Inspired and influenced by a variety of bands like Three Days Grace, Deftones, and Slipknot, Nine Shrines are a group of Ohio rocker vets featuring former members of Attack Attack! (Rise Records), Life on Repeat (Equal Vision Records), and Starset (Razor & Tie).
“’King of Mercy’ is for people that have been walked on their whole lives,” explains drummer Andrew Wetzel. “We’ve all had a time when we felt like our sole purpose was to bend over backwards so everyone around us could get what they want. This is a very personal song for us. Some people don’t deserve forgiveness and this is the anthem of our retribution.”
Fans can pre-order the new EP HERE, which also comes with an instant download of the new single “King of Mercy.” For more information on Nine Shrines, be sure to follow the band on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
