New release from: THE MERCY KILLS – New Rule (February 12, 2021)

New Rule is the debut EP by Melbourne dirty / sleaze rock band The Mercy Kills. Written and produced in 2010, this five-track release has strong elements of the four members influences, with elements of post-punk, grunge and rock ‘n’ roll. TMK are proud that it stands strong, alongside the music they have produced over the ten years since.

Initially, New Rule was only available as a short run of CD’s and was never officially released. The band have always felt this as a thorn in their side and are now happy to see it getting out there through Golden Robot Records and will be released on 12th February.

Fall” is the post-punk inspired song about trying to keep in control of your life, while things feel like they are falling apart around you. This high-energy track has always been a favourite between the band members and is still relevant to them today.


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

Should you happen across a flyer with The Mercy Kills written anywhere on it, make note of the date, and keep the night free”.

Big, brash, and bold were The Mercy Kills. The band’s energy screeched like a rogue ‘68 Camaro right until the very end…
