Lee Buford and Chip King call themselves The Body because they felt it was right to do so, and it is. With some nice feedback for their previous album Christs, Redeemers they are ready to hit people over the head again with a brand new one called I Shall Die Here (RVNG), which apparently will be “wholly experimental”. For a hint of how out there they get, check out “Hail To Thee, Everlasting Pain” below.

On top of that, you have to love a band whose album cover photo was taken from The Last Whole Earth Catalog.

Although Warner Bros. Records had the idea first when they used the catalog to create The Whole Burbank Catalog double LP in 1972 as part of their Loss Leaders series of compilations.

The 6-song I Shall Die Here will be released on April Fool’s Day in the U.S., and a day before in the UK. Pre-orders for the LP or CD version can be purchased directly from RVNG, or from Bandcamp below, where you’ll be able to pre-order it digitally.
