Mercies began in 2009 as a creative outlet for Los Angeles-based musician, Josh Rheault, and Boston-based drummer/composer, Sammy Dent. After parting ways with their former band, The Dear Hunter, Josh began exchanging demos with Sammy and shortly after returned home to rural north-central Connecticut to continue writing. Tucked into this simple and forest-filled landscape was an old tobacco barn that Josh and his family began restoring into a recording/rehearsal space. A sophomore LP entitled Blue Against Green will be released on Randm Records January 20, 2015. Have Mercies.
