Two years on from delivering their No One Deserves Happiness LP, the Body have lifted the curtain on a follow-up effort.
Titled I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer, the experimental sludge duo will deliver the record on May 11 through Thrill Jockey.
Ten tracks in length, the effort is described as the group’s most ambitious work to date, choosing to build the songs around their own samples rather than recording and processing tracks drums and guitars.
Ahead time, the duo Lee Buford and Chip King have shared “Nothing Stirs” as a taste what’s to come. You can hear it in the player below.
I Have Fought Against It features performances from Kristin Hayter (Lingua Ignota) and Michael Berdan (Uniform), in addition to regular Body collaborators Chrissy Wolpert (Assembly Light Choir) and Ben Eberle (Sandworm).
