Boris at Sled Island 2012 (more by Parker Langvardt)
Boris

Japan's Boris will return to the US for a string of "residencies" from coast to coast, tagging seven cities for two-night stays. Each citiy will get themed-night shows, with the first evening devoted to "all-time classics along with many new songs never before played in the US" and the second devoted to their 2000 LP, Flood, as well as some drone/experimentalism too. NYC is part of that campaign, so look for the band to hit Le Poisson Rouge on May 6 and 7. Tickets go on sale Friday (2/1) at 10 AM.

This is not the first time that Boris has visited a full album, they did all of Feedbacker at ATP NY in 2009.

Boris is also on board as part of Austin Psych Fest. Check out those dates as well as their entire tour schedule and a teaser video below.

Why does this have to be at LPR? It is not a comfortable venue to see Boris in. Y NO St. Vitus

Wata is a babe.

This sounds awesome. The fact that they are digging into their back catalog and weirder material bodes well for their next record. The last couple (with the exception of the purple one) were pretty flimsy.

Incredible band when they play to their strengths, however.

Yay! I'd read somewhere a year or so ago that Boris wasn't going to be touring in the States anymore. I'm glad to see that information was incorrect. Seeing Boris live is really something to behold. They are the musical equivalent of the ocean in all its moods.

"Wata is a babe"

So fucking true. One of the hottest girls in rock. I would kill you and your family to get with that.

The Feedbacker set was unreal how good it was...thankfully they won't be playing any Smile and after shit...where did this band go so wrong!?

^ Like, Radiohead was soooooooooo 1993!

Hey if you like Attention Please and all that shit (and have this distorted thought that it's their Kid A), i'm sure you liked the last couple of tours...I've stayed away in the meantime, but am happy to hear this tour announcement.

^ Actually, I've hardly had any interest in going back to any of those 4 albums in 2011 (2011 Heavy Rocks - ugh...), and wasn't impressed by the only opportunity I got to see them around that time. That's also the 1st time I've heard of a Kid A comparison.

That said, Pink and Heavy Rocks are where it's at for me, though.

Boris is awesome! Can't wait to see them play!

Wata is way out of your league, guys.

6:13, I take it you don't like or really know Pod, the Amps' Pacer, Title TK, Mountain Battles? If not, that makes me think you only know or like the singles from Last Splash, which makes me think you're outta your element.

Um, New Album is frikkin great, though.
