Providence, Rhode Island’s crushing duo THE BODY are preparing to wage war on the East Coast once again this June, this time bearing opening and collaborative support from their hometown allies in The Assembly Of Light Choir!
Devotees of THE BODY‘s acclaimed, oppressive 2010-released full-length, All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood, will know the name of The Assembly Of Light Choir, as these several dozen women added some of the utmost creepiest moments to the unique album. This special tour will feature a full set by The Assembly Of Light Choir, followed by a full set by THE BODY, then a collaborative set with both bands. A fully-seated performance is planned for Manhattan and the tour will play a church in Washington DC. Down-tempo rockers Braveyoung, who THE BODY have also toured and collaborated with in the past, will join for several of the shows as well.
