THE BODY: Five-Week U.S. Tour Assault Begins This Weekend

Not a band to sit around long enough for their smoldering amp heads to cool, THE BODY have just completed three shows in the Northeast US with Braveyoung, and are now entering full-on tour mode once again for the next five weeks.

Kicking off this Saturday evening in Ithaca, New York, the band will bulldoze another path across the country once again, including an appearance at next weeks’ massive Scion Rock Fest in California alongside Bastard Noise, Integrity, Morbid Angel, Obituary, Christian Mistress, Nails, Black Breath, Necrite and more.

THE BODY will also decimate multiple parties and showcases alongside Austin’s SXSW festivities, including the Converse and Thrasher’s Death Match alongside Zoroaster, Weedeater, Liturgy and Trash Talk, the BrooklynVegan/Profound Lore SXSW showcase with Dark Castle, Tombs, Grayceon, Wolvhammer, Castevet, Batillus, Altaar and Deafhaven, a party for their new booking agency Ballistic Missile Booking, and a Sleeping Giant Glossolalia/Not Not Fun day party on the last day of the fest, followed that same evening by a throwdown at Bro Fest with Liturgy, The Funeral Pyre, Owen Hart and more.

Following the multitude of live assaults in the Lone Star State, THE BODY will continue working their way back east alongside Australia’s disheartening Whitehorse for the following two weeks where they’ll complete the tour in their hometown of Providence, Rhode Island.
