Make The Best Of It (Hopeless Records) secured the #2 spot for Alternative New Artist Albums, #3 for Top New Artist Albums, #8 for Record Label Independent Current Albums and #15 on the Top Current Rock Albums. The album has also been praised by outlets like CLRVYNT, Alternative Press, The Noise, Stitched Sound, Soundfiction and more.
About to wrap up a nationwide tour with Real Friends, Swindle is looking forward to getting back on the road and giving fans a new way to experience Have Mercy. On the tour, Swindle says, "I always love seeing bands in a more intimate setting. Have Mercy has never done a lot of acoustic gigs so doing these string of shows will give fans a different feel for the songs. Maybe look at them in a different light. I can't wait to get on the road with Chase and perform for fans. It's going to be good." Hitting all his favorite cities, he is bringing out Chase Huglin to support. Chase's album is out now on InVogue Records and available at https://chasehuglin.bandcamp.com/.
Swindle is no stranger to performing with just his acoustic guitar. He released acoustic videos for singles off the last record including Coexist and Good Christian Man. Additionally, Have Mercy performed acoustic sessions at record stores Looney Tunes, Sound Garden and Vintage Vinyl earlier this Spring.
