Chaotic hardcore ragers Divider and Mercy Ties will be going on tour. The slate of dates canvases the East Coast, starting in Divider's home city of Long Island on July 12 and ending in Kingston, NY on July 19. The two also hit Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. On July 14, they'll drop into NYC's Grand Victory with Nightcrawler also joining in on the fun. Tickets for that show are available now.
Divider and Mercy Ties are both rostermates on Glory Kid Ltd. Divider, containing a connection to underrated metalcore group Skycamefalling, signed on to release their debut LP, All Barren, on September 23. The tracklisting for All Barren is below. Mercy Ties and their fresh take on metallic hardcore of the Suicide Note variety was a favorite of Invisible Oranges' last year. Said Doug Moore, "This stuff satisfies primarily on the brainstem level, like a bodily function. You feel it coming for a moment, and then it's happening; when it's over, you feel better, though it's hard to articulate why." Their last release, A Dim Lit Place, can be played in full below.
All dates are listed, along with the All Barren details and the A Dim Lit Place stream, below...
