The Body will release their most ambitious album to date, I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longeron the 11th May through Thrill Jockey. On their follow up to 2016’s acclaimed No One Deserves Happiness, the Portland duo of Lee Buford and Chip King conjure the sublime from the unexpected 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.

The album features regular collaborators; Chrissy Wolpert (Assembly of Light Choir) and Ben Eberle (Sandworm), and longtime engineers Seth Manchester and Keith Souza (Machines With Magnets), as well as guest performances by Kristin Hayter (Lingua Ignota), and Michael Berdan (Uniform).
