Merchandise at Mousetrap in Chicago, April 2012 (more by Jimmy Farabi)

You may have noticed the announcements of CMJ artists trickling out as of late (like Sub Pop's lineup), but now comes the official word from the fest on another batch of bands. Highilights include AraabMUZIK, UK acts Savages and Everything Eveything, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Cities Aviv, Ken Mode (playing with Pig Destroyer), Daughn Gibson (playing with Pissed Jeans), Local H, Slug Guts, Dune Rats, Royal Canoe, and Sleepies among many many others. A full listing of the second round of CMJ artists is below.

One of said surprises is Merchandise, who plays NYC tonight at WIERD (9/12). The show is first of THREE NYC dates for the band, who will also play 538 Johnson tomorrow (9/13) before hitting Saint Vitus on Friday (9/14, tickets).

A list of the second round of CMJ artists is below, along with updated Merchandise dates and a recent video.

Don't think Merchandise is playing 538 Johnson tomorrow. They'll be at the show as fans.

Check out The Slack Tide... not on this list but they are playing the Spincloud CMJ showcase, whenever that is. Anyway, they f'ing rock. Like a Black Keys / White Stripes / Sublime hybrid of sorts. Caught them last month through a friend of a friend in the band and they are gonna explode in NYC. You heard it here first!!

OK...a passable, low rent Red Lorry Yellow Lorry/Sisters rip off. No prob I guess.

Too many "Hey" bands

I'm trying to get excited about CMJ this year, but I'm just so depressed that Obama's trying to destroy America with Socialisms.

I dig the flip flops... saw The Slack Tide at Pianos a couple of months ago, they are legit. That youtube vid sucks though
