Thou & The Body Collaborative Release Out Now And Streaming

released from love

When you combine the doomsludge noise of Thou with the experimental-doom noise of The Body, you end up with something that will cause parents concern as the haunting and savage frequencies seep up from the basement.

In a clandestine and collaborative effort, Thou and The Body recorded the four-track Released From Love, available now via Vinyl Rites. The release is only being offered on vinyl – no CDs or digital versions will be unleashed. However, you can stream all four tracks over at

All four tracks are harrowing and intense. Fuzzed noise, electronic accents, horrific screams, heavy and powerful, this is the sound track to the end of the world and it’s completely perfect. The final track on Released From Love is an inspired cover of Vic Chesnutt’s “Coward.”

Released From Love Track Listing:

Side A
1. The Wheel Weaves as the Wheel Wills
2. Manifest Alchemy
Side B
3. In Meetings Hearts Beat Closer
4. Coward (Vic Chesnutt)
