Fast rising post-hardcore foursome, MERRICK’S TUSK, pull from a potent range
of sources stemming from Thursday, Rival Schools, and At The Drive In, to
Coheed And Cambria and the Deftones. The ascending Nottingham combo release
their much-anticipated debut album, Between The Earth And The Trees, on
Friday 3rd May via Undead Collective Records. Before then, the band have
revealed a video for the single, Blueprint – .

MERRICK’s TUSK have been ever-present on the UK scene in one way or another
for the past decade. John (guitar, vocals) and Adam (bass, vocals) toured in
several bands before enlisting Tim on drums and laying down their debut EP,
Sonder, in June 2014. That trio remained constant until the arrival of Sam
(guitar), who entered the fray after the release of their sophomore EP,
Regroup & Reform, in 2016.

Assured by the new line-up, the revitalised four-piece headed out to tour
Europe, pushing their old Royal Mail van to the limit with a route across
Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Luxembourg and The Netherlands. As well as
captivating crowds in the mainland, the band have enticed audiences on their
home turf, sharing stages with everyone from Fangclub, Vasudeva, Tellison
and Beach Slang, as well as playing alongside Jonah Matranga at the end of
2018 to tour the 20 year anniversary of Far’s seminal album, Water &

In 2018, MERRICK’S TUSK commenced work on their new record with visionary
producer Jason Wilson (Dinosaur Pile Up, Reuben, Fightstar) at Stakeout
Studios, London. After a series of intense sessions, the band came away with
their full-length debut album, Between The Earth And The Trees. From back to
front, the release shines with acute oft-kilter phrasing, engrossing guitar
parts and hammering rhythm work, all cleverly woven together with killer
hooks. The post-hardcore outfit will tour and push the release throughout
the UK and beyond.
