The Body is an sludge doom duo from Providence that astonishes listeners with how heavy music can sound. Thundering riffs, harsh noise, industrial soundscapes, and gospel singing provide a backdrop for apocalyptic lyrics dripping with danger. For this special show they will collaborate with the Assembly of Light Choir, a 30-person, all-female choir that brings a lightness and grace to The Body’s innovative epics. This is a seated show.

As previously mentioned, The Body will team up with Whitehorse and Bad Dream (who replaced Unearthly Trance) for a gig on April 1st at The Acheron in Brooklyn. Show starts at 8:00 PM / all ages.
