FRAIL BODY SIGN TO DEATHWISH INC., ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘A BRIEF MEMORIAM’
Their 7-song LP will be released on November 1st. Listen to the album’s new single ‘Pastel’ now. See Frail Body on the road in September & October, playing select shows with Defeater, Jerome’s Dream.
Illinois-based Frail Body embodies the spirit and soul of what many define as “screamo;” their songs are lamentations about nihilism, death, anxiety, existentialism and hopelessness of existence in modern American society, and both lyrically and sonically they unfurl with ground-shaking emotion. Their forthcoming album, ‘A Brief Memoriam’, will be released November 1st via Deathwish Inc.
Album opener ‘Pastel’ erupts with unhinged emotion driven by discordant guitars and hyper-speed drumming — appropriately setting the tone for the rest of the album. Three new tracks of equal pedigree follow, and the b-side of ‘A Brief Memoriam’ is comprised of their incredible At Peace session— a recording that shows Frail Body even in their earliest state was a heartfelt, creative force.
‘A Brief Memoriam’ is an excellent introduction to Frail Body, and this kinetic and cathartic 7-song LP is a necessary addition to any collection. Look for ‘A Brief Memoriam’ to be available this fall from from Deathwish and see Frail Body on tour in anticipation of the album in September and October — dates are listed below.
