Australian deathcore act Thy Art Is Murder have announced plans for their latest record Human Target.

To go along with the album announcement, the band have released a blood-soaked video for the title track filled.

Guitarist Andy Marsh says “Human Target” was the last song written and sets the pace for the entire record.

“Human organ harvesting had been brought to my attention as a serious matter that wasn’t receiving much coverage – or not enough for me to hear about it – and I thought the issue required more scrutiny and awareness. To distill the metaphors of proletariat subjugation down to the visceral injustice of taking away the engines of life, seemed to be a powerful atmosphere to open the record.”

Take a look at the album art and tracklist below.
