Boris: Flood performances and tour-only release (adjusted)

Remember a week ago when I was being a crybaby about Boris skipping Philadelphia during their upcoming Residency tour? Well, they've given in: David Clifford of Us/Them & Sargent House sent along a revised tour schedule with additional shows now padding the remaining Residency shows. Philadelphia is now one of the stops (yay) so... Sorry I called you guys "dicks."  No hard feelings?

Legendary Japanese trio Boris have added extra single-night headlining dates surrounding their special series of US residency shows in several major markets beginning in late April in addition to Austin Psych Fest on the 27th of that month. 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. These additional one-off dates will combine all-time classics with part of Flood and other songs' US debut. Throughout the tour, Boris will once again perform in their classic trio lineup without any support musicians. Please see updated 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.

Letters From A Tapehead


Unknown said…
i've seen boris about a dozen times, and really miss the olden days (circa 2005)... i miss the drone set and i LOVE "Flood". it was the first Boris i ever heard. i would give my left nut to get to go to one of those second-day shows, but denver is where i'll see them... i wonder what the one-day shows will be. probably the new, less-to-my-liking, faster shit...
anybody know if they might be doing "Flood" for their one-day shows? ...i wish i could write them a letter to beg them to do that for their Denver show...
