Appearing on today is the news that Ben has formed a new (some are saying "super")group with Joseph Arthur and Dhani Harrison, called Fistful of Mercy.

You can check out their debut song and video here

Those of you very familiar with Ben Harper (and avid tape traders) probably have recordings of Ben and Joseph playing together, most notably on Joseph's song "In the Sun."

Dhani Harrison is son of late-Beatle George Harrison.

The debut album by Fistful of Mercy is set to be released on October 5th, followed by a tour. I have no idea where this leaves R7 or their follow-up album due in the spring of 2011. I'll post any information I can find as it comes in.

According to this, Fistful of Mercy will be playing their first show tomorrow (Aug. 26):

"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.

Hit up tomorrow at 2 PM Eastern for more details on Fistful Of Mercy, as well as the band’s first radio performance."
