Comments Off on Mercutio – Announce Debut Album “Antagonist” On 4th June

UK based alt rock trio Mercutio are pleased to announce the release of their debut UK album, “Antagonist”, on the 4th June 2021. The band can also announce themselves as main support on Inglorious UK headline tour in Sept/Oct 2021.

Following the critical and commercially acclaimed release of previous single “Slap Bang” in July 2020 (see the video for “Slap Bang” HERE) below. and second single “Playtime” in November 2020 (video for “Playtime” is HERE), the band released an EP in January 2021. Although Covid has meant the band can’t support these releases with live dates, it has meant they have been able to finalise their debut album.

“Antagonist” is a stunning collection of rock songs – instantly memorable melodies underpinned by driving rhythms. From the hammer blow riffs of album opener “Where The Pain Lives” to the brooding “C Word”, from the epic, histrionic “Alex” to sleazy groove of album closer “Revolution Station”, “Antagonist” marks Mercutio as one of the most exciting new rocks acts of 2021.

  1. Where The Pain Lives
  2. Playtime
  3. Chaos In King
  4. Alex
  5. Slap Bang
