Mercy Drive is an American hard rock band featuring Jimmy McGlothlin on guitars and vocals, Jake Beard on guitars and Corey Lane on drums. Originally based out of Central Florida and best known for writing and performing entrance themes for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) wrestlers, most notably Maven Huffman ("Tattoo") and Randy Orton ("Burn In My Light"). Their captivating stage presence, “big” rock drums & guitars, along with each melodic, hook-laden chorus’ drives them further down the road of success.
The bands debut record was recorded in 2004 with producer Rick Beato (Shinedown, Vince Neil, Flickerstick, Working Title, Dark New Day, Crossfade) putting together an "in-your-face" blend of Modern Rock that complemented the band's dynamic live performances.
For about a year, Mercy Drive shared the stage with large and small acts such as American Hi-Fi, Soil, Seven Mary Three, Disturbed, Adema, Skrape, Buckcherry, Systematic, Drowning Pool, Stereomud, Staind & Jane’s Addiction in support of their debut record.
By 2005, several songs have been recorded as demos for their second record, However, around 2006, the band & it’s official website had disappeared, leading many fans to question the status of the band and the record.
Finally back in the studio after a much needed break, the guys of Mercy Drive couldn’t be more excited to have some new music hit your ears in 2017!
