THE BODY: Southeastern Mini-Tour Underway Now

Providence’s punishers THE BODY are back on the road early in the new year, set to kick off a Southeastern US mini-tour today. Kicking off tonight in New Orleans, the duo will devastate several other cities in Louisiana, Florida, North Carolina and Maryland over the coming days, appearing alongside Thou, Haarp and more over the short onslaught. These dates all build up to THE BODY’s appearance later this month where they are scheduled to provide support for reunited hardcore icons The Universal Order of Armageddon in New York City.

With the release of their second full-length All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood last July, THE BODY has rabidly risen from a virtually unknown underground act to a household name within the doom, sludge and avant/post-metal communities. After reaping massive acclaim from fans and the media alike for months prior to and subsequent to the album’s release, All The Waters… has recently been appearing on hundreds of year-end favorite lists worldwide, including Decibel, Brooklyn Vegan,, Popdose, Stereogum, Crustcake, MetalSucks, NME, The Quietus and countless more, and even bagging a #4 spot on NPR’s top 10 metal/drone albums of the year as well as a #6 spot on Pitchfork’s Reader’s Choice top 10 metal albums in their year-end reader’s poll!

Much more action from THE BODY is expected all through 2011 as they continue to storm more towns on tour and also put their latest recording plans into action.
