Who knew they were even recording? Anyway, here's what you need to know about Aussie metallers Thy Art Is Murder's third album.
1. It's called 'Holy War'
2. It's coming in June
June 29 to be exact, through Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
3. The album was produced by Will Putney
Who's worked with Suicide Silence and Northlane. Big.
4. They recorded the album in secret
Guitarist Andy Marsh reveals all: “Finally the cat is out of the bag! Late last year, we entered the studio in secret to create our follow up to Hate, free of expectation and public pressure."
5. 'Holy War' is their reaction to the state of the world "What we came out with was a reaction to things going on around the world that crawl under our skin, that make us feel sick to be alive," Andy continues."This is our war on racism, homophobia, child abuse, animal cruelty and all evil born of religious immunity, indoctrination, and ignorance."
