BORIS ANNOUNCE ‘LφVE & EVφL’ & NORTH AMERICAN TOUR IN CELEBRATION

LφVE & EVφL will be released via Third Man Records in August. Re-issues of Boris’s Akuma no Uta andFeedbacker are forthcoming.


Boris have never been one for sentimentality—they simply wave goodbye to old worlds in favor of new horizons. That’s exactly the logic behind the band’s two forthcoming reissues of Akuma No Uta and Feedbacker, which will be released via Third Man Records this year, marking a new partnership between the band and label. The batch of reissues also makes way for Boris's first new album in two years: LφVE & EVφL, due out this August on Third Man. The pioneering, monolithic trio will also be hitting the road with NYC industrialists Uniform this fall - tour dates are listed below.

LφVE & EVφL exist as two independent works, encapsulating conflicting connotations that interweave and become intricately entangled with one another, gradually eroding before becoming utterly singular. Continuing to tinker and toil with their sound since the release of DEAR, Boris have pivoted onward a more organic, non-grid literary style that LφVE & EVφL showcases.

Boris was formed in 1992, culminating in the current lineup of Takeshi, Wata, and Atsuo just three years later. Even in their infancy, the members of Boris boldly explored their own vision of heavy music, where words like “explosive” and “thunderous” barely do justice. Using overpowering soundscapes embellished with copious amounts of lighting and billowing smoke, Boris has shared with audiences across the planet an experience for all five senses in their concerts, earning legions of zealous fans along the way.

LφVE & EVφL will be released this August on double LP and digital formats via Third Man Records, with the reissue details to follow. Stay tuned for more news to come.
