BODY COUNT To Perform During GRAMMY AWARDS Pre-Telecast Ceremony

BODY COUNT, the metal band fronted by hip-hop legend, actor and director Ice-T, will perform during the pre-telecast ceremony at the 60th annual Grammy Awards, which will be held on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

BODY COUNT's song "Black Hoodie" was nominated in the "Best Metal Performance" category at this year's event, which will be broadcast on CBS at 7:30 p.m. ET. Also nominated in the same category were MASTODON, MESHUGGAH, AUGUST BURNS RED and CODE ORANGE.

Most of the categories are awarded in a pre-telecast ceremony the same day as the live broadcast on CBS. The pre-telecast ceremony will be available to stream online via Grammy.com.

"Black Hoodie" is taken from BODY COUNT's latest album, "Bloodlust", which was released on March 31 via Century Media Records.

"Bloodlust" was recorded with producer Will Putney (MISS MAY I, UPON A BURNING BODY), who also helmed 2014's "Manslaughter". The CD features guest appearances by Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, SEPULTURA), MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine and LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe. The effort also contains BODY COUNT's medley of the SLAYER songs "Postmortem" and "Raining Blood".
