The Body and Full of Hell share new video for track lifted from their second collaborative album

Next month will see the release of the second collaborative album from The Body and Full of Hell via Thrill Jockey.

Ahead of its release, the bands have shared a video for album track 'Farewell Man', a crunchy, abrasive piece of noise metal, naturally featuring gloomy, somewhat pagan imagery. The video is directed by Cody Stauder and can be watched above.

"When we were writing 'Farewell, Man', we wanted to encapsulate the free base form of what makes The Body what they are and what makes Full of Hell what we are," says Full of Hell's Dylan Walker. "The structuring is simple and blown out and there's an extreme variance in tempo. The video was filmed in the Appalachian woods of Pennsylvania. The focus and subject of the video is an immersion baptism, which becomes a drowning. We placed a lot of focus on colour and light in each shot and I think it visually represents some of what's going on throughout this record."

The album, titled Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light, was written and recorded in one week at Machines with Magnets in Providence. The album is said to draw on unexpected sounds of inspiration such as reggaeton and jungle.

The Body and Full of Hell plan to tour the album together in early 2018, while Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light will be released on November 17. It can be pre-ordered here.
