To celebrate Record Store Day on the 24th November, Nuclear Blast Entertainment will be releasing ‘The Depression Sessions’ exclusively for the first time on CD. In the winter of 2015, three bands with a common outlook on the world came together to create this collective piece of work – each with their own unique stylistic approach to aggressive music. Those three bands were Thy Art Is Murder, The Acacia Strain and Fit For An Autopsy.
Previously only available digitally and on vinyl, the experience can now be yours to own, but hurry! The pressing will be limited to 2,000 copies worldwide! This limited CD (Digipak) edition will be available exclusively at your local indie record stores in the U.S. and Canada! To find your nearest one click here.
“After months of heavy touring, a cold NJ background set the tone for a dark, honest, and moody record. We gave some nods to the bands we grew up listening to and took some new risks in our own songs. More importantly, this record is a statement of community. We live in a very competitive and selfish world, and it this is proof it doesn’t have to be like that. It’s the friendships you make along the way, between the artists you share the stage with, that you’ll take away with you long after the shows are over. Support your peers; the whole music scene will be better for it. Thank you for listening.” – collective statement from the parties involved.
