Hand Of Mercy Part Ways With Singer Scott Bird

Written by Greg Moskovitch on March 11, 2014

Sydney-based hardcore outfit Hand Of Mercy have taken to their official Facebook page to announce that the band have parted ways with frontman Scott Bird, assuring fans that there is “no bad blood” between Bird and the rest of the band and that further updates are forthcoming.

“It is with a heavy heart that we unfortunately tell you we have had to part ways with our singer and friend Scott Bird,” opens a missive on the band’s Facebook page, which at the time of publication has amassed over 400 likes, multiple shares, and a raft of comments from disappointed fans.

“This is not a decision that was made lightly, there is no bad blood and sometimes life takes you down different roads, Hand Of Mercy just didn’t happen to be on Scotts [sic] path. We wish him the best of luck with all his future endeavors and thank him for all the times we have shared with him.”

“Change can be scary but it can also be very exciting and we are really excited about everything we have coming up,” they conclude, before telling fans they will “see you in the pit.” Fellow Warped Tour Australia band New Found Glory announced the departure of their guitarist in December.
