THY ART IS MURDER Vocalist Leaves Tour Early To Become A Father
Thy Art Is Murder is currently on tour with Architects and While She Sleeps, though they're going to be wrapping it up without vocalist CJ McMahon.
In a statement from the band, they reveal McMahon is headed home to become a father after the band's May 15 show in Philadelphia, PA. Thy Art Is Murder will finish the tour out with Molotov Solution vocalist Nick Arthur.
“Bad news first: tomorrow nights Philly show will be CJ’s last show with us for our current tour with Architects.
Now for the good news: HIS BABY IS ON THE WAY!
We had all hoped he would be able to finish the last week of the tour with us but he has to make it home now as the docs have said that the baby could come as early as next week. We wish him and his wife all the best and cannot wait to meet the little prince of darkness.
Further to this, as master planners for all contingencies, we reached out ahead of time to our old friend Nicholas Arthur (Molotov Solution) to see if he would be prepared to step in for CJ should the pregnancy speed up, and he will gladly be filling in for the remaining dates. We would like to extend our immense gratitude and love to him for helping us and CJ out for the next week of shows.
We understand that this may upset some of you, but family comes first and we hope you can send all your best wishes and love to CJ and his family in these exciting (albeit nervous) times.
Thank you all for your support, we are sure you won’t be disappointed in these special shows with Nicholas Arthur.”
