Thy Art Is Murder signs with Nuclear Blast Ent.
Official press release: Australia's hottest new extreme metal export, Thy Art Is Murder, has signed to Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Their second album, Hate, was recently released in their homeland where it has been smashing boundaries once thought to confine bands of their ilk. The record came in at #35 on the Top 40 Aria chart, making it the highest debut of any Aussie death metal band ever! Nuclear Blast Entertainment is proud to finally properly release Hate in the U.S. on April 2nd and in Europe on April 5th. The album was produced and mixed by Will Putney (Suicide Silence, Born of Osiris, For Today) with artwork created by Brent Elliot White (Carnifex, Death Angel). "Nuclear Blast has always represented the pinnacle of extreme metal, a last bastion in an ever evolving industry," commented guitarist Andy Marsh. "To say we now share a label with the greatest extreme metal bands of all time is ridiculous. It was never a dream, it was impossible. But we've done it. The future will be heavy."
