Merge To Celebrate 20th With Chapel Hill Fest
Meanwhile, the Shins have been added to the lineup for the covers album included with "SCORE! Merge Records: The First 20 Years," a subscription-only boxed set with a host of components.
They bolster a covers album roster that already includes Bright Eyes, Broken Social Scene, Death Cab For Cutie, Ted Leo, the National and the New Pornographers.
Proceeds will benefit a variety of charitable causes chosen by curators of the box's 14 Merge compilations, including R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, David Byrne and Zach Galifianakis.
