At A Loss Recordings have confirmed an collaborative full-length release between Rhode Island’s apocalyptic noise/doom duo THE BODYand North Carolina’s orchestral/drone rock harbingers BRAVEYOUNG.
With both bands having already performed live together multiple times, including a mini-tour earlier this year where the members of bothTHE BODY and BRAVEYOUNG performed collaborative material live in several cities of the tour, the time came for the bands to unite their sonic crafts together on tape. After a collaborative recording session at Providence’s Machines With Magnets (Battles, Daughters, Lightning Bolt, Chinese Stars) earlier this year, the end result has surfaced as Nothing Passes, a layered but cohesive voyage through cavernous, noise-laden tumult and chaos, ethereal horror-soundtrack creepouts and even serene acoustic passages, exploring new styles for both acts. The album also features vocal contributions from members of The Assembly Of Light Choir who have also previously collaborated live with THE BODY and BRAVEYOUNG, as well as a cover of Exuma’s song, The Vision.
At A Loss will release Nothing Passes worldwide on September 27th in CD and digital formats, with the vinyl pressing due early in 2012. View the cover art as well as THE BODY and BRAVEYOUNG performing the first song from the upcoming release, live at Machines With Magnets earlier this year, at this location.
