Fall is the post-punk inspired song is about trying to keep in control of your life, while things feel like they are falling apart around you. This high energy track has always been a favourite between the band members and is still relevant to them today. 


Mix two parts dirty rock with two parts sleaze punk and you get a four shot cocktail called The Mercy Kills featuring Mark E (Vox/Guitar), Jen X Costello (Bass/Vox), Nathalie Gellé (Guitar/Vox) and Josh Black (Drums).

Their tastes in music, the desire to write great songs and blast out a killer live show were the key factors shared by this four-piece outfit.  The Mercy Kills took their name from a line in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, "It was a mercy killing". 

"Take the energy from ‘Appetite for Destruction’ era Guns ‘N’ Roses, mix it with some Ramones style punk, a lot of energy and you have The Mercy Kills…”

"Their dramatic set included flaming drumsticks and power riffs, worthy of international rock stars".

"Should you happen across a flyer with The Mercy Kills written anywhere on it, make note of the date, and keep the night free”.
- SF Media (Melbourne)

"Big, brash, and bold were ‘The Mercy Kills. The band’s energy screeched like a rogue ‘68 Camaro right until the very end…"
