Today, Show Me The Body provide a taste of the live album with, Camp Orchestra / Metallic Taste (Live in Santa Ana).

Additionally, Show Me The Body announces their Trouble The Water mini-documentary, which was created by filmmaker, Oliver Shahery, and will premiere with a screening at Brain Dead Studios in Los Angeles on October 27.
Kicking off this Saturday, Show Me The Body is set to perform a string of West Coast dates with The Garden beginning in Oakland on October 14 with stops in Portland, Seattle, Boise, Reno and Phoenix, before wrapping up in San Diego on October 26. Tickets available here.
Live & Loose In The USA will arrive on the heels of Show Me The Body's recently released remix EP Trouble The Water - Remixes, which includes reimagined versions of select tracks from their 2022 full-length from Detroit ghettotech trio HiTech, Pink Siifu, Michael "5000" Watts of Swishahouse fame, Slauson Malone 1, and Psymun featuring RXKNephew.
The trio recently wrapped up their epic aforementioned World War Tour, which saw sold out shows across America, including Brooklyn Steel, and hosted a free show at New York City's Tompkins Square Park in partnership with their label CORPUS, drawing hundreds of enthusiastic fans on a Friday afternoon. Show Me The Body made a stir with their cover of the Beastie Boys' classic Sabotage, and a captivating performance of their fan-favourite, Trash, from their 2017 Corpus I mixtape.
Released at the end of last year, Trouble The Water is Show Me The Body's fourth full-length and includes the anthemic tracks WW4, Loose Talk, which came paired with a video directed by front man Julian Cashwan Pratt, and We Came To Play. The 12-track album was recorded entirely at CORPUS studios in Long Island City and produced with Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Turnstile, Municipal Waste). Trouble The Water is the culmination of nearly a decade's time barreling against New York City’s structural ambivalence and indifference. The tracks of Trouble The Water both reference and pay homage to the physical city, and the New York Sound: not one particular genre, but the people and subcultures that encapsulate its true foundation.
