Thailand’s DEFYING DECAY return with a brand new song, their first in two years, with the aim of raising awareness about political corruption in their society.
Frontman Jay Euarchukiati explains: “Article 112 of Thailand’s criminal code the “Lèse-majesté” law states “Whoever, defames, insults or threatens the King, the Queen, the Heir-apparent or the Regent, shall be punished with imprisonment of three to fifteen years”. However, this law has been abused in recent years and a lot of people have gone missing, been found dead or mistreated like animals and we feel like it’s not really being talked about. In our opinion no one should EVER die from a difference political opinions. So for us to be able to release this song to the world to raise awareness really means a lot.”

DEFYING DECAY released their debut album “Metamorphosis” in May 2019 before making their UK live debut supporting Motionless In White in December 2019. They were set to return as special guests to BORN OF OSIRIS in March 2020, before the pandemic forced all shows to be cancelled. Now they return with music, and are currently on the road in the US with ATREYU and CROWN THE EMPIRE. Says Jay:
“We are feeling really excited to be coming to with a new single and being able to get out of Thailand and touring the world again. Music is what we do in everyday of our lives and we’ve been mostly doing nothing sitting back at home for the past 18 months. Coming back out touring again this time around, especially with Atreyu a band we’ve grown up listening to as a kid it’s just next level. If the situation keeps getting better hopefully by next year 2022 we’ll be coming back to the UK, as last time we were there touring with Motionless In White it was our favourite tour to date.”
