Boris Announce US Mini-Tour
It’s been a while since Japanese drone titans Boris toured the US (two years ago, if memory serves correctly, with The Atlas Moth and SubRosa). But in support of Gensho, their upcoming collaboration with Merzbow, the band will be playing eight American shows starting in late April. You can check out dates below.
I’ve never seen Boris live, but the things that my excitable friends compare the experience to are pretty insane–having a concrete wall dropped on you, being dragged from a tank going two miles an hour, et cetera. Vince himself said a Boris show was like “getting pummeled with a sledgehammer then being asked to mop up the bloody entrails yourself, all while said sledgehammer continues to bludgeon your remains as you mop, mop away, ever so slowly… all with a smile on your face.” So even if drone music isn’t your thing, maybe go check it out for yourself.
Get your eardrums pierced at one of the following dates. Gensho comes out March 18th on Relapse.
