Merchandise released a new album, A Corpse Wired For Sound, last fall via 4AD. Now they have shared a video for "Right Back to the Start." The band's own Carson Cox directed the video, in which he has a dream about women with the same spider tattoo on their wrists. The women are all played by Katherine Alice Greer of the Washington DC band Priests (she also co-wrote the video with Cox). Lindsey Jordan of Snail Mail also appears. Watch it below via Stereogum (who premiered it). Also below are the band's upcoming tour dates.

Cox had this to say about the video to Stereogum: "The song 'Right Back to the Start' is about finding yourself repeating old scenarios. The video plays out like a modern version of a classical tragedy. 'The Spider' (the three different women who all bear striking resemblance) is the magnetic antagonist to the 'Tragic protagonist' (the man following the Spider) who can't understand what's going on, following the Spider over and over. The faces may change but the story stays the same. The narrator (Lindsey Jordan) sings along, as a Greek chorus would. The video's storyline was heavily influenced by the film Vertigo and the genius of Rod Serling. We filmed the project over a weekend in December in Washington, DC with cameraman Drew Hagelin."
