At the end of last year, Thy Art Is Murder, The Acacia Strain and Fit For An Autopsy recorded an EP together.
The three bands contributed one new song and one cover each, which they will collectively release on August 12 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
'The Depression Sessions' was recorded before the departure of TAIM's former vocalist CJ McMahon and contains the following songs...
1. Thy Art Is Murder - They Will Know Another 2. The Acacia Strain - Sensory Deprivation 3. Fit For An Autopsy - Flatlining 4. Thy Art Is Murder - Du Hast (Rammstein cover) 5. The Acacia Strain - Black Hole Sun (Soundgarden cover) 6. Fit For An Autopsy - The Perfect Drug (Nine Inch Nails cover)
You can hear 'They Will Know Another', the first single from the joint effort, below.
"After months of heavy touring, a cold NJ background set the tone for a dark, honest, and moody record," the bands said.
"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."
Oh, and the EP's artwork looks like this.
Thy Art Is Murder are set to appear on the Never Say Die! Tour with Whitechapel, Carnifex and more later this year.
