M(h)aol’s debut album Attachment Styles is being re-issued on Merge Records


The intersectional feminist post-punk band M(h)aol have announced their debut album Attachment Styles is to be re-released and re-issued with Merge Records.

The album was previously released via via TULLE Collective, this past February, and will be re-released on November 17th.

The Merge Records reissue of Attachment Styles features the previously unreleased song ‘Jack’, the first song M(h)aol wrote as a unit and one that they play live, and is available on blood swirled red vinyl and CD.

It was announced earlier this month, that the band’s singer Róisín Nic Ghearailt would be leaving the group, citing the difficult lifestyle of a touring musician with a chronic condition. The band are continuing as a four-piece for now.

They support Squid in Dublin and Belfast in October and play the Pitchfork festival in November. Live dates.

 Attachment Styles is an album about social connection, queerness, and healing, taking the listener on a journey through various stages of self-acceptance and community-building. The Guardian agreed, calling Attachment Styles “a series of moments that centre on intersectional feminism and reclamation of power, underpinned by a soundtrack of clattering drums and jagged, dissonant guitars.”
