sound follows 2014’s After the End. Carson Cox also recently released a new album with his other band, Death Index.
