Boris: Announcements regarding Japan and upcoming albums...

Obviously, there’s little else that matters as Japan continues to undergo the hardships following March 11th’s earthquake. Boris, though, is one of those wonderful things that Japan has given us, so as fans we're happy to have received the following statement from the band.

Boris issues statement regarding tragedy in Japan, album delays

Iconoclast Japanese trio Boris have released a statement regarding the tragic events in Japan over the past several days. The full statement is as follows:

Boris expresses our condolences to everyone who passed away because of current unexpected earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan, and also our deepest sympathies for all of the people who have a hard time. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

"All Boris members, our families and staff are safe now. Thank you very much for kind words and thoughtful messages.


Additionally, due to circumstances beyond the control of both Boris and Sargent House, the release date for the band's two new full length albums,
Attention Please and the all-new Heavy Rocks have been pushed back to May 24th, 2011.

Both albums will be released on the same day worldwide (excluding Japan) via Sargent House. Further details to come.
