Rock band Have Mercy are excited to share another single ahead of the release of their forthcoming album NUMB, out December 8th via Rude Records. Today the group has shared “Middle”, an upbeat track about being stuck between the unknown and the familiar. Watch the new music video, here: Have Mercy – Middle (Official Lyric Video) – YouTube

Shares front man Brian Swindle: “‘Middle’ is about being in between two places. Knowing you want or need one thing but going back to something because it feels familiar and comfortable. I think it’s one of the more fun songs on the record. There’s not much to it but that fun chorus hook.”

Have Mercy reunited last year and released new music for the first time since 2019, capturing the attention of Brooklyn Vegan, FLOOD Magazine, The Noise, and more. The self-titled EP features recent singles “Fast Car”, “SIO”, and “I’m Gonna Be Ok”, and is out now via ZODHIAC Records. Stream Have Mercy now here.

Following the EP, Have Mercy signed with international label Rude Records to release a CD re-pressing of their debut LP The Earth Pushed Back. They also shared a previously unreleased b-side from their 2012 EP, My Oldest Friend, titled “Seventeen”. Most recently the band covered Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979” for Changing Tides, a compilation of acoustic covers benefitting Sea Shepherd as part of Rude Records’ charitable arm Rude Cares.
