A hard rock band whose sound encompasses '90s alternative rock, metal, and a dash of roots rock, Bootleg Mercy is a quartet from Kansas with a tough, moody, and impassioned feel. Rooted in dark, growling, guitar-based tunes with muscular, midtempo rhythms, Bootleg Mercy cut their teeth as a cover band before they started writing their own material that reflected their influences in full-bodied rock.
Bootleg Mercy made their recording debut with a five-song EP in 2014, Pictures, while a revamped lineup of the group brought out a new single in 2020, "The Trees are Listening." In 2022, they followed that up with another EP, World On Fire, which garnered the band several award nominations including Best International Rock Band, Best New Artist, Best Lyric Video, and a Josie nomination for Rock Single of the Year. Their music continues to receive accolades both in the US and abroad holding the #1 spot in the LA-based Indie Star Radio’s Top 21 for four straight weeks and a feature in ERB Magazine (UK). #discovermusic #indieartist #indierockSpotify Band Page
