Friendship Commanders: And if My Body

Friendship Commanders make a strong return just in time for election season, making a statement and being as drastic as ever with their new single, And if My Body

The song is a resolute dismissal of government or other factions of American society enforcing bodily control. Friendship Commanders' guitarist and vocalist Buick Audra notes the insincerity of expecting labor and cooperation from people with uteruses while systematically removing their human rights in the aftermath of the harmful and hazardous Supreme Court decision to overturn the landmark ruling Roe v Wade.

Buick Audra says: “This is a failure of such enormity that we can’t even see the scope of it yet. It will ripple out for decades. And I find myself asking questions of not just the conservative minority who pushed this through, but of people on the Left as well. This is a product of many things, not the least of which are complacency and privilege. I have watched this happen; watched my peers downplay, minimize, and ignore all warnings that we activists have been shouting for years. And here we are, now. Failure.

Musically, the song is a straightforward grunge rocker, in keeping with the band's dynamism and the sound we've come to expect from them.

The band's longtime collaborator, Kurt Ballou (Converge, GodCity Studio) mixed the track, which was then mastered by Brad Boatright.
