Punknews Exclusive: Planes Mistaken for Stars to tour, reissue 'Mercy''

This morning, after months of mysterious postings, post-hardcore titans Planes Mistaken for Stars have announced that they are going to reissue 2006's Mercy LP. Punknews is also excited to debut a new video about the band and the reissue. The video is called We Do As We Must, Together… and is described as a "testimonial" about the band and the re-release of the Mercy album. In the micro-film, Ryan Patterson of Coliseum, Nate Newton of Converge and Jeremy Bolm of Touché Amoré, talk about the influence and importance of the band. There are also snippets of some remastered Mercy tracks.

Mercy will be re-released by Deathwish Inc. on July 14, 2015. The new version has revamped packaging and was remastered from the original 1/2” tapes by Brad Boatwright at Audiosiege. To support the release, the band is also kicking off a tour in July. You can see the short film and live dates below.
