FRAIL BODY sign to Deathwish Inc., announce new album ‘A Brief Memoriam’

“Echoing bands such as Gospel and Orchid, and fitting in well with contemporaries like Hundreds of AU or Terry Green, their brand of captivatingly melodic and moving screamo is most powerful when witnessed live — don’t miss them when they roll through your town.” – Kerrang! 50 Best American Hardcore Bands Right Now

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” (listen + share on YouTube) 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 (pre-order here) and see Frail Body on tour in anticipation of the album in September and October — dates are listed below.
