Today brings the new 7-inch from underground New York hell raisers Show Me the Body, Challenge Coin. The release features the group’s recent single, “K-9,” b/w the noisy new war cry, “Talk,” featuring vocals that are a perfect fit for surviving the holiday season. “Nothing said makes us friends / nothing said makes us blood,” is chanted over crashing cymbals while high-pitched noises riff in and out.
The group previewed the release last night in New York at a Canal Street pop up offering the physical release as well as a collection of eye-catching merch, including a handful of DIY North Face and Nautica “collabs” sporting the Show Me the Body three coffin logo etched over the name brand.
