Formed from the ashes of Braid only months after the band’s well-documented final shows, Hey Mercedes provided a more melodic, accessible alternative to Braid’s aggressive interpretation of “emo,” winning over the hearts of fans both old and new. The band’s output during their five year existence was impressive, with three EPs and two full-length LPs released; and over 350 shows under their belt. The decade since the band’s premature 2005 breakup has brought them comparisons to Jimmy Eat World and The Get-Up Kids in terms of their influence on the emo-leaning, alt-rock sound of the late 90’s and early 2000s.
