In December of 2015, three bands with three different stylistic approaches to aggressive music, but a common outlook on the world, came together to create a collective piece of work — "The Depression Sessions". Those three bands were THY ART IS MURDER, THE ACACIA STRAIN and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY and on August 12, Nuclear Blast Entertainment will release the results of this experience both digitally and on limited edition vinyl.
THE ACACIA STRAIN recently made the track "Sensory Deprivation" available for download on all major digital music platforms. Receive the song, along with "They Will Know Another" by THY ART IS MURDER, as an instant download now when you pre-order the album digitally via iTunes and Amazon.
"An opportunity presented itself by way of two bands doing a split as friends," states THE ACACIA STRAIN vocalist Vincent Bennett. "We kinda forced our way onto it and took over. We had three months to write a song. We waited until the last minute to actually write it while we were on tour. Sometimes we work better under pressure".
Check out this lyric video for the first single "They Will Know Another" by THY ART IS MURDER below. The song, as well as their cover of RAMMSTEIN's "Du Hast", are the last pieces of music the band recorded before the departure of vocalist of CJ McMahon.
"The Depression Sessions" was produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Will Putney. All the bands tracked in December 2015 at Graphic Nature Audio in Belleville, New Jersey. Cover art was created by Dan Bradley with a layout by Forefathers.
