BORIS Share New Song & N. America Tour Dates


(By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Senior Writer/Editor, RiffRelevant.com)

Japanese alternative/stoner rock band Boris are celebrating their 25th anniversary of existence with a new release.   

Originally intended as a “farewell” album, the band found themselves revitalized during the writing process and ultimately ended up with at least three records of material. They began whittling that down and eventually decided on the 10 cuts comprising the upcoming ‘Dear (due July 14th via Sargent House).

Memento Mori‘, a new single from the band’s imminent twenty-second studio release, is streaming below. The psyche-infused doom song is a slowly unfurled piece of atmospherically augmented heaviness.

Drummer Atsuo Mizuno and guitarists/vocalists Wata and Takeshi Ohtani have created a tune that ripples with unseen menace beneath its pleasing haze of melodic mellowness.

Pre-orders for physical copies of Dear are going on here, while digital downloads are available via iTunes.

This fall, Boris will tour the U.S. and Canada in support of the album, playing shows with Torche, Mutoid Man, Sumac, Endon, Helms Alee, Thou and more. Find their complete itinerary below.
