The band will be taking a wrecking ball to the regions with Justice For The Damned & To The Grave.

Off the back of a triumphant Melbourne show earlier this year (check out our review here), Australia’s premier extreme metal merchants Thy Art Is Murder are set to cause absolute carnage across regional Australia with a huge tour later this year.

Kicking off in May, our lords of extreme metal will raze through venues across the eastern states with Justice For The Damned and To The Grave, hitting up venues in the likes of Newcastle, Canberra, Albury, Cairns, Townsville, Ballarat, Geelong and more.

After spending the best part of the past 12 months obliterating stages around the world, Thy Art Is Murder are an unrelenting touring beast primed to assault the regions with surgical precision.

The band started 2023 celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their landmark album, Hate, with their biggest and most explosive Australian tour yet. That flowed into a massive 26-date run in the US and the band are set to embark on the final European leg next month. By the time they arrive back on home soil, Thy Art will be firing missiles on all fronts.

In case you missed it, Thy Art unleashed their new song “Until There Is No Longer” on the weekend. The menacing monster of a single is lifted from The Aggression Sessions, a three-way split with their mates Fit For An Autopsy and Malevolence, out April 7 (Nuclear Blast).

The first taste of new music since 2020’s “Killing Season”, it should really whet your appetite for Thy Art’s sixth album, set to pulverize skulls in the coming months. Stay tuned.
