The Body have shared details of their new album.

'I've Seen All I Need to See' will arrive on January 29 via Thrill Jockey Records and will include the newly released eerie first single and LP opener A Lament, which crackles with harsh distortion.

The experimental metal duo worked on the record alongside engineer Seth Manchester of Machines With Magnets studio in Rhode Island. Mastering was handled by Matt Colton in the UK. Manchester said:

"It's a meditation on distortion. We tried pushing the limits of each piece of gear in the studio to hear what its breaking point sounded like and then recorded it - even feeding the console back on itself during one particular live take."

Colton added: "The distortion has this ability to envelope you, and not push you away. It has this strange kind of beautiful timbre...once you give into the sheer power of it, and let it take you on a ride then it becomes this whole other kind of sonic experience."

Their last full-length came in the form of 2018's 'I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer'. Since then, they’ve collaborated with the band Uniform and put out a remix collection marking their 20th anniversary.

'I've Seen All I Need To See' tracklist:

1. A Lament
2. Tied Up and Locked In
3. Eschatological Imperative
4. A Pain of Knowing
5. The City Is Shelled
6. They Are Coming
7. The Handle / The Blade
8. Path of Failure
