Leeds/Wakefield band Mercia Drift will release their debut single, ‘Take Your Own Road’, on 24th July 2009. The band will launch the release at The Elbow Room in Leeds on this night.

Produced by James Kenosha (Grammatics, Duels, The Hair), the release offers the first taste of the band’s forthcoming debut album ‘The Time Is Now’.

Comparable to the likes of Editors, The Verve and Coldplay, Mercia Drift are now looking to establish themselves as a top live act across the country and have many exciting things planned for the rest of the year, including a national tour along with more releases to come.
