The Body and Uniform celebrate the power of friendship on a new collaborative LP for Sacred Bones, stream the first single
Because let's face it: every body needs a uniform...

For a band that makes soul-crunching music about solitude, dread, and suicide, The Body sure seems to have a lot of friends. Following the recent release of their LP I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer., the singular death-music band have announced another collaboration (something they’re prone to doing) with industrial metal act Uniform, who joined them on tour last year.

After really hitting it off on the tour van, the two acts decided that together they would create an album loud in both decibels and cultural references. The first single from the record, the famous-rapture-quoting “Come And See,” can be heard now right down below. The record’s title of course comes from a certain type of scripture as well — pulling from the lyrics every death metal fan’s once favorite song. All aboard!

The album is a part of Sacred Bones’ Alliance Series: a series of collaborative records put out by the legendary goth label over time. Though I think The Body and Uniform had a lot of fun hanging out together, their music is unified by a sense of paralyzing hopelessness for what’s to come. I guess, like Ozzy, sometimes the best thing to do is laugh…Oh, and I guess also buy the record.
