Have Mercy is an American rock band from Baltimore, Maryland currently signed to Hopeless Records.

History[edit]

Have Mercy began in late 2009 after drummer Aaron Alt and guitarist Joey McCusker decided to disembark from their previous band. Looking for something different, following their formative years in the metal scene, they contacted long time friend Brian Swindle to head the group. Since then, they have released three albums, two EP’s, and two splits. Their debut album, titled The Earth Pushed Back, was released in 2013 via Topshelf Records.[1][2][3] Their second album, titled A Place of Our Own, was released in 2014 via Hopeless Records.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12] They released their third album Make The Best of It on Hopeless Records on April 21, 2017.
