DOWNLOAD: Sweet Cobra - "Mercy" (MP3)

Sweet Cobra's Mercy

Mat Arluck is gone but not forgotten. The guitarist's legacy lives on, as Arluck left his dirty fingerprints all over the new LP by Sweet Cobra. Mercy (pictured above) hits store shelves on Tuesday (9/28) via Black Market Activities. The album, which mixes moments of driving and riffy hardcore with Torche's alternating sugary sweetness/guitar thunder, features the melodic burner/title track "Mercy" available for download above. Reminds me a bit of Hull as well... multi-part vocal harmonies.

Currently, the Chicago band has no plans to make it out east, but will play a pair of dates with the great Young Widows: Friday (9/24) at Mulligans in Grand Rapids, Michigan and a hometown Record Release show on 10/8 at Beat Kitchen.
