Boris @ Knitting Factory (amy.bee)
BORIS @ The Knit

July 10th At Webster Hall. That's your THIRD chance in under a year for these Japan natives. Tickets go on sale Sat 4/26 at noon. Hopefully we can look forward to more blistering solos from Kurihara to counter those blistering solos from Wata.

Boris' new album Smile is out soon on Southern Lord, and the guys are offering three different versions, not including the awesome version that they are offering through their Japanese label.

Prefixmag recently posted an interview with Atsuo.

In related news, Boris's labelmates and drone-doom predecessors Earth are playing a show at the Knitting Factory that you can get into for FREE! Similar to the Boris promotion earlier in the year, here are the deets:
