With over 20 albums and over 30 years, The Necks need no introduction…

…Hey, really, I mean it!

Still, the Australian trio just keeps churning forward. This August, they’ll be delivering what they’re calling “their most relentlessly driving album since Hanging Gardens.” (Ooh, deep cut!)

Body will be an hour-long groove in four chapters. It arrives on Northern Spy Records digitally on August 14, and on limited edition CD on September 21. (That’s right, if you’re too cool for digital music, you’re gonna have to wait.)

Though this probably isn’t enough time to dig through their whole catalogue, it should give you enough to check out last year’s Unfold, which earned a Eureka! Review from us. Then you can pre-order the album over on Bandcamp.

To further tease us, the band has offered ten words/phrases to describe this new chapter in their music. They are: “Episodic, Driving, Dynamic, Layered, Celebratory, Soaring, Rocking out, Buoyant, Sustained, Perfectly paced.” I guess after 30 years, you get to be your own reviewers. Kinda sucks for us though…
