Thirsty Merc Announce New Album and Tour
12 years ago Thirsty Merc emerged on the Australian music scene with their first independent EP. They've since followed up with three hugely acclaimed studio albums and a stack of radio hits, including 20 Good Reasons, Someday Someday, Mousetrap Heart and In The Summertime.
Thirsty Merc are still at it and they're gearing up to release their fourth studio album, Shifting Gears. Only this time, they're doing it without the help of a major label.
After a chunk of songwriting in Sydney, Melbourne, and Los Angeles, the band utilised crowdfunding platform PledgeMusic to support their efforts in the studio. The fan response was overwhelming, allowing the band to reach their goal within 48 hours.
The first single from the album, The Good Life, goes to radio this Friday July 31 and to celebrate the band have announced a new national tour for September.
The tour begins in Melbourne, with a show at Caravan Club on Monday September 14 and Memo Music Hall on Wednesday September 16. Tickets are on sale now. For further information on all shows, go to thirstymerc.com.
