Watch Have Mercy’s Brian Swindle Perform “Two Years” Acoustic

Have Mercy recently released their fantastic new record A Place of Our Own via Hopeless Records, and have been releasing live acoustic versions of some fan favorite tracks. We’re already seen “Pawn Takes Rook,” and now frontman Brian Swindle is back with an acoustic rendition of “Two Years.”
