Earlier this year, Australian deathcore outfit Thy Art Is Murder returned to the fold with a ferocious punch in the form of their fourth record, ‘Dear Desolation’, and with it, they helped to maintain their formidable reputation in the scene that they reside.
Along with granting them the next step forwards in the gaggle of their genre contemporaries, especially following the implosion that Suicide Silence created in their self-titled record, ‘Dear Desolation’ also acted as a signal that following the past couple of years of turbulence from vocalist CJ McMahon‘s exit and return to the outfit, they remain stable, focused, and vibrant.
Whilst at the Manchester date of their tour across the UK, we sat down with guitarist Andy Marsh to talk about the new record, if he felt they managed to “Make Deathcore Great Again”, their apprehensions surrounding CJ‘s return, their plans to continue with Nick Arthur (Molotov Solution) as their vocalist had he not, confirmation that they’ve began piecing together plans for a split EP to follow-up ‘The Depression Sessions’, and more.

The band’s new album, ‘Dear Desolation’, is out now through Nuclear Blast Records.
