MERCY MUSIC Comes To Terms With Heartbreak On “Love you/Need you,” What You Stand To Lose Out June 30th via Double Helix Records/SBÄM Records
The title of their new album refers to the many monumental changes in Scholz’s personal life since it was “flipped upside down” between this album and their last (2020’s Nothing in the Dark), “What You Stand To Lose is about coming face to face with one of your worst fears, learning from the experience, and hoping you come out the other side a better person,” says Scholz.
