Hey! Here’s an interview with our singer Frances done by friends across the ocean. Our thanks goes out to Krstffr and xClusivx for helping put this together.
Mit Body Betrayal und Vow erscheinen auf Our Voltage zwei Bands, die ihre sexualpolitischen Aussagen mit Kunst und Körper transportieren.
We we’re recently featured in SPEX Magazine out of Berlin along side Our Voltage and label mates VOW. We’ll hopefully have the English version of the interview up soon.
I’m just here letting you know that we’re still kicking and screaming, more than half of us just moved to little ol’ Olympia, WA, and we had our first practice last night since two of our members left for tour earlier in the summer. We’ve started laying down the ground work for a bunch of new material and there are some big and exciting plans that will start to unfold in the near future. Until then, here’s the house cat named Dewey whose made the guitar amp his new bed.

Body Betrayal will not be attending Fed Up Fest in Chicago this year anymore, but there are still a tone of really awesome bands playing this fest. Check it out!
Body Betrayal’s “Soft Cage” 12” got reviewed in this month’s Maximum Rocknroll:
"All judgment and obvious musings about the one sided 12" 45 format aside (to be fair, the flipside is etched, but still…), I am into this record. Simultaneously epic and erratic song structures with a crushing production, songs like ‘My Gender Is Queer’ demand repeat listens to fully digest. There are blasts, discordance abounds, and the vocals reach back to a time when emo wasn’t a dirty word and instead implied a personal intensity. The title track that closes is a perfect (almost d-beat) burner with a mandatory mosh crammed into the middle, and a seriously dark heavy outro—a combination that kinda sums up ‘Soft Cage’ as a complete work. On second thought, maybe the format is perfect? I just want to move the needle back to the start when it’s over…it’s not as if I don’t want more, but rather that I want more of this. So I’ll listen again."
