Thy Art Is Murder Premiere New Song “Killing Season”

Thy Art Is Murder have premiered a new song titled “Killing Season.” Guitarist Andy Marsh commented:

“‘Killing Season‘ is a crushing old school sounding Thy Art track that we put together towards the end of 2019, to be used somewhere in 2020 for a release or tour promo. We wanted to release it now as a gift to our fans who have supported us throughout this year by continuing to listen to our music, buying merch, or simply sending us messages of support. It means the world to us! ‘Killing Season’‘ touches on the darkness surrounding the origins of Thanksgiving, and while that subject is relevant at this time of year, we want you to think of the atrocities both past and present that deserve acknowledgment.”

Thy Art Is Murder Cancel North American Tour With Fit For An Autopsy, Enterprise Earth, Etc.

Thy Art Is Murder have cancelled their headlining North American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek, which was also set to feature Fit For An Autopsy, Enterprise Earth, Aversions Crown, Une Misère and Extinction A.D., was supposed to kickoff yesterday (March 12).

Thy Art Is Murder commented:

“North America:

We are very saddened to bring the news to you today that this leg of the Human Target tour is cancelled, effective immediately.

We will keep you up to speed with future plans as more information becomes available, but given the sudden circumstances it may be some time before we can begin to make a financial recovery and commit to extensive touring options.

All of your favorite bands, now more than ever, need your support. The best and fastest way you can do this is by picking up a shirt from one of their online stores. These sorts of funds are the ones that pass through to a band the fastest and will help to keep them going through this down season, a roof over their family, and food in their children’s mouths.

We understand this infectious plague is spreading rapidly and negatively affecting more of us each and every day. We encourage all of you to look after yourselves properly, maintain hygienic practices and social distances, and pay attention to all governing and medical advisories.

We’re so sorry, we feel like we’ve let you all down but there’s nothing more we can do.

All our love, TAIM 🖤”

Despite this, the band are planning to move forward with their European tour in June:

Thy Art Is Murder Officially Welcome Drummer Jesse Beahler To The Band

Thy Art Is Murder have officially welcomed drummer Jesse Beahler (ex-Jungle Rot, etc.) to the band. He will be replacing Lee Stanton, who exited the group last year.

Beahler commented:

“I’ve been long time friends with Thy Art Is Murder, from touring beside them on their first American tour in 2013, to becoming a contributing member of the band during ‘The Depression Sessions’, and eventually evolving into a full fledged member during the writing and recording process of our latest album, ‘Human Target’. I’m very grateful to be working alongside great friends and musicians, and feel like THY ART is a band I was always meant to be a part of.

I am incredibly proud of the performances we tracked on our newest album ‘Human Target’, and it sounds so good in part because of the great gear we selected. Thanks to Zildjian, Tama, Remo, Vic Firth, Czarcie Kopyto, and Foot Blaster Triggers for creating exceptional tools that help me deliver the best possible performance every time I sit behind the kit.”

Thy Art Is Murder Drummer Lee Stanton Reveals That He Stepped Away From The Band Due To Mental Health Issues

Thy Art Is Murder’s Lee Stanton has offered an explanation for his recent absence from the band. The drummer issued a statement saying he stepped away to deal with mental health issues.

Stanton said the following:

“G’day legends,

First off, I’d like to apologise for my absence in person and online as you may have noticed I haven’t been touring with TAIM for over a year now. Early last year I started noticing a shift in my state of mind which eventually resulted in me having a breakdown. As much as I would love to still be up there ripping gigs with the boys it is in my best interest mentally and physically to step back from everything and continue putting in work to get back to being 100%.

I can’t thank Sean, Kevin, Marshy & CJ enough for being extremely patient and very understanding during this whole process. My wife, family, friends & our fans who’ve reached out, checked in, gave me someone to speak to or offered advice and help, it really does mean a lot. It wasn’t easy coming to terms with what happened, and having to walk away from something you invested a large portion of your life into building, but I have lots of positives to take away with me.

I’ve built a lot of great relationships with people; I’ve been able to see the world & connect with people through music which couldn’t have happened if not for touring. I don’t want this to come across negative, I am in a much better headspace than before. I just wanted to let people know what’s been up and that if you do notice that something isn’t right within yourself or someone you know, don’t be afraid to have a conversation or to seek professional help.

Be honest & kinder to yourself & those around you, your body & mind will be grateful for it.

– Lee Stanton“

Thy Art Is Murder Premiere “New Gods” Video

Thy Art Is Murder have premiered a new video for their new song “New Gods.” This track is from the band’s new album “Human Target,“ which will be released tomorrow (July 26).

Andy Marsh commented:

“‘New Gods‘ is interwoven in theme with the song ‘Chemical Christ‘, discussing the idea of mental health and modern inventions’ intervention with a natural state of consciousness. The idea that social media is one of the major driving forces of increasing levels of depression in the western world was fascinating to us, and we thought what better way to use the platform ironically to discuss these ideas than by using an aspect ratio designed specifically for it.

We hope you watch the clip and then put your phone down, life is better through the eye of the beholder than the lens of an algorithm.”
