The Mercy Kills New Rule


The Mercy Kills New Rule

New Rule is the debut EP by Melbourne dirty / sleaze rock band The Mercy Kills. Written and produced in 2010, this five-track release has strong elements of the four members influences, with elements of post-punk, grunge and rock 'n' roll. TMK are proud that it stands strong, alongside the music they have produced over the ten years since. 

Initially New Rule was only available as a short run of CD's and was never officially released. The band have always felt this as a thorn in their side and are now happy to see it getting out there through Golden Robot Records and is out now.

Fall is the post-punk inspired song is about trying to keep in control of your life, while things feel like they are falling apart around you. This high energy track has always been a favourite between the band members and is still relevant to them today.

Mix two parts dirty rock with two parts sleaze punk and you get a four shot cocktail called The Mercy Kills featuring Mark E (Vox/Guitar), Jen X Costello (Bass/Vox), Nathalie Gellé (Guitar/Vox) and Josh Black (Drums).

Their tastes in music, the desire to write great songs and blast out a killer live show were the key factors shared by this four-piece outfit.  The Mercy Kills took their name from a line in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, "It was a mercy killing".
