2010年成军以来，乐队陆续登上迷笛、草莓、日本SUMMER SONIC等大型音乐节的舞台。此外乐队不断尝试新的演出方式和跨界合作，不但筹办摇滚实验舞台剧《迷途》，并大胆的将话剧与摇滚结合的演出形式带入livehouse，更在艺仓美术馆完成摇滚装置演出“SHADOW BOX”。
Every era has its tragedy. Mercy and Sorrow is the one who sing the praises of this tragedy. Perhaps what we can do is only to “sing”. That’s what we mean – to show mercy with sorrow.
The band is characterized with appealing lyrics and deep thoughts. It has two singers, combining both monologue and melody. The band’s styles include death folk, post-rock, psychedelic rock, gothic, as well as traditional rock music. The combination of different music elements brings the audience brand-new feelings.
The band was founded in 2010 in Shanghai, China. Mercy and Sorrow was exposed to a bigger audience in 2012 MIDI Music Festival. In August 2012, Mercy and Sorrow finally took to the stage at Summer Sonic Music Festival in Tokyo, the largest urban rock festival in Asia.
Mercy and Sorrow insists on independent rock music in an era of tragedy.
