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.”

Thy Art Is Murder Premiere “Make America Hate Again” Video

Thy Art Is Murder have premiered a new video for their new song “Make America Hate Again.” This track is from the band’s new album “Human Target,“ which will be released on July 26.

Andy Marsh commented:

“Whilst we collectively identify as a left leaning band, this song was not written to attack those who sit on the right side of the political sphere, but as a commentary on the tactics employed by both campaigns in the most recent US presidential election. These crusades of social warfare would surely succeed in one result regardless of the victor, making people hate one another.

The blood lust of the political spectator, armed with Fox, CNN and an iPhone, was satiated with aggressive slander filled debate and fake radicalized propaganda masquerading as news, where both sides of the field rallied to provoke. Identity politics spread like the wildfires of California, smoking out people of all creeds to be branded as red or blue.

Those on the regressive left may indeed have as much to answer for as their far right opponents for creating a heaving divide in the space of public discourse, and a sustaining sense of animosity among communities around America and abroad.

Polarizing leaders like Trump are, in part, a result of who we have become. Disconnected.”

Thy Art Is Murder Premiere “Death Squad Anthem” Video

Thy Art Is Murder have premiered a new video for their new song “Death Squad Anthem.” This track is from the band’s new album “Human Target,“ which will be released on July 26. The following was said about the song:

“‘Death Squad Anthem‘ is a blazing examination of the current state of politics riddled with hyperactive virtue signalling, extremism and disenfranchisement. The despondency of ‘Death Squad Anthem‘ is brought to life with stark socio-political traumatic scenes of warfare, genocide, police states, brutality famine and riots interspersed with those at the helm of the atrocities.”
