Meatbodies Share Video “Cancer”

Over the course of the decade, Meatbodies’ Chad Ubovich has been a perennial candidate for MVP of West Coast’s fertile rock scene. The LA native could be seen peeling off guitar solos in Mikal Cronin’s backing band, supplying the Sabbath-sized low end for Ty Segall & Charlie Moothart as the bassist for Fuzz, and, of course, fronting his own Meatbodies. The experimental noise/freak-rock outfit returns with 333 (In The Red Records) – a new batch of corrosive bangers, raw acoustic rave-ups, and primitive electronics set for release on September 3, 2021. The album charts Ubovich’s journey from drug-induced darkness to clear-eyed sobriety – while simultaneously reflecting on how the world he re-entered was still pretty messed up — if not more so. Today he shares the video for his new single “Cancer.”

“I’d been touring for eight years straight with all these bands, and just couldn’t do it anymore,” he says. “There was also a feeling in the air that everything was changing, politically. Things just didn’t feel right, and I went down a dark path.”
