Limited to 2,000 copies
540 Records is pleased to announce a 3-way split LP between three groups of close friends: Merchandise, Destruction Unit, and Milk Music. This will be a Record Store Day exclusive, limited to a one-time pressing of 2,000 copies. After touring together in the summer of 2013 and also being involved in the same music scenes for years beyond that it would make total sense that the three bands would team up for this and now the day has finally come. USA ‘13 features stunning artwork from ZZ Ramirez of The Ukiah Drag, as well as a zine by J.S. Aurelius of Destruction Unit / Ascetic House. Some of the first Merchandise recordings featuring their new drummer Elsner Nino appear on this split aside from the recently sold out 12” single  on 4AD, which is where the band recently signed. Milk Music contributes a re-recorded favorite, “Violence Now” and covers by Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Johnny Thunders while Destruction Unit handed over two tracks from their Deep Trip recording sessions including “Feed The Dogs”, one of the hardest hitting songs the band has ever recorded. You can stream the Merchandise track “Figured Out” below and see the bands upcoming tour dates in June with The Ukiah Drag as well as a handful of European dates. Destruction Unit also have tours coming up with Deafheaven and CCR Headcleaner.

Sooooo…I just found a dead kitten, on the side of the road…just as I had been thinking about that I haven’t collected any bones this year, like I had wanted to, and was going to miss the best season for decomposition. It was out in the country, away from homes….so I bagged it. I also really didn’t like the idea of leaving it to rot on the road…I always feel bad for an animal’s final resting place, to be there. I can’t cross the border with it, so I’m buying a shovel. Going to bury it on a trail along the way, and come back for it, in a couple of months. I’ve never done this before, so I’m feeling a bit sketchy about it.
