Merit To Release "Living With The Low"(LANSDALE, PA) --  Lansdale pop punk act Merit has announced their third record, Living With The Low. Featuring latest single, "Woe, She's A Gravedigger."

Living With The Low was recorded/produced by Matt Brasch of The Wonder Years, mixed by Nick Steinborn of The Wonder Years, and mastered by Bill Henderson of Thursday. Fans can pre-order the new EP, set to be released on July 26th, here.

"The record is basically a psycho-self analysis of dealing with betrayal within romantic and other personal relationships," shares vocalist Mike Dougherty."The lack of honesty and loyalty, especially how constant it was in my life then, really played a part in the downfall of my psyche and has made an everlasting impact on how I handle things in my day to day life."

He continues: "Each song on this record has a specific emotion attached to them, that's why we named them the way we did. Despite its light sounding instrumentation, this is a very dark record to reflect a low period of my life. Hence 'Living with the Low."

Merit is a pop-punk band from Lansdale, PA. Since forming in 2016 the group has played up and down the east coast, growing their underground fan base with their catchy hooks and exciting live shows.
