Thy Art Is Murder: Ex-Schlagzeuger Lee Stanton spricht über seinen Ausstieg

Wir haben vollstes Verständnis.

VON AM 30/09/2019

Noch bevor die Promo-Maschinerie zum aktuellen Album „Human Target“ ins Rollen kam, wurde bekannt, dass Thy Art Is Murder und ihr bisheriger Schlagzeuger Lee Stanton getrennte Wege gehen würden.

Wirklich kommentiert hatte dieser seinen Ausstieg bislang aber noch nicht. Zumindest bis jetzt.

Über die Socials seiner ehemaligen Band meldete sich Stanton nun ausführlich zu Wort.

Wie es hier heißt, habe sich seine psychische und physische Verfassung im Laufe der Zeit zunehmend verschlechtert. Ein Split mit seinen vorherigen Aktivitäten sei so unumgänglich gewesen.

Auch wenn er wahnsinnig gerne wieder Shows mit Thy Art Is Murder spielen würde, sei es für ihn nur das Beste, sich auf seine Genesung zu konzentrieren.

Das komplette Statement könnt ihr euch jetzt weiter unten durchlesen. Seit April diesen Jahres ist Jesse Beahler nach diversen, vorangegangenen Fill-ins neuer, fester Drummer der Kombo.

Das offizielle Statement von Lee Stanto (Ex-Thy Art Is Murder)

A message from Lee:

G’day legends,

First off, I’d like to apologise for my absence in person and online as you may have noticed I haven’t been touring with TAIM for over a year now. Early last year I started noticing a shift in my state of mind which eventually resulted in me having a breakdown. As much as I would love to still be up there ripping gigs with the boys it is in my best interest mentally and physically to step back from everything and continue putting in work to get back to being 100%.

I can’t thank Sean, Kevin, Marshy & CJ enough for being extremely patient and very understanding during this whole process. My wife, family, friends & our fans who’ve reached out, checked in, gave me someone to speak to or offered advice and help, it really does mean a lot. It wasn’t easy coming to terms with what happened, and having to walk away from something you invested a large portion of your life into building, but I have lots of positives to take away with me.

I’ve built a lot of great relationships with people; I’ve been able to see the world & connect with people through music which couldn’t have happened if not for touring. I don’t want this to come across negative, I am in a much better headspace than before. I just wanted to let people know what’s been up and that if you do notice that something isn’t right within yourself or someone you know, don’t be afraid to have a conversation or to seek professional help.

Be honest & kinder to yourself & those around you, your body & mind will be grateful for it.
