Watch :: Merchandise share 'Right Back To The Start' video and rescheduled EU/UK dates

Words: Ellie Ward

Things are now back on track for Merchandise after frontman Carson Cox fractured his jaw backstage last November after passing out and thereby forcing the cancellation of the tour.

The band, who were touring new album 'A Corpse Wired For Sound', have now released a new video for track 'Right Back To The Start', which was directed once again by Cox and features in the clip with Katie Alice Greer of DC punks Priests, and Snail Mail’s Lindsey Jordan.

Says Vox: "The song is about finding yourself repeating old scenarios. The video plays out like a modern version of a classical tragedy. 'The Spider' (the 3 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."

Watch above.
