Baltimore-based rock band, Have Mercy, released their newest song “Good Christian Man” along with a music video for the single.
The video, directed by Roland Bingaman, shows singer and guitarist Brian Swindle dealing with personal struggles and a lack of support from his peers. Swindle stands in front of a chapel as the congregation flash posters with messages on them saying he’s a disgrace, or that he doesn’t belong.
“They wrote me off, they wrote me a letter saying ‘You’re as good as gone,'” Swindle sings.
With lines like “It was always the plan, become a good Christian man, they can’t learn to respect my happiness,” the band shed light on a situation that is all too common now-a-days: not being on the same spiritual level as the people around you and being put down for your decisions.
The track is off Have Mercy’s upcoming album, Make The Best of It, which is set to release on April 21 through Hopeless Records.
Pre-orders for the album are available now. You can purchase a CD here.
Have Mercy will be on tour this summer with Real Friends, Tiny Moving Parts, Broadside and Nothing, Nowhere. To see them live, you can buy concert tickets here.
