HAND OF MERCY have released the video for new single ‘Axis’, taken from their forthcoming album Resolve  out November 3rd via UNFD. The track was premiered earlier this week on BBC Radio 1’s The Rock Show with Daniel P Carter in the UK to an exceptional response.

Check it out here:

Resolve is the first album to feature the vocals of Nick Bellringer, who replaced original vocalist Scott Bird in June. Fans can hear Nick’s incredible vocals on album tracks ‘Desperate Measures’, and ‘Static’ here. Limited Edition vinyl and CD bundles are available now via 24Hundred.net.

Formed in 2007, HAND OF MERCY have become a mainstay of the Australian hardcore scene, with their riff-heavy moshcore becoming one of the most signature sounds the scene has to offer. They have toured with EVERYONE, and in doing so have gained the respect and adoration of bands and punters alike.

In 2012, they released their UNFD debut Last Lights, which took the band to new heights around the world. The album debuted at #44 on the ARIA Charts, and saw the band tour throughout Australia, Europe and the UK for two years straight, putting together a loyal fan base across the world.

Resolve was recorded in Boston in late 2013, but its release was delayed when they parted ways with Bird. Flying in was Brisbane native Nick Bellringer, who immediately added a new energy and attitude to their music. Bellringer had a trial by fire upon joining – first touring with Deez Nuts on the Rampage Tour, before heading to Brisbane to record his vocals with Troy Brady from The Amity Affliction. From there, HAND OF MERCY played sold out shows with Architects and will now head out on the massive Resolve Tour of Australia in November.

Passing every test, Bellringer has breathed new life into Resolve, which is a stand out album from one of Australia’s leading hardcore units.

HAND OF MERCY – Resolve is out November 3rd via UNFD.
