Boris

After releasing a relatively miniscule amount of recordings in the US in 2010 (the Boris/Ian Astbury collaborative EP BXI and the Torche/Boris split on Hydrahead), Boris will go absolutely apeshit in the first four months of 2011 by releasing THREE LPs: two brand new albums in the US in April and a third new album in Japan!

First up is Heavy Rocks, which shares the same title as their breakthrough 2002 LP. Boris's new version of Heavy Rocks reportedly "seeks to redefine 'heavy' music in a culmination of the band's tireless efforts over the past two decades", and therefore revisited the name and the LP's cover art (with purple in the place of the previous orange). Sargent House will release the LP on April 26th.

Next is Attention Please which is due on the same day as Heavy Rocks and also via Sargent House. The LP contains another ten tracks, all of which feature Wata on vocals. It will be the first time she's been the vocal focus of a whole LP.

And thirdly is the Japanese release playfully entitled New Album, due on March 16th via Tearbridge/Daymare. This LP is currently not scheduled for release in the US and features another eleven tracks of material including the currently streaming "Party Boy" which also appears on Attention Please, and on their previously-released Southern Lord 7" series Japanese Heavy Rock Hits. "8" from that series is also on the new Heavy Rocks. BUT, according to the band's PR team, each song that appears on another release is a wholly different version than the last.

Oh, and did I mention Boris has the new Live in Japan DVD, a Japanese-vinyl-only Boris/Merzbow set entitled Klatter, and a Stephen O'Malley/Atsuo LP entitled Uroborus Circuit out now? Boris obsessives, I do not envy you/your wallets right now.

The Japanese New Album will set you back $50.27. Hope they do a US release of this.

Totally off topic but the last time I saw A Boris , there was this amazingly annoying couple who were not only talking during the whole show but were talking about TMI info. The guy kept asking her "Do you like my seven and a half inches? Do you like my seven and a half inches? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool

i'm excited... but seriously, a new album with the same name and cover art (besides different color) as a previous one?

Does anyone else find it odd that Sargent House is releasing the two Stateside releases?

Posted by Anonymous | February 17, 2011 2:43 PM

Cool news.

So, what's the catch?

Posted by Anonymous | February 17, 2011 3:21 PM

Technically, Klatter isn't out yet (2/23), so that'S FOUR albums coming up. FOUR.

Posted by sickofmotion | February 17, 2011 3:21 PM

And they will all be boring and dull!

No care for Boris or their music - just wanted to comment on this incredible light set up.

***totally off topic but everytime I read that comment regarding the amazingly annoying couple who were talking about TMI info, I always think back to a time when I brought a rather large container of hummus to a house party and when everyone was gathered around dipping their pita triangles into it I recall asking them, "Do like my seven and a half inch bowl of hummus? Do you like my seven and a half inch bowl of hummus? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool'

too much music. slow down, release things slower. its hard trying to keep up with all the material theyve released over the years. theyre like a Japanese Lil Wayne...and they make me want to just give up.

This is all completely awesome news. It is disappointing that there will be no US tour because their most recent US tour in the fall was supposedly their last US tour ever.

I hate Boris too..... Fabrizio pinched my nipple once because I sort of look like Drew Barrymore's brother.

Boris are a pop band now

I'm all for being a band with a diverse arsenal of weapons, but this song is terrible.

Posted by Anonymous | February 18, 2011 2:05 PM

Is this album fake? It's so... un-borisy.

Posted by Anonymous | March 14, 2011 6:46 PM

This band is a fucking force to be feared. Boris is destined for rock stardom.
