Baltimore emo band Have Mercy sadly lost founding drummer Aaron Alt, who passed away at age 29, just months before releasing their fourth album The Love Life, and they're now saying goodbye after one last tour. "This is it. I'm almost in tears writing this but it's time," the band writes on Facebook. "I never thought I'd see the day but it's time to say goodbye. It's been almost 10 years. We've seen life and we've seen death. We've felt on top of the world and we've been in the gutter. Please join us on this last and final run with Selfish Things, Fredo Disco, and Young Culture." All dates here.
More tour dates are presumably TBA, but rising singer/rapper Rod Wave has begun announcing shows for 2020.
HEART BONES (HAR MAR SUPERSTAR & SABRINA ELLIS)
Heart Bones, the duo of Har Mar Superstar and Sabrina Ellis (A Giant Dog), will release their debut album, Hot Dish, on February 21. They'll be on tour, too, beginning appropriately on Valentines Day in St. Paul, with dates running through April and hitting most major U.S. cities.
