Sign of friendship to merge records, share “Ugly Little Victory”: listen

Friendship, the group from Philadelphia led by Dan Wriggins, already have a few albums to their name, including 2017’s Off-season shock and 2019 Dream, both released via Owen Ashworth’s Orindal Records. Today, the group announced that they have signed with Merge for their upcoming, which will be released later this year. “If there’s a label that does it better than Merge, we haven’t heard of it, and we’ve heard of a lot of music stuff,” Wriggins said in a statement. We are excited for the beyond. In the words of Hank Williams, “Move on, cold dog, ’cause a hot dog’s movin’ in!” To celebrate the announcement, the band are sharing a new song, “Ugly Little Victory,” which they have played live a little now.
