Regulars of the Western Sydney hardcore/metal traps, five piece Thy Art Is Murder have found a new area of success in recent European travels – as many local heavy outfits do. On top of early demos, they have an EP Infinite Death and album The Adversary, while their forthcoming record was recorded with Will Putney – Lamb Of God, The Amity Affliction). They will release their new album in Spring this year.
Halfcut's roster also includes Gallows and While She Sleeps.
Chance Waters – formerly Phatchance – has been enjoying recent triple j airpaly with latest single Maybe Tomorrow, and Permanent will release his album later this year. Previous record Inkstains has already garnered Waters a level of notoriety in Australia, which he is looking to redevelop under the new moniker.
Editor's note: Correction made to indicate that Will Putney is producing Thy Art's upcoming record.
This week's new sets include the return of UK's Foals plus local acts Last Dinosaurs, The Snowdroppers and The Paper Kites.
