Boris's new LP offerings Attention Please and Heavy Rocks (2011) represent a bit of a stylistic change for the ever-shifting Japanese band. As such, they've recruited some bands outside of the usual suspects in their upcoming North American tour announced today. Boris, who is currently in the EU with Russian Circles, will hit the road in the US for dates with Asobi Seksu, Tera Melos, True Widow (who play Union Pool in August), Master Musicians of Bukkake, Liturgy and others in October. Full tour schedule is below, including an NYC date with Asobi Seksu and Liturgy at Irving Plaza on 10/27. Ticketing info is forthcoming.

Meanwhile, Asobi Seksu play a FREE show at Pier 17 on Friday (7/15) with The Radio Dept AND a show at Brooklyn Bowl on 10/1 (tickets). Full Asobi Seksu dates are below.

All tour dates and a video for Boris's "Hope/Riot Sugar" (a song from each new LP in a single video) is below. For all of you superfans, keep a lookout for Boris - Attention Please underwear and/or pillows (above) which go on presale on 7/30.
