It’s been 12 years since Thirsty Merc burst onto the Australian music landscape delivering a swag of classic, radio staples like 20 Good Reasons, Someday Someday, Mousetrap Heart and In The Summertime along the way.
Fast forward to 2015 and Thirsty Merc are still excited to be making music, but all things must change and after selling over 200,000 records with Warner Music, this time around the band are tackling the recording and release of their fourth studio album, and first new material in five years, independently, and very differently.

Following songwriting sessions in Sydney, Melbourne, and Los Angeles, the band were ready to get back into the studio and to help realise their vision they utilised crowdfunding platform PledgeMusic, to help get the record recorded and mixed and the response has been overwhelming. In fact, the band reached its goal within 48 hours of the campaign.

With the recording now complete, with production by long time collaborator, Lindsay Gravina (The Living End, Kate Miller Heidke, Roland S Howard), Thirsty Merc have booked Grammy nominated Emily Lazar (Foo Fighters, David Bowie, Sia and The Killers) to master the record in New York ahead of its Australian release on 14 August.

Ahead of the first single from the album, The Good Life, going to radio on 31 July, Thirsty Merc have announced a new national tour which takes in all mainland states and territories.
