Hardcore band Hands of Mercy were only available in Sydney, Australia in 2007, with vocalist Scott Parrot leading guitarists Adam McLain and Josh Campiao, drummer Cullum Jensen-MacKinnon, and bassist Michael Dawson. The music group perfected their mosh-friendly, riff-driven audio through many years of relentless touring, including displays using the Ghost Inside, EACH DAY to keep in mind, and Amity Affliction. Hands of Mercy’s preliminary recordings, two EPs (2007’s Garbage the Party and 2008’s Scum of the planet earth) and a full-length (2010’s The Fallout), had been self-released. For the band’s worldwide debut, they authorized with UNFD for the discharge of 2012’s Last Lamps, which was documented in Boston with maker Shane Frisby. The group came back to Boston in 2013 to record the follow-up, Handle, but made a decision to re-record the recording the following 12 months when vocalist Scott Parrot left the music group. Nick Bellringer, of Brisbane, became the band’s fresh vocalist, and Handle was completed and released by UNFD in the summertime of 2014.
