Yamantaka Eye (of Boredoms) joins noise-rock duo Gagakirise to satisfy our unspoken collaborative desires

It’s very possible that Gagakirise have avoided your attention until now, because in addition to having never released an album on an American label or in any context that didn’t require the “limited” qualifier, the duo has also remained firmly entrenched in the Japanese underground, rendering chaos to citizens and sentient beings in the Earth’s mantle alike. They certainly have toured internationally, at least one time in the fitting company of Brian Chippendale, but otherwise, guitarist Sachio Yoshizawa and drummer Ryo Inoue have seemingly been content keeping things geographically close. They’re more familiar with noise ordinances in their home country. Still though, can we please get someone to coax these frenetic renegades elsewhere, so that we all might benefit?

Oh, well thank you, Thrill Jockey, and thanks to arguable Boredoms frontman Yamantaka Eye (or EYE) as well for helping to produce an exponentially-increased risk of neck pains due to home head-banging. Gagakiriseye is out August 21 as a limited-edition 7-inch, and it supplementally marks Eye’s first new (disseminated) studio recording in over five years. Boredoms as a whole hasn’t been up to too much these days, and we were all starting to wonder when we’d hear sufficiently manic vocals outside of Keiji Haino. Looks like Eye might’ve done the cover art as well, though don’t quote me on that.
