Ahead of their European Tour—we sat down in a Berlin apartment with the core members of the band—Carson Cox (vocals, electronics), Dave Vassalotti (guitar, electronics) Pat Brady (bass) with the addition of drummer Leo Suarez. In the interview we discussed the industrial influences permeating the new album, influences such as William Burroughs, as well as the band’s different approach to translating the music into a live performance.

Merchandise’s European leg of their huge three-month transcontinental tour begins this week—with support coming from EZTV.
