"Many Waters," a new compilation produced by Thou with help from Thrill Jockey, is due to be released on January 30th, with proceeds going to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank to assist efforts in aiding those affected by the Louisiana floods of August 2016.
The compilation features a range of exclusive tracks from acclaimed metal acts as well as Louisiana DIY mainstays, including The Body & Full of Hell covering Devo, Thou covering Neil Young, special live tracks from Sumac and Old Man Gloom, and a solo live recording by Mike Scheidt of Yob.
Thou drummer Joshua Nee comments: “I spent the better part of three weeks after the flood driving around neighborhoods looking for homes to help out. Every day after work and pretty much all day on the weekends was spent gutting damaged homes. A practice space we had been sharing with a slew of other bands was totally wrecked, and countless bands I know had their spaces and equipment destroyed. More...
The Body and Full Of Hell are pleased to confirm a collaborative North American tour in support of their "One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache" joint full-length, issued in March through Neurot Recordings.
The nihilistic live takeover begins August 19th in Vancouver, British Columbia and tramples its way through nearly two-dozen cities, the tour drawing to a close on September 10th in Providence, Rhode Island.
The journey will find both bands executing their sonic deviance as one unit, as well as performing new versions of old songs from each of their respective discographies. The latest run of dates follows the bands' concerted European invasion this past April. More...

Next week will see the release of "One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache," the fittingly-titled, collaborative debut between apocalyptic doom duo The Body and grindcore/harsh noise sculptors, Full Of Hell.
Set for release on March 25th via Neurot Recordings, the offering came together during last year's massive North American trek, which united both bands. Amidst the chaos of tour life, the two groups found time to record together at Machines With Magnets in Providence, Rhode Island.
The session eventually culminated into the harrowing sounds found on "One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache," which is ultimately an audio reflection of their surroundings and their inability to cope therein. Check out a new video for the collaboration's second movement "Fleshworks" below.
"We went into this track wanting to create a song that was mellow yet driving," elaborates Full Of Hell vocalist Dylan Walker, "We were certainly channeling a lot of what The Body has been moving towards and a lot of what Full Of Hell has been into for some time. Dave, Lee, Seth and Keith [Machines With Magnets] all played drums on this track at the same time. It was a great feeling to have Chrissy Wolpert of the Assembly Of Light Choir singing on the track as well. Our friend Mitch Wells [Thou] created the video with only the lyrics and basic album themes to guide him. He made something that is very different for both bands and something we are very proud of. He captured what we were writing about from an angle that we hadn't even considered." More...
Nestled between the harrowing originals that The Body and Full Of Hell created for their upcoming full-length collaboration "One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache," is a cover so radically reworked that even the closest listener might miss it.
"The Butcher," originally by Leonard Cohen, is shattered in to bits and pieced back together to create a jarring noisescape, mimicking the blues scale with landslides of shifting feedback, and orated in the trademark style of Chip King.
Check out The Body and Full Of Hell's cover version below. In related news, the nihilistic union will descend upon Europe together this April. The string of dates see the bands traveling across the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic, France, Spain and Portugal, including appearances at the renowned Roadburn Festival and providing support for Converge's "Blood Moon" spectacle at the Electric Brixton, London.

20 Buck Spin and Gilead Media will join forces in Summer 2016 to present the inaugural Migration Festival in Olympia, Washington. Jointly conceived by the two labels, Migration Fest will primarily showcase bands from each label's roster, as well as select other affiliated and respected artists.
The festival is set to take place at the historic Capitol Theater in downtown Olympia on August 12th, 13th, and 14th. Confirmed bands include Auroch, The Body & Krieg collaborative performance, Christian Mistress, Dead To A Dying World, False, Fórn, Full Of Hell, Khemmis, Kowloon Walled City, Krallice, Mutilation Rites, Nightfell, Obsequiae, Pale Chalice, Thou, Vastum, Vhol, And Yellow Eyes.
Approximately six additional bands, including some headliners, will be announced later. There will also be separate after-shows to occur at a smaller local venue. Ticket information, including price and on-sale date, will be announced in the near future.
20 Buck Spin founder David Adelson comments: "I'd heard Adam (Bartlett, Gilead Media boss) was thinking of coming West to do the next iteration of Gilead Fest. I'd been thinking of doing something similar myself for years but never had, and so suggested we join up and do something together. Adam was immediately receptive and the idea for Migration Festival was born right then. Olympia felt right since I'm already based here, and because of its small size and walkability this is a great place to have it, both for locals, and for out-of-towers.
Says Adam Bartlett, "After two successful installments of my own Gilead Fest in this small Wisconsin town it seemed like the time was right to branch out and try something different. The idea to work with Dave and his label on a collaborative event makes perfect sense given our similar music backgrounds and diverse, but complimentary label families. And Olympia serves as the perfect central location for this type of festival." More...

