Thy Art Is Murder Announced As Support For Meshuggah’s Australian Tour

Thy Art Is Murder

If you’re anything like us, you probably saw that Meshuggah were embarking on an Australian tour next March and thought, “Yeah, nah, that’s pretty heavy, hey?” Well, fucking brace yourselves, because that shred-fest just got a whole lot heavier.

Sydney deathcore deviants Thy Art Is Murder have been announced as the tour’s direct support, laying waste to unworthy punters on all dates of the run except, of course, Perth. Sorry, mates.

The tour will run through Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth from March 11th thru 17th, Meshuggah bringing their new opus, The Violent Sleep Of Reason, to some of the country’s most impressive venues.

As for Thy Art, the frontman-less quartet recently teamed up with The Acacia Strain and Fit For An Autopsy to drop their collaborative EP, The Depression Sessions – the release features CJ McMahon‘s last track fronting the band, “They Will Know Another”. Since McMahon’s departure last December, the band have toured with Colossvs mic-slinger Lochlan Watt.

It hasn’t been announced yet if Watt will take the mic for this run of dates, but a recent Instagram post indicates that if the offer is made, he’ll probably take it for no more than a single HSP.

On the topic of Meshuggah’s return to Australia, drummer Tomas Haake says punters can expect to see “something that they don’t really hear in any other bands.”

“We’re not trying to write your average metal song. We’re not trying to write catchy songs. We’re not trying to write hit songs. We’re just trying to write something that is cool, that we haven’t heard before, and hopefully our fans haven’t heard before.”
