Have Mercy are currently gearing up to hit the road with Real Friends, Neck Deep, and Cruel Hand for a North American tour, which kicks off October 25th in Chicago, IL at The Bottom Lounge! Tickets for the tour are on sale now. For more information, visit http://hopelessrecords.com/tours/. In addition, Have Mercy have been announced as an “Official Artist” to play the 2014 CMJ Music Marathon. They will be playing October 22nd at The Living Room in Williamsburg.
In the case of Baltimore’s Have Mercy, what wins out-and what ultimately astounds-is raw, unfiltered passion. The band’s debut LP, The Earth Pushed Back, was one of the most honest records of 2013-an album that fans of punk and emo from Brand New to Tigers Jaw to Taking Back Sunday simply couldn’t afford to miss out on.
Produced by Paul Leavitt (All Time Low, The Dangerous Summer, many more), A Place Of Our Own is a refined, more muscular version of what they did well on The Earth Pushed Back – as if they trimmed the fat on some aspects of their sound while showing major growth across the board. It’s an organic, sometimes subtle and sometimes very noticeable type of growth. Everyone simply sounds better from an instrumental perspective, and Swindle’s gritty vocals have become only more defining this go-round.
Since forming in 2011, Swindle feels the band truly has “grown up as musicians and people and cannot wait for everyone to hear A Place Of Our Own.”
