Our Bandcamp of the day to kick off the week is Merit, who are unleashing a new record, Living With The Low, out July 26 .
Hailing from Lansdale, PA, Merit already have a seal of approval from members of The Wonder Years and Thursday. The band’s new EP, Living With The Low, was recorded and produced by Matt Brasch, mixed by Nick Steinborn, and mastered by Bill Henderson.
Living With The Low is a record about dealing with the betrayal that too often comes with personal relationships (romantic and otherwise). Though the record’s driving melodies are bursting with energy and enthusiasm, lyrically Living With The Low is a dark and brooding look at one of the lowest periods in lead singer Mike Dougherty’s life.
