Post-punk unit Merchandise have unveiled a dramatic new clip for their latest single "Telephone."

The track comes from the band's recent record After the End, while the video is a reimagining of John Byrne's play The Slab Boys. The boys in the band take on roles previously played by Robert Carlisle, Robbie Coltrane and Alan Cumming, while Byrne himself makes a cameo.

In a statement about the video, frontman Carson Cox said, "This video was lots of work. For sure our most theatrical but also our most animated. Under the amazing art direction of John Byrne and a load of Scots, we were able to not only confuse time but create a new type of surrealism. We smoked a ton of cigarettes and stuffed ourselves with food till the ideas came flowing out."

Byrne, meanwhile, also only had nice things to say, describing the band as a "delightful bunch of guys" who were "really great to work with."