The continuing discography of apocalyptic rogue faction The Body expands once again with a newest anti-human outcry through a collaborative LP with Krieg. The split is now locked up for official release on November 13, 2015 through At A Loss Recordings.
Formed in mid-1990s and late 1990s, respectively, Krieg and The Body met in the mid 2000s, being different sonically but sharing a bleak world view and inspirations musically far outside of the genre standards of metal. When Neill Jameson, the sole founding and constant member of Krieg, showed up to the recording sessions at Machines With Magnets in Providence, Rhode Island with only an acoustic guitar, a few pedals and a bottle of whiskey, Lee Buford and Chop King of The Body knew that the collaboration would be something vastly different from their other recordings.
Written and recorded during the long sessions of The Boyd's "Christs, Redeemers" and "I Shall Die Here" LPs, the end result is a blackened industrial crush of noise and anguish. Stand by for audio transmissions, pre-order links and more on The Body & Krieg in the coming days. The track listing is:
1. Bottom Of The Bottle, Bottom Of The River
2. Carved Out And Caved In
4. Celebrate Your Shame
5. Never Worth Your Name
7. A Failure Worth Killing Yourself
8. The Final Nail More...

Recent broadcasts have warned North American citizens of the impending widespread incursion of Portland, Oregon-based doomsday cult The Body in the coming weeks, including many dates alongside the equally dangerous Full Of Hell.
Yet now the threat grows even more ominous as new reports have confirmed even more towns on the list to be overrun during this outbreak of manic auditory punishment. A new list of performances preceding, during, and following the trail of terror with Full Of Hell have been added, including several dates with Sandworm-related act, Clean, which even sees the caravan reaching Canadian soil.

Portland, Oregon-based doomsday cult The Body has declared an extensive itinerary of upcoming live actions in support of an end-time message, including a major Spring offensive with Full Of Hell.
In March, The Body has two California gigs confirmed, including participation with Two Piece Fest West, playing the second day of the event in Berkeley on March 7th, and a show the following night in Los Angeles.
Just a month later, a quick run of solo shows through the center of the country will transplant The Body in one of prior hometown of Providence, Rhode Island to convene with Full Of Hell on April 4th, beginning a five-week tour assault through the entire country together. The routing will take the band full circle, returning to Providence on May 17th for the final show.
An act notorious for constantly touring and recording new material, The Body recently unleashed two separate collaborative recordings with Thou; the first, "Released From Love," through Vinyl Rites in April 2014 and the second, "You, Whom I Have Always Hated," just this year via Thrill Jockey, also responsible for the band's 2014-released split with Sandworm and 2013-released "I Shall Die Here" collaboration with The Haxan Cloak.

The Body & Thou - a collaboration between the two bands The Body and Thou - is streaming a new music video for the song "Beyond the Realms of Dream, That Fleeting Shade Under the Corpus of Vanity" off the album "You, Whom I Have Always Hated" out on Thrill Jockey.
Being asked about where the clip was shot and who the person in the parka is Thou’s Mitch Wells explains: "The video was all done pretty easily, and cheaply! I only spent $30 on a strobe light, and the creepy person in the parka is my beautiful, beautiful, amazing wife Kathryn. Unfortunately for her we don’t really know too many people in Los Angeles yet so she’s forced, by marriage law, to walk around late at night scaring the neighbors. I would tell her things like, “Okay now act weird!” and she’d say, “What does that mean!? I don’t know what you want!!” I think she nailed it!"
You can now stream the eerie clip below.
