Frail Body Will Release A BRIEF MEMORIAM Via Deathwish Inc.

Frail Body Will Release A BRIEF MEMORIAM Via Deathwish Inc.

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 Deathwish and see Frail Body on tour in anticipation of the album in September and October - dates are listed below.
