Mooney Suzuki tour, release track

Post Author:

Mooney Suzuki have anounced supporting dates for their upcoming LP number four, Have Mercy. Usually bands pretend that they don't write their own press releases. Frontman Sammy James Jr. quotes himself, slipping into third person band-speak, no less:

“The moment is finally upon us… On June 19th, the long, long, long awaited 4th Mooney Suzuki studio album, “Have Mercy,” shall spring forth into the world in all its glory – AND THEN SOME! New York City’s Foot-Stampin’ Hand-Clappin’ Rock’n’Roll Sensation coming soon to your neck of the woods! See, feel, touch and hear the electrified and amplified vibrations of the Mooney Suzuki, the R&B sweat machine – you will leave the show covered head to toe in Rock’n’Roll…”

Stranded by the V2 restructuring mess, down a rhythm section and guitarist, and the first studio effort since the band left the comfort of a major label, Have Mercy is largely the effort of frontman James Jr., who privileged lyrics and melody over full-band electric fire-bombing for the first time.
