Thirsty Merc

- Back To The Grind Tour!!!

There is no better way for a hard working touring rock band to introduce their new single, The Grind from the Shifting Gears album, than with a national tour.

Kicking off on 7 April in the nation’s capitol, Thirsty Merc’s Back To The Grind Tour will hit over 20 cities and towns across all the mainland states through to the end of May 2016 on the NSW South Coast.

Lead singer, Rai Thistlethwayte, is rightly proud of their new single and said:  “After a really hard time at the end of 2015, we've turned the corner into 2016 and we feel the best way to get on with things is to keep busy, keep working hard and do what we love: PLAYING LIVE! We're stoked with our new single too.  It's got the Merc quirk, with grind-y guitars in the choruses, a swaggery tempo, it's a return to our rock roots. Back To The Grind is going to be an unforgettable tour, we can feel it. We'll be giving it our absolute ALL!”

The band’s new album, Shifting Gears, was released late last year and it’s first single, The Good Life, garnered major radio support around the country including the Triple M network and Southern Cross Austereo regional stations.
