Japan’s genre chameleons Boris will begin touring North America at the end of the month with a number of supporting acts. On August 3, they’ll be dropping into NYC’s Bowery Ballroom with the Atlas Moth and SubRosa. They’ve since added another NYC show happening day after, August 4 at Saint Vitus, where they’ll play a special “drumless drone” set with Youth Worship opening. Tickets for that show are available now.
Boris released their newest album, the summery and rocking Noise, in June. Youth Worship is the new project of former Asobi Seksu guitarist/vocalist James Hanna. The band released an EP, Youth Worship EP1, in January that pairs pop with overdriven guitars. They’ll also be playing Rough Trade NYC on August 14 with Weeknight and Bootblacks. Tickets for that show are available now, as well.
