Last year, genre-defying heavy greats Boris released the awesome Dear and went on a 25th anniversary tour. This year, they're staying a bit quieter, but they'll be back in the US for the stacked Psycho Las Vegas (again) and they'll be playing LA and NYC shows around then.

The LA show is co-headlining with Melvins (who just dropped Pinkus Abortion Technician) and it happens on August 16 at Echoplex with support from WE Are The Asteroid and Permanent Records DJs (tickets).

The NYC show is on August 24 at Le Poisson Rouge and it's part of the venue's 10th anniversary celebration (tickets).

Other than that, Boris play collaborative sets with Merzbow in Tokyo and at Denmark's Roskilde Festival. All dates are listed below.
