Thy Art Is Murder tease brand new track

Thy Art Is Murder have shared a short clip of a brand new track.

The video appeared across the band's social media channels, with the Australian outfit saying that the song will be released this Friday as a 7-inch single. Check out the clip below. 

A caption on the release reads: "Bring forth the lamb of the sacrifice."

It’ll be the band’s first material since their 2017 album Dear Desolation which launched last year and featured returning vocalist CJ McMahon who initially quit the band in 2015.

Following the launch, the band will return to the UK and Europe for a run of shows which will take place throughout January and February.

Thy Art Is Murder have also been confirmed to play the Download Australia festivals in Sydney and Melbourne in March and will take to the stage at Wacken Open Air in August 2019.
