MERRIMENT TO RELEASEDEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM‘SWAY’ ON APRIL 8

TOUR WITH EISLEY KICKS OFF APRIL 1


MAR 03 – Merriment will release their debut full-length album, Sway, on April 8 – while the band is on tour with Eisley. Tickets for the tour are on sale now HERE. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.

Sway was recorded in the band’s hometown of Tyler, TX, with Charlie Brand of Miniature Tigers serving as producer. The album will be released on Rory Records – Max Bemis of Say Anything’s imprint within Equal Vision Records.
The stunning new album features twelve tracks filled with lush harmonies, all serenely delivered through the sweet, angelic vocals of Christie DuPree. On Sway, Merriment flawlessly pairs hypnotic indie pop melodies with the warmth of folk-tinged Americana elements to create a bright yet delicate and graceful blend that is all their own.
This past November, Merriment released two tracks from the album, “Backwards” and “Nothing To Lose”, as a digital single - just prior to their two-part full US tour with Max Bemis (of Say Anything), Matt Pryor, Perma, Sherri DuPree-Bemis of Eisley, and Allison Weiss.
Upon the release of “Backwards”, American Songwriter declared the “harmony-rich, surging acoustic folk song” as “one of our favorite songs this year.” Alternative Press, too, has shown early support of Merriment, featuring them as one of the “100 Bands You Need To Know in 2014” in the current issue of the magazine, which is now available in stores and online HERE.
A tour sampler featuring one song each from Sway and Merriment’s self-released, debut EP Through The Rough (2012), as well as four live acoustic tracks from Eisley, can be downloaded now via Bandcamp.
Preorders for Sway will launch in the coming weeks through MerchNOW.
TRACKLISTING - Sway 1. Take Heart 2. Tremendous Love 3. Somehow 4. Now I’m Silver 5. Backwards 6. Two Worlds 7. Patterns 8. Spill 9. Nothing To Lose 10. Down By The Creek 11. Right Again 12. Unhinged
