Nomadic, apocalyptic doom cult, THE BODY, is currently embarked on its latest two-month-long crusade, reigning end-time sermons upon the masses through a barrage of incomprehensibly heavy tonal destruction. With a week of the tour already behind them, tomorrow begins the next massive phase, when the duo congregates with their cohorts in Full Of Hell for a month of travels together.
THE BODY‘s terror crusade noise/powerviolence unit, Full Of Hell will blaze its clockwise mark in North America, carving a path from the Northeast and down the East Coast, through the Gulf and Southwest states, up the West Coast and back through the Midwest US with, the trek beginning and ending back in THE BODY‘s prior home of Providence, Rhode Island. Immediately after the full run with Full Of Hell, a trio of shows with Sandworm-related act, Clean, hit Maine, Quebec and Ontario, after which THE BODY reunites with Full Of Hell in Washington DC, along with Primitive Man.
THE BODY has also been confirmed to take part in the widespread live actions of Apex VI Fest. The sixth biennial installment of the apocalyptic music event which overthrows Queens, NYC for three full days in June, will feature the duo collaborating with special guests yet to be announced as the headlining act of the final night, Sunday, June 7th. Additionally, Northeastern mini-tours surround the festival, which will also see THE BODY joining the first tour’s stop in Baltimore on Wednesday, June 3rd.
