New York-based experimental punk trio Show Me The Body has revealed its third studio album Trouble The Water. It's out October 28 via Loma Vista Recordings.
Trouble The Water's announcement comes with a new song “We Came To Play.” Like Show Me The Body's previous single "Loose Talk," "We Came To Play" is an urgent battle cry, part celebration of the band's community and boiled-blood rejection of the impossible odds they face. "Even when you feel small, sick of it all," Julian Cashwan Pratt growls, "my people taught me to wrestle with God." Allusions to '90s metal and hardcore aside, "We Came To Play" is yet another timely track from a band that's more tapped to the stakes than most.
The new album follows 2016's Body War and 2019's Dog Whistle. Corpus I, a compilation featuring artists aligned with Show Me The Body's CORPUS collective, dropped in 2017 with features from Denzel Curry, Eartheater, Moor Mother, Dedekind Cut, and more. The three-song EP Survive came out in March 2021.
