THE BODY And FULL OF HELL Announces Collaborative North American Tour

THE BODY and FULL OF HELL are pleased to confirm a collaborative North American tour in support of their One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache joint full-length, issued in March through Neurot Recordings . The nihilistic live takeover begins August 19th in Vancouver, British Columbia and tramples its way through nearly two-dozen cities, the tour drawing to a close on September 10th in Providence, Rhode Island. The journey will find both bands executing their sonic deviance as one unit, as well as performing new versions of old songs from each of their respective discographies. The latest run of dates follows the bands’ concerted European invasion this past April.

One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache came together during last year’s monolithic North American trek which united both bands. Amidst the chaos of tour life, the two groups found time to record together at Machines With Magnets in Providence, Rhode Island. The session eventually culminated into the harrowing sounds found on One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache, which is ultimately an audio reflection of their surroundings and their inability to cope therein. The record includes two bonus tracks as well as a bastardized rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “The Butcher.”

One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache is out now on Neurot Recording. To order your copy today visit THIS LOCATION.

“…a document of the overwhelming power of depression…” — Pitchfork

“One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache is unusual, disgusting, and just as harrowing as you’d come to expect from either THE BODY or FULL OF HELL. It’s one of the only truly unhinged albums that has come out in the last several years.” 

– Metal Injection

“This release never feels like it is heading too much in one direction, managing to stay dynamic and repugnant at all time by switching between tortured doom and frantic attack.” -- Pure Grain Audio

“There’s some fucked up chemistry on their collaboration. On tracks like ‘Fleshworks’ and ‘The Little Death,” the bands forge new sounds that couldn’t have happened in any other context. Mostly though, the reinforce each other’s impulses towards abstraction.” – Decibel Magazine

“…an absolute assault on your senses that will leave an imprint for years to come…. For maximum experience, listen at full volume in a cold, bare and unclean room with flickering lights while half naked and in a deranged state.” 
– New Noise Magazine

Neurosis’ SCOTT KELLY Currently Performing With Hamlet At The Oregon Shakespeare Festival

Neurosis’ SCOTT KELLY is currently performing with Hamlet at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The vocalist/guitarist plays the part of one of the Gravediggers, peasants or commoners that use their great wit and intellect to get the better of their superiors, other people of higher social status and each other. In addition to his role as Gravedigger, Kelly remains onstage for much of the performance’s duration playing music that serves as a soundtrack for the entire show and ultimately providing the sonic landscape for Hamlet’s psychological journey.

“This is an adventure for me,” KELLY reveals. “I have never scored a film or a play before and I've always wanted the opportunity to do so. Thanks to my employers of the last sixteen years, I am realizing this dream. Hamlet is an incredible ghost story about the darkest internal process. This production is amazing, the actors are some of the best at their craft in the world, and the director, Lisa Petterson, is nothing short of visionary. My co-collaberator, Paul James Prendergast, is one of my favorite people and it was his idea to bring me into this whole thing. I hope that as many of you who can be here will be here to share in this unique experience."

Hamlet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare sometime between 1599 and 1602. Based in Denmark, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet is called to wreak upon his uncle, Claudius, by the ghost of Hamlet's father, King Hamlet. Claudius had murdered his own brother and seized the throne, also marrying his deceased brother's widow. The spectral accusation torments Hamlet’s troubled mind, driving him to avenge a crime that may or may not be a product of his own imagining. Grand in scope, rich in language, this classic story of haunting, both literal and metaphorical, Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play, and is ranked among the most powerful and influential tragedies in English literature.

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a not-for-profit professional theatre founded in 1935. The season runs from February through early November. OSF has three theatres: two indoor stages, the Angus Bowmer Theatre and the Thomas Theatre, and their flagship outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre where Hamlet takes place. OSF offers eleven different plays that include three or four by Shakespeare and seven by other classic writers, as well as modern and contemporary work and world premieres. The OSF mission statement: "Inspired by Shakespeare's work and the cultural richness of the United States, we reveal our collective humanity through illuminating interpretations of new and classic plays, deepened by the kaleidoscope of rotating repertory."

Hamlet plays twice a week through October 14th (note: KELLY will not appear in performances from Augutst 8th – 22nd as he will be touring Europe with NEUROSIS).

On Clearing The Path To Ascend, YOB are as as formidable as they’ve ever been, demanding the tandem attention of mind, body and soul. Drummer Travis Foster wields his signature rhythmic furor here with bombastic precision while bassist Aaron Rieseberg coils around the sonic tide with an unforgiving churn – all the while in a deadly synchronicity with Mike Scheidt’s uncanny vocal range and its pendulous movement between the triumphant howls of a medieval madman and the earth splitting growls of a war-battered titan. Take this opportunity to revisit this remarkable album.

"The magic of Yob's set tonight lies in the centrepiece of their band's latest album…all four tracks are strong and stunning, in particular Marrow, which allows Mike Scheidt's voice to roll out across the venue in waves of perfect sadness, bringing to life and colour the slowly moving song…Mike's singular voice is ushered in via crunching guitars and the song shifts forward towards the inescapable, earth-shattering end." - 9/10 METAL HAMMER

"Sometimes, bands do the praise levelled at them justice but sometimes they outstrip them by leagues. Tonight was the latter, and then some." - ROCK A ROLLA

"There's loud, and there's transcendently loud, and this performance of 'The Great Cessation' is towering, the tone so thick it's tactile."

YOB is love.
