“Sounds like a rave in a collapsing black hole.” – Metal Hammer

“…who the hell else sounds like The Body? No one.” – Noisey

“Brutal and beautiful… everyone from The Haxan Cloak to The Bug wants to cut a record with these creeps.” – Bandcamp

“The Body’s chameleon adaptations reveal layers of their talent.”
– New Noise

“A riot of sound so aggressive it would make John Zorn blush” –Pitchfork

On May 11th, 2018, The Body will release their most ambitious album to date, I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer. On their follow up to 2016’s acclaimed No One Deserves Happiness, the Portland duo of Lee Buford and Chip King conjure the sublime from the unexpected by turning their compositional approach on its head, choosing to build the record on their own samples rather than recoding the basic tracks of drums and guitars and processing those.

The album features regular The Body collaborators Chrissy Wolpert (Assembly of Light Choir) and Ben Eberle (Sandworm), and longtime engineers Seth Manchester and Keith Souza (Machines With Magnets), as well as guest performances by Kristin Hayter(Lingua Ignota), and Michael Berdan (Uniform).

The Body will be touring Europe this spring with Lightning Bolt including a collaborative set with Thou at Roadburn, and plan to tour throughout the U.S. this summer.
