Boris, quickly becoming the most prolific band of all time, announce European summer tour

This summer, Japanese experimental metal gods Boris will be allying with new Sargent House labelmates Russian Circles for a tour of drone, destruction, and Europe Europe Europe!!!! 2011 looks to be a hectic year for Boris, and the upcoming tour looks like it’ll be nothing to sniff at either. LA-based Sargent House is slated to release Boris’ 16th album Heavy Rocks AND their 17th album Attention Please, both on May 24 (the release dates for both albums were pushed back from a previously planned April date). The group’s 15th album, simply known as New Album, was released on CD via Tearbridge, and on LP via Daymare. This album is not expected to be released outside of Japan.

Lest you think they’re getting soft, allow me to inform you that Boris also released another album in Japan earlier this year with Merzbow. It’s called Klatter and it’s the sixth collabo between Boris and Merzbow. Originally slated for release on Troubleman Unlimited back in 2007 (which didn’t happen, for mysterious — or just plain not available on Wikipedia — reasons), the album is limited to a single pressing of 1,000 copies.
