Biography[]

Merge was founded in 1989 at the same time as Superchunk, mainly to release Superchunk albums along with other bands they liked -- in fact, the first releases were by other bands on cassette. Since then, they've grown to be one of the bigger known Indie-Rock labels with a cult following -- one of those labels, like Sub Pop that has folks who will buy any record on Merge, just because it's on Merge.
