Boris add individual dates to residency tour, consider purchasing American flag sweatpants

What are the qualifications for honorary citizenship in the United States? Without looking, it probably doesn’t include the distinctive ability and willingness to bring smoke-shrouded stoner rock and drone insanity to the masses, but Boris are certainly making an argument that it should. Time to take a backseat, people who have escaped war-torn countries and attempted to seek permanent refuge in the Land of the Free — we’re establishing different priorities now. If you aren’t a musician, and if your repertoire doesn’t include selectively hammering on a Zildjian gong à la Atsuo, then to the bottom of the waiting list you go. On the upside, celebrations of citizenship just acquired the potential to be a heckuva lot cooler.

Recall that Boris recently announced a residency tour, in which they’ll host consecutive performances (over two nights) in a few very lucky cities around the US. Preempting complaints from people who might feel their city unfairly neglected, the band just added some “one-off” dates, in which, according to a press release, they’ll perform classics generally, classics from their classic album Flood, and possible soon-to-be classics — songs set to make their national debut. Peruse the updated schedule below, and quietly admire the trio’s stamina.
