Returned Thy Art Is Murder frontman CJ McMahon has released an emotional statement to fans via Instagram.
"You made me a rockstar, you made me a God, you made me immortal, I owe my fans everything," he wrote. "I made myself a drug addict, I made myself a liar, I made myself lose and destroy friendships, I made my family and friends hurt."
"I come back to the world a new man whom with my closest friends ( Thy Art Is Murder ) will prove that we are the greatest, strongest, and most powerful force in Metal, I will take no prisoners, we will crush all charts and expectations."
"We will take over the game and raise the bar so no one will touch it or us. I am Cj McMahon and I will stand as a King with my brothers for the rest of time."
