The Mercy Now

The Mercy Now

 Toronto, Ontario, CAN

“brash, attitude-driven garage-blues energy filtered through glam swagger weaving through a car crash of dirty riffs, soaring vocals, and the joyous attitude-driven sprit of the past that still rings true today. A blazing, upper register sound where you can sense both the fun and danger.”

"When you find yourself involuntarily banging your head 10 seconds into an album and the hard-rock fever doesn’t break until the end, that’s a very good sign."
