Boris: Flood performances and tour-only release

Today in "sucks to be you, Philadelphia" news, it was announced today that Boris will carrying out a small tour of the U.S. featuring performances of their album, Flood, in its entirety.  Naturally, because Philadelphia isn't a music city by any stretch, the band will not be stopping here.  Adding insult to injury, a tour-only exclusive release will be sold during the tour.

All info comes courtesy of Us/Them Group and I'm not at all bitter.

Legendary Japanese trio Boris announce a series of US headlining residency shows in several major markets following their performance at Austin Psych Fest in late April. The residency tour, billed as "from the past, the present and through to the future" features Boris playing 2 consecutive nights in each city. For the first night, the band will perform its all-time classics along with many new songs never before played in the US. The second night's set features most of Boris' cult classic album
Flood along with a noise/drone/experimental set. Please see all current dates below.

Boris will also sell a limited edition tour-only release available only at the merch table. Watch/share tour video teaser HERE.

Iconoclast trio Boris are widely known for their ability to breach styles and stretch sonic boundaries of all that is heavy, psychedelic, droning and downright cathartic. Their last three albums --
Attention Please, Heavy Rocks and New Album, all released in 2011 via Sargent House -- are perfect testament to the band's vast abilities. Over the span of two decades, the trio, bassist/vocalist Takeshi, guitarist/vocalist Wata and drummer/vocalist Atsuo has issued nearly 20 studio albums, as well as numerous collaborative albums -- including projects with Merzbow, Sunn0))), Ian Astbury and Michio Kurihara of Ghost (who also currently tours with the band as second guitarist) -- EPs and singles on various labels throughout the world.
