Thy Art Is Murder’s new album Human Target is scheduled to arrive on July 26th via Nuclear Blast. Today (5th), the group have unleashed a music video for the third single “Make America Hate Again.” The clip was directed by Max Moore (Knocked Loose, Code Orange) as guitarist Andy Marsh commented:
“‘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.
The blood lust of the political spectator, armed with Fox, CNN and an iPhone, was satiated with aggressive slander filled debate and fake radicalized propaganda masquerading as news, where both sides of the field rallied to provoke. Identity politics spread like the wildfires of California, smoking out people of all creeds to be branded as red or blue.
Those on the regressive left may indeed have as much to answer for as their far right opponents for creating a heaving divide in the space of public discourse, and a sustaining sense of animosity among communities around America and abroad.
Polarizing leaders like Trump are, in part, a result of who we have become. Disconnected.”
