After a seven-year break, The Mercy House are back and have today released their new single, Redemption, on the tenth anniversary of the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, A Broken State of Bliss.
“In these uncertain times,” the band said, “it feels like ten years is long enough to wait. Redemption is a track about being true to yourself and not allowing your voice to be silenced. It’s a poetic and pertinent message to share with you all at this juncture in the band’s history. This won’t be the last you hear from us. Stay tuned…”
Formed in London in 2009, The Mercy House gained a cult following and swiftly built their reputation as an incendiary live act. Their debut album, A Broken State of Bliss, was released in 2012 to rave reviews, and their touring schedule was relentless and led to appearances and Download and Bloodstock.
The band last played live at the now infamous Purple Turtle Club in Camden, North London, in June 2015 before going on an indefinite hiatus later that year. Since then, new fans have continued to discover their music through streaming platforms and social media.
The video was filmed in London last March and was directed by Henry Croston. The Mercy House are currently working on and recording further new material for a later release.
