Buffalo, NY-based punk quartet Pentimento and Baltimore, MD-based indie rock act Have Mercy will embark on a summer co-headlining tour from July 10-27. The tour is being sponsored by Zero Platoon. They will be joined by New Jersey’s Gates for the entire run as well.
Pentimento is continuing to tour on the strength of their most recent release, the Inside The Sea EP. The four-song EP was praised for its sincere songwriting by PropertyOfZack, its evident evolution by Punknews, and its veteran craftsmanship by AbsolutePunk.
Have Mercy‘s debut LP, The Earth Pushed Back, dropped last year via Topshelf Records and garnered extensive critical acclaim, with AbsolutePunk calling it “one of 2013’s best and most personal records,” and naming it to their 2013 Albums Of The Year list. The band most recently released two new songs on a split with Daisyhead via No Sleep Records and announced their signing to Hopeless Records with a new album coming later this year.
Gates reissued their You Are All You Have Left To Fear EP in late 2013 after signing to Pure Noise Records, with Rock Sound proclaiming, “A year on from its initial release, this EP still hits harder than pretty much everything else on the planet.” AbsolutePunk called it “a black hole of beauty.” You should probably listen to it.
Zero Platoon is dedicated to bringing hope and encouragement to members of the U.S. armed forces who struggle with depression and other emotional and psychological issues that stem from the adaptation into military life. Founded and staffed by veterans, ZP exists to motivate, inspire and, ultimately, help in healing and recovery for those who serve our country while dealing with these issues.
