Boris: New Song By Japanese Noise Rock Trio And Details Of New Album

Japanese trio BORIS have just announced details about the imminent release of their first official album in three years, titled Noise. The band have also shared the first track, Quicksilver, off it – check it out below.

Noise will be released everywhere (excluding Japan) on LP, CD and download via Sargent House on June 17th, 2014 and we’re told it’ll be:

“…their most all-encompassing effort to date. Noise is an amplification of BORIS’ endless pursuit of musical extremes while moving aggressive, intense rock into new territories… (It’s) something more bold, streamlined and powerful (than their previous “over 20 albums covering a vast array of sounds”).”

The band consider Noise to be their most defining effort, stating:

“If we had to suggest just one album for those unfamiliar with BORIS’ music, we will pick this for sure.”

We’re also told that throughout the album’s 8 song, 58 minute duration, the band “masterfully intermingle sludge-rock, blistering crust punk, shimmering shoegaze, epic thunderous doom, psychedelic melodies and just about everything else they’ve ever done”.

Returning to their roots again in early 2013 by playing once again as the original trio they’re now heavier, louder, more confident and more incisive than ever before.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
