CMJ Artist Spotlight: Have Mercy

For Fans Of: Brand New, Foo Fighters

What Have Mercy brings to the table is something resonating and something forceful, in an unabridged form. The band has now mastered their own style of no-frills indie-rock, an unapologetic, driving sound that begs listeners to scream along rather than hum quietly to themselves. A Place Of Our Own does more than just follow up a successful debut–it expands upon it and makes a clear-cut statement that Have Mercy is here to stay.

What has been your biggest accomplishment this year so far?
Most definitely releasing our new album. Hopeless records has always been a label that all of us have looked up to and to be able to work with them is a dream come true for us.

What are some of your goals for CMJ week? 
This will be our 3rd CMJ and they are always a great time for us to go and see some of our friends in other bands that we don’t get to see often. But also we want to be able to promote our new album as much as we can. We are very proud of it and want to get out to as many people as we can.

What’s on the agenda for the rest of 2014?
TOUR TOUR TOUR! Haha we have month long full US tour with Real friends in the fall and a bunch other tour plans for the rest of the year.

CMJ Schedule: 10/22 – The Living Room – Brooklyn, NY
