See: Thy Art is Murder reveal new video for Make America Hate Again

Australian deathcore kings Thy Art Is Murder have released a music video for their latest single Make America Hate Again. Fittingly, the song dropped on 4th of July; as America celebrated its independence, the band chose to broadcast their view of America’s political climate through this ferocious, politically driven new offering. The video is a colourful cacophony of red, white and blue; a distinct contrast with the band’s usual dark and gloomy approach.

Guitarist Andy Marsh released a comment along with the song:

‘Whilst we collectively identify as a left-leaning band, this song was not written to attack those who sit on the right side of the political sphere, but as a commentary on the tactics employed by both campaigns in the most recent US presidential election. These crusades of social warfare would surely succeed in one result regardless of the victor, making people hate one another.’

In 2015 Thy Art Is Murder gave us the album Holy War; the artwork of which featured a child in a suicide vest. Given this and judging by the three tracks we’ve now heard from Human Target, we can expect more outspoken and close to the bone content when it is released. Human Target will be out on July 26th via Nuclear Blast and Human Warfare.
