THE BODY Tour Interrupted, But Will Continue; Full Show Video Posted

Due to a family emergency, the tumultuous duo THE BODY have been forced to bow out of several planned shows of their two-month long US tour last week. After a brief return back home to Rhode Island, the band are restocking their arsenal in preparation to get back out on the road next week for the final leg of the tour. A slew of new shows have been added for later in the fall as well.

In addition, a brand new fan-filmed video of THE BODY destroying Tulsa, Oklahoma on the current tour was posted recently. The video is over 20 minutes long, documenting the band’s entire scathing set; that is until they blew out the microphones and had to end the set a bit early. Check out the carnage here:

“Like the best of Eyehategod or Bastard Noise, All the Waters is the rare album that feels truly dangerous… The record itself is a smartly designed simulacrum for the lyrics, recreating the sense of impending darkness by creating a sound that swallows itself… All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood is the seldom collapse-of-the-world record that’s actually as disturbing as it wants to be.” – Pitchfork

“As the record continues, the beating just doesn’t stop. The choral voices, returning here and there, are the only ray of hope: the Body’s own singing amounts to weedy, apocalyptic howls, barely clearing the din of their processional stomps. It’s an experience, this record, written in big riffs and celestial choirs and digital static.” – The New York Times

“One of the most unrelenting, riveting, odd and just plain special records of the year.” – Brooklyn Vegan

“.. be prepared to look beyond the realms of traditional doom, or of conventional heaviness, because The Body are anything but traditional or conventional, and All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood just might be the coolest, weirdest, most original doom record EVER.” – Aquarius Records

“Ever since Black Sabbath’s debut 40 years ago, doom metal bands have been providing the soundtrack to the end of humanity, but Providence, Rhode Island’s The Body may be one of the first to make Armageddon sound truly scary.” – Rue Morgue Magazine
