Show Me The Body is an ecclesiastical hardcore trio consisting of Julian Cashwan Pratt (founder; banjo and vocals), Harlan Steed (founder; bass), and Jackie McDermott (current drummer).
The band, originally started in 2009, have released a handful of EPs and two groundbreaking studio albums in 2016's Body War and the 2019 release Dog Whistle.
They have organized non-traditional, intentional DIY spaces for NYC youth since 2015, and since expanded that work to a global capacity through their urgent, ceremonial live shows, subterranean punk and hip-hop mixed tours, and their CORPUS NYC platform. Through the intentional cultivation of their local and global chosen families, and a decade-long dedication to sustaining the New York Sound, Show Me The Body has solidified a legacy of confronting and permanently shifting the rigid limitations of the hardcore genre.
Latest album, Trouble The Water, is out now on Loma Vista Recordings.
