Most recently seen on our shores in 2010 playing two sold out shows at Sydney’s Vivid Festival, Japanese quartet Boris will be returning to Australia to visit the entire east coast in March, 2012.
Formed in the early ’90s as a four piece just-for-fun endeavor with the sonic template of influences like Melvins and Earth, Boris hit its stride when they released their 1996 debut as a trio Absolutego. The group quickly developed a reputation for ground-rattling heavy, melodic music and went on to release nearly 20 studio albums, as well as numerous collaborative albums, EPs and singles on various labels throughout the world.
Their new album (aptly titled New Album) features a few new tracks and handful of revamped versions of songs from 2011’s previous releases Attention Please and Heavy Rocks. Due later this year, it serves as the perfect precursor to the band’s upcoming Australian tour.
