Australien's Nummer 1-Export in Sachen Extreme Metal, THY ART IS MURDER, haben angekündigt, noch dieses Jahr ihr viertes Album mit dem Titel »Dear Desolation« zu veröffentlichen. Gitarrist Andy Marsh erklärt den Albumtitel wie folgt: "»Dear Desolation« was the easiest way to sum up the new record, and some of the issues we talked about. With lyrics ranging from extinction level events, to mortality’s interaction with morality, »Dear Desolation« seemed like an appropriate address toward nothingness, a call into the abyss from which we might not hear an answer." Die Band kündigt heute zusätzlich die korrelierende Headliner-Tour für den Herbst 2017 an. Die Tour started am 29. September in München. Die Band kommentiert: "We are super stoked to return to Europe, and this time with more UK dates than we have played in a very long time. For too long we have neglected the UK and we are going to make up for it in style. Joining us on our album headlining tour will be our great friends and ridiculously heavy bands, AFTER THE BURIAL, OCEANO, and Australian blackened hardcore juggernauts JUSTICE FOR THE DAMNED. We can’t wait to bring our new record to the road, and this will mark the very first leg of the »Dear Desolation« world tour."
