THY ART IS MURDER, THE ACACIA STRAIN and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY have teamed together and will release The Depression Sessions later this year!
Last December, THY ART IS MURDER, THE ACACIA STRAIN and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY teamed up to creative a collective piece of work entitled The Depression Sessions, a split showcasing their varying styles and collective outlook on the world.
The Depression Sessions was produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Will Putney. All the bands tracked in December 2015 at Graphic Nature Audio in Belleville, NJ. The cover art was created by Dan Bradley with a layout by Forefathers.
You can listen to the first single taken from the project, They Will Know Another by THY ART IS MURDER here:
The song, as well as their cover of RAMMSTEIN‘s Du Hast, are the last pieces of music the band recorded before the departure of vocalist of CJ McMahon.
The parties involved with the release have said the following:
“After months of heavy touring, a cold NJ background set the tone for a dark, honest, and moody record. We gave some nods to the bands we grew up listening to and took some new risks in our own songs. More importantly, this record is a statement of community. We live in a very competitive and selfish world, and this is proof it doesn’t have to be like that. It’s the friendships you make along the way, between the artists you share the stage with, that you’ll take away with you long after the shows are over. Support your peers; the whole music scene will be better for it. Thank you for listening.”
