Los australianos THY ART IS MURDER han anunciado vía facebook la salida del actual cantante Chris “CJ” McMahon. Aunque éste aún no se ha pronunciado, los cuatro integrantes del grupo han explicado en el comunicado que los motivos se deben a diferencias en sus vidas personales y a que CJ estaría pensando en hacer una familia con su prometida, y esto le sería incompatible con una banda.
A su vez, han querido aclarar que no cancelarán ninguno de sus conciertos previstos para principios de año, y que su ausencia será suplida por Nick Arthur, de MOLOTOV SOLUTION. Os dejamos con el comunicado oficial:
“After much conjecture and ambiguity on his behalf, it is with a heavy heart that we must announce today that CJ is no longer a part of Thy Art Is Murder. We have worked so hard from day one to make this band what it is now, and develop the reputation that we have and he had been there with us every step of the way. We like to think that even if someone doesn’t like our music that they can at least respect our work ethic. This band has taken us to places we never thought we would see and to share stages with many bands we never thought we would get to play with or meet, let alone call friends. It is unfortunate that with our best year to date and our biggest paved out before us that he has decided to leave.
The four of us are continuing forward into 2016 for some of the biggest and best tours of our lives. We won’t be slowing down or missing any shows. We head back out next month with Parkway Drive and Architects throughout Europe and the UK and will be taking one of our favourite vocalists with us, Nick Arthur from Molotov Solution. Thy Art is what we have done with all of our adult lives and we have put absolutely everything we have into the band and the friendship between the four of us. That friendship and drive to create extreme music is what has kept us together through thick and thin. Unfortunately not everyone can share this fire.
Andy, Kevin, Lee and Sean – Thy Art Is Murder”
