WATCH: The Body Vid (Roadburn News!)

The horror...the horror...

Ultra-sludgy US vile-mongers The Body have announced that they are to play next year’s Roadburn festival

"We are very pleased to announce The Body will be making a very rare appearance to Europe in 2014 for the famed festival Roadburn in 2014! The duo will plunge us into apocalyptic darkness and bring about the very end of days with devastating assaults of volume and brutal sonic battery on Friday, April 11th 2014 at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, The Netherlands."

Yes, "very pleased". Much like one would be "very pleased" to be forced face down into quick drying cement. With a scorpion in your hair.

Also, as if to celebrate the forthcoming Day of the Great Soul Reaping, The Body have unleashed the delightful new video to their track ‘Shrouded’ on the world. Here it is:

The Body – Shrouded from Thrill Jockey Records on Vimeo.

…urgh, what is the point of it all?
