Get ‘em bodied: Show Me The Body release debut ‘Body War’ album

Show Me The Body release debut ‘Body War’ album

The New York crew’s first full-length has been uploaded to their website.

New York noise merchants Show Me The Body have released ‘Body War’, their debut album.

Following - and opening with - the chaotic latest single of the same name, the record is an industrial, careering trip through the dirt and grit of their big city home. After teasing its release last week, the record was uploaded to the band’s website via Corpus, Show Me The Body’s sharing platform, at midnight last night.

Speaking to Neu at the start of the year, frontman Julian Cashwan-Pratt attempted to explain the ethos behind Corpus. “Corpus is, not necessarily defining it, but so far it’s a platform for us to put music out for free,” he explained, before bassist Harlan Steed expanded: “It’s a space for content – it’s a space to find our stuff, but to not have to go through bullshit third-party places to find it.”
