So many questions abounded when we announced the formation of Fistful of Mercy, the super group comprised of Joseph Arthur, Ben Harper, and Dhani Harrison. Surely you were blown away, but part of you wanted answers. Well, we might not be as super as these lads, but we’re here to fill in those blank shades.
While you’ve already gotten a taste of the band live, a record is on the way. The band’s debut, As I Call You Down, will be released October 5th. On top of a tracklist, we’ve also have a copy of the album’s self-titled track streaming below. Or, maybe you’re inclined to watch a video; you can do that below, too.
As if all that weren’t enough, Fistful of Mercy are headed out for a short tour this November, with stops in Seattle, WA, New York, and even the same cemetery Belle & Sebastian are playing. We hope that answered some of your questions.
Check out the tracks, video, and the tour schedule below (with tickets available at each venue). As I Call You Down is scheduled to hit stores October 5th via Harrison’s Hot Records.
