Thy Art Is Murder Frontman CJ McMahon Quits Band

(TeamRock Radio) Thy Art Is Murder frontman CJ McMahon has quit the band, saying he can't afford to continue being part of it. He joined the Australian outfit in 2009, replacing Brendan van Ryn, and appeared on all three of their albums to date.

Molotov Solution vocalist Nick Arthur will front the band on their upcoming European tour. McMahon says: "I spend too much time away from my fiancee, family and friends. Touring has taken a massive mental, emotional and physical toll on me.

"One of the biggest reasons is money, - we have been broke for years and I can't live like this any more. I'm getting married next year and plan on having a family, these things cost money. To put the finances into perspective, we have earned between $16k and $18k each over six or seven years. I feel there is something massively wrong with this - I will not live like this any more."

Saying that he plans to close down his clothing label and sell his stage gear to help pay for his wedding, he adds: "Thank you for the love and support." Read more here.
