MERGE RECORDS will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2014, and the label is planning a year-long celebration beginning with OR THOUSANDS OF PRIZES, a snapshot of MERGE at 25.
The subscription-based, bonus-filled box set celebrating MERGE’s anniversary called OR THOUSANDS OF PRIZES will include twelve 7-inches (split singles, mostly) on colored vinyl featuring exclusive, newly recorded tracks from 25 MERGE artists including SUPERCHUNK, MIKAL CRONIN, MOUNT MORIAH, THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, THE CLIENTELE, DESTROYER, KING KHAN & THE SHRINES, LAMBCHOP and more.
Bonus items for subscribers, will include a collector’s box to show off and organize the 7-inch collection, an exclusive T-shirt, a “surprise” bonus 12-inch, a CD and digital download of all OR THOUSANDS OF PRIZES tracks, and an updated and newly issued e-book version of our visual discography, The MERGE RECORDS Companion.
In addition, all subscribers will have first access to tickets for special MERGE anniversary events and be entered to win giveaways throughout 2014.
