Cable Ties are an Australian, Melbourne based band which include Shauna Boyle, Nick Brown, and Jenny McKechnie. They announced the signing with Merge Records. They will release a new album which will be out in 2020 and shared a new track titled “Tell Them Where To Go” which shows the powerful and rough sound.
Speaking of the signing, the band’s Nick Brown offers: “Merge are an incredible and inspiring label. To have grown from a DIY, bedroom cassette-dubbing operation to one of the most beloved labels in the world is remarkable. That Laura and Mac would take a shine to a little group like us (in amongst all the stuff they get sent) is wild. We couldn’t think of a better home to look after our riffs than Merge.”
Superchunk’s Laura Ballance – co-founder of Merge – adds: “Merge Records is very pleased to announce the start of our relationship with Cable Ties. Their work ethic, DIY attitude, and catchy songs make them a perfect match for us. Their songs have an honesty and directness that the world needs right now.”
