We’re excited to announce the return of Japanese experimental rock behemoths Boris.
Boris formed in the early 1990s as a four-piece just-for-fun endeavor with the sonic template of influences like Melvins and Earth. By the time of its 1996 debut as a trio Absolutego (later released in the US via Southern Lord), Boris had already hit its stride in creating unique ground-rattling heavy, melodic music.
The group, bassist/vocalist Takeshi, guitarist/vocalist Wata and drummer/vocalist Atsuo went on to release nearly 20 studio albums, as well as numerous collaborative albums – including projects with Merzbow, Sunn0))), Ian Astbury and Michio Kurihara of Ghost (who also currently tours with the band as second guitarist and frequently guests on albums) – EPs and singles on various labels throughout the world.
Don’t miss this chance to behold of the most exciting, invigorating, challenging rock bands on the planet!
