A new documentary has been released featuring behind-the-scenes access to the making of the Depression Sessions. The record is a split between Fit For An Autopsy featuring Pat Sheridan and Tim Howley (formerly of The World We Knew), and The Acacia Strain featuring Vincent Bennett, Devin Shidaker, and Griffin Landa (formerly of Too Pure To Die). Also on the record is Thy Art Is Murder. Watch the documentary below.
From Nuclear Blast Records:
In December of 2015, three bands with three different stylistic approaches to aggressive music, but a common outlook on the world, came together to create a collective piece of work – The Depression Sessions. Those three bands were THY ART IS MURDER, THE ACACIA STRAIN and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY and on August 12, Nuclear Blast Entertainment will release the results of this experience both digitally and on limited edition vinyl.
In regards to this achievement, the parties involved have released the following collective statement:
“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.”
Documentary Directed by Bobby Bates. Original Score by The Chaplin. The Depression Sessions was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio. Cover art was created by Dan Bradley with a layout by Forefathers. The record is available now through Nuclear Blast Records.
