Biography

Mercenaries formed in March 2010 as a group of childhood friends who created a brand of music that crosses the lines of traditional hardcore punk – with frantic and fast-paced metal.

The result -- a cross between Tennessee’s Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza and Atlanta’s The Chariot.

“We’re really just a bunch of dudes who like to hang out and make terrifying music,” Michael Burton said – vocalist of Mercenaries.

“The way we perform, the way we are live we make sure everyone knows that our healthcare is free,” bass player Kris Chaput said.

The live show is – for the lack of a better word, incredibly intense.

Clean, crisp, and loud hardcore that punches the face of those watching.

Mercenaries released their first EP entitled Don’t Worry About It- and quickly signed onto Feast or Famine Records. The five-song release was given away for free via MySpace – and was recorded by close friend Salvatore Guaiana at Paragon Studios.

What’s next is a full-length record currently being written by the boys - which will be released by Feast or Famine next summer.

These childhood friends are excited to take on whatever the industry can throw at them, and are planning on writing music that will make all lovers of aggressive music jump out of their skin.

With support from companies such as Chicago’s Emperor Cabinets, California’s TRX Cymbals and Guelph’s Defacto Drums – Mercenaries is lined up to make a big impact on the Canadian, and American music scene.
