Mercury Underground are a modern rock band, based in Glasgow, Scotland.
With influences in the band ranging wildly from classic and progressive rock to fusion, Mercury Underground aren't your typical rock band using this unique blend of influence to their advantage, creating their own take on the 'classic rock' sound.
In recent times Mercury Underground have been working their way up the ladder, relentlessly crafting their sound. To date, the band have played venues such as Camden Underworld in London, and the world famous venue King Tut's in Glasgow, along the way supporting such acts as Adrenaline Mob, Voodoo Six, Gun, Sick Puppies, Attica Rage and The Sword during their tour with Metallica. They also gained experience in playing European festivals after performing in front of thousands at the MEI Festival in Italy in 2009. Recently they were selected as one of 10 bands worldwide to play at Canada's biggest rock festival, D-TOX Rockfest 2012 and were nominated for a Los Angeles Music Award for Best Hard Rock Band and more recently a Scottish New Music Award for Loud/Metal Recording Of The Year.
On May 4th 2012, Mercury Underground released their new EP through license with Pop Pills/Emu Bands in Glasgow, which is being followed up with live shows to promote as well as licensing in the sports industries and more.
