The Body touring Europe this spring, and embarking on extensive North American tour this summer with Lingua Ignota

The Body’s I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer
is out May 11th

“Nothing Stirs” sees the band set weeping strings and swelling trombone to cavernous beats and droning feedback. This is the kind of decibel-clashing combination in which The Body excels.” – NPR

“Lead single “Nothing Stirs” is brutally beautiful, with featured vocals
from Kristin Haytor and Ben Eberle”
 – Stereogum

Ahead of the release of their new album I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer, out 11th May, The Body have shared the single “Can Carry No Weight,” which features Lingua Ignota’s Kristin Hayter. Hayter will be joining The Body on the road for their extensive North American tour this summer, both performing with The Body and Lingua Ignota.

The Body are known for their intense, abrasive live shows, whose waves of dissonance create an abiding dread or an overwhelming sense of terror, they create a volume of sound almost unfathomable from a duo and are unaffected by instrument choice: guitar and drums, or keyboard and synthesizers. On I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer, The Body challenged themselves by turning their compositional approach on its head, choosing to build the record on their own samples rather than recording the basic tracks of drums and guitars and processing those.

In addtion to Hayter, I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer features performances by Uniform’s Michael Berdan, as well as regular contributors Chrissy Wolpert (Assembly of Light Choir), Ben Eberle (Sandworm), and engineers Seth Manchester and Keith Souza (Machines With Magnets).
