Thy Art Is Murder will be back on home soil shortly to destroy all the venues they’ve been neglecting (and some new ones too) while they’ve been on the frontline spreading ‘Holy War‘ to far-flung corners of the world during the Coffin Dragger Tour.
A new string of Australian tour dates which will also feature Graves and I, Valiance have just been announced for July / August.
Joining Thy Art Is Murder on vocals will be Lochan Watt. Watt’s pipes endured a vigorous initiation during the US leg of the Coffin Dragger tour which took in 39-dates around the country.
“This is the third iteration of the coffin dragger. The idea being to drag death around the world to places we’ve never been before. The US leg saw us go to many states we’d never seen before, Europe we are going as Far East as Transylvania and now the Australian leg will see us play a whole bunch of regional towns, some we’ve never done, and others we’ve neglected for quite some time.“
Thy Art Is Murder’s most recent album, ‘Holy War‘, debuted at #7 on the ARIA Chart – the highest ever position for an extreme metal act – a feat they’ve scored twice. Always stoking controversy and criticism, the band refuse to tone down their art for the sake of palatability which has seen ‘Holy War‘ generate a wave of controversy for the strong anti-religious stance of the title track’s video, as well as the album cover which features references to a suicide bomber.
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday. Dates and venues below.
