Thy Art Is Murder - “Human Target” Tour 2020 - Support: Carnifex, Fit For An Autopsy, Rivers Of Nihil, I Am
“When we had the opportunity to put together the line-up for our European Headline tour for ‘Human Target’ we were truly spoilt for choice,” says guitarist Andy Marsh. “Choosing a whole host of our friends, all sharing the same label, all with brand new releases, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to assemble one of the heaviest tours of the year. Time to smash!” “Europe, we’re back!” adds FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY’s Will Putney. “Always a pleasure to play overseas with our brothers in THY ART IS MURDER. Everyone’s bringing their new album in tow, this is gonna be a great run!”
‘Human Target’ is the title of the fifth studio album of the Australian Death Metal / Deathcore band THY ART IS MURDER, which was released worldwide via Nuclear Blast on 26 July 2019. The album features ten tracks with a total playing time of 38 minutes and 28 seconds. Three singles, ‘Human Target’, ‘Death Squad Anthem’ and ‘Make America Hate Again’, were released for the album. On the day of the album release the group released a fourth single with ‘New Gods’. It is the first album with Jesse Beahler on drums, who replaced the former drummer Lee Stanton. He retired from the group for private reasons, so drummer Jesse, who had stood in for Stanton from time to time in the past was the right man.
The songs on ‘Human Target’ are about oppression. Andy Marsh, who is responsible for the music and lyrics, said that the album is not entirely religious or politically motivated. The title song ‘Human Target’, for example, is about organ theft. Marsh’s wife had read articles that people were murdered in Chinese prisons and that their organs were then removed. The album title was chosen because according to Marsh organ theft is the biggest of all oppressions. Another play, however, deals with sexual assaults on women. THY ART IS MURDER have announced a huge UK and European tour for the start of 2020.
Joined by fellow Deathcore merchants CARNIFEX, FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY, RIVERS OF NIHIL and I AM, THY ART IS MURDER’s “Human Target Tour” kicks off in Belgium on January 25 and climaxes in Germany almost a month later on February 23.
