Boris Release Heavy Rocks LP

Boris

The legendary Boris celebrate a 30 year career as one of experimental music’s most forward-thinking, heavy, and innovative bands with the new album Heavy Rocks (2022) out now on Relapse Records.

Additionally, Boris begin their Summer US tour dates with Philadelphia’s Nothing this month! The tour kicks off after their performances at Psycho Las Vegas, and runs through late August and September. Includes a festival performance at Post Festival in Indianapolis. A full tour schedule is available below and tickets are on sale now here.

Heavy Rocks (2022) is out now on LP/CD/CS/Digital. Physical orders are available via Relapse.com HERE and Digital Downloads/Streaming HERE.

Heavy Rocks (2022), 10 pulse-pounding tracks, highlight the very trajectory of BORIS and their storied career – from the driving, fuzzed out Rock N’ Roll opener “She is burning”, to the punk, raucous “My name is blank”, BORIS are heavier than ever before. “Question 1” is just kickass – D-beats give way to a doomed, spaced out and heavier-than-anything guitar wailing and feedback, before diving back into their Metal, sending the listener into a complete frenzy. This is unmistakably BORIS, and this is the band at the height of their powers.

Elsewhere on the record, a more daring, “out there” side of the band begins to shine on tracks such as the aptly titled “Blah Blah Blah”, the industrial “Ghostly imagination” and the truly wild “Nosferatou”. Noisy passages (not unlike prior collaborations with legendary artists like Merzbow,) collide with visceral vocal howls while a relentless, almost Zornian-saxophone shreds harder than any guitar solo ever could.

In 2022, BORIS cement what Heavy Rock means to them, and release one of their most captivating records to date.
