Melbourne, Australia’s The Mercy Kills are back, with the release of their new EP ‘X,’ a remastered collection of band favourites, out now via Golden Robot Records.
“‘X‘ is a celebration of ten years together as The Mercy Kills. This EP is like a live set of our favourite tracks, as if we were blastin’ out a killer 30-minute show. These seven songs have been selected from five different releases, over the last decade.’”
– The Mercy Kills

The seven songs that appear on ‘X,’ were painstakingly hand-picked by The Mercy Kills. After many squabbles and fights over which songs would make the cut, the band settled on the best seven songs that deliver a strong representation of their releases to date. They enjoy new life with slick remastering that adds a new dimension to them.
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“.
“Take the energy from ‘Appetite for Destruction’ era Guns ‘N’ Roses, mix it with some Ramones style punk, a lot of energy and you have The Mercy Kills…”
– SF Media (Brisbane)
“Their dramatic set included flaming drumsticks and power riffs, worthy of international rock stars”.
– Live Music (Adelaide)
“Should you happen across a flyer with The Mercy Kills written anywhere on it, make note of the date, and keep the night free”.
–SF Media (Melbourne)
“Big, brash, and bold were ‘The Mercy Kills. The band’s energy screeched like a rogue ‘68 Camaro right until the very end…”
– The Music (Sydney)
