Merit is a pop-punk band from Lansdale, PA. Since forming in 2016, the group has played up and down the East Coast, growing their underground fan base with their catchy hooks and exciting live shows.

On July 26, they will be releasing their third record entitled Living with the Low, recorded and produced by Matt Brasch (of The Wonder Years), mixed by Nick Steinborn (also of The Wonder Years), and mastered by Bill Henderson (of Thursday). We’re stoked to premiere it right here!

“The record is basically a psycho-self analysis of dealing with betrayal within romantic and other personal relationships,” says the band. “The lack of honesty and loyalty, especially how constant it was in my life then, really played a part in the downfall of my psyche and has made an everlasting impact on how I handle things in my day-to-day life. ”

Also, to coincide with the release of Living with the Low, they are teaming up with local brewery Imprint Brewing to brew, can, and release a blood orange/pineapple/cherry/milkshake IPA dubbed “Pop-Punch.” The beer will be set to release the same day the new record comes out.

Touring in early July and fall 2019, Merit sets their sights on pushing further west.

Upcoming Tour Dates:
7/26 – Hatfield, PA @ Acoustic Record Release Show
7/27 – Lansdale, PA @ Record Release Show
