Los Angeles, CA hardcore/metal maulers Body Count (led by the notorious Ice-T) have just announced a monumental headline show in New York for this spring! The concert is scheduled to go down at The Paramount in Huntington, NY on May 31, and will feature support from non other than Long Island’s own brutal death metal legends Suffocation. Tickets go on sale 3/20. Check out the show flyer below.
The LI show will mark Body Count‘s only east coast appearance till at least the summer. Last year saw the release of the band’s fifth studio album and first LP in 8 years, Manslaughter, via Sumerian Records.
The last time Suffocation appeared at The Paramount was in 2012 when the guys were inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, which was followed by a celebratory gig a few days later at Ollie’s Point (now known as Revolution Bar & Music Hall) in Amityville (didja catch our coverage?). Coincidentally enough, Suffocation will return to Revolution on May 23 for a headline show of their own along side supporting acts Artificial Brain, Immortal Suffering, You Only Die A Lot and Get Ignorant [tix on sale now]. < — This show has been canceled.
UPDATE: Stray From The Path have been added to the show.
