We love us some Ben Harper, and it’s been fun keeping an eye out for new projects he’s involved in. So when our good man Sami from RockItOutBlog tweeted a link to a new Harper project in the works called Fistful Of Mercy, we were on it like… well, like goddamn nerds on Twitter.
Have a first taste of Fistful Of Mercy, by Fistful Of Mercy:
The band consists of Harper, Dhani Harrison (Beatle George’s son) and obscure alt-rocker Joseph Arthur. Their MySpace page bio still has standard Latin-fill text, but the band is slated to release an album Oct. 5 and hit the road shortly thereafter.
Check out the band’s performance of Restore Me on KRCW.
