Format
It must be dreadfully difficult for The Men to tie-down a consistent sort of fan base at this point, for every album they put out takes their legacy in a new direction. From the post-hardcore guitar wailing of Immaculada and Leave Home, through the more accessible indie and Americana influences of New Moon and Tomorrow’s Hits, back again to punk rock catharsis on Devil Music before yet a further about-turn for 2018’s a-bit-of-everything Drift. So, what about eighth album, Mercy? Well, for starters, it signifies the first time The Men have created three records in a row with the same line-up. But more importantly, Mercy finds the band exploring a classic rock sound. The kind of thing you might expect to find in a cool Dad’s 70s LP collection (so we’re not talking trash classic rock here). As ever, though, The Men are rarely without their urgency and energy and Mercy has it in spades. Mercy is available in a limited indie store exclusive purple swirl vinyl. A digital download is included.
