The Body have announced a new album called I’ve Seen All I Need to See. The Portland noise metal duo’s latest arrives January 29, 2021 via Thrill Jockey. The band have previewed the album with the lead single, ‘A Lament’, via Bandcamp. Listen to it below.
In addition to the Body’s core duo of Chip King and Lee Buford, the new LP includes contributions from vocalist/pianist Chrissy Wolpert as well as vocalist Ben Eberle. I’ve Seen All I Need to See was mastered by Matt Colton (Aphex Twin, New Order, Sunn O))), Sumac) and engineered by Seth Manchester.
“It’s a meditation on distortion,” Seth Manchester said of the album in statement. “We tried pushing the limits of each piece of gear in the studio to hear what its breaking point sounded like and then recorded it—even feeding the console back on itself during one particular live take.”
Matt Colton added: “The distortion has this ability to envelope you, and not push you away. It has this strange kind of beautiful timbre…once you give into the sheer power of it, and let it take you on a ride then it becomes this whole other kind of sonic experience.”
The Body’s most recent studio album was 2018’s I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer. That same year, they collaborated with Uniform for Mental Wounds Not Healing.
