Press Release provided by Sargent House & US/THEM group //

Boris kick off US dates including residency tour performing Flood album &  all-time classics 
Plus, Austin Psych Fest April 27th 

Legendary Japanese trio Boris launch the first of their single-night headlining dates surrounding their special series of US residency shows in several major markets today. The band also play Austin Psych Fest this Saturday, April 27th. The residency tour, billed as "from the past, the present and through to the future" features Boris playing 2 consecutive nights in each city. For the first night, the band will perform its all-time classics along with many new songs never before played in the US. The second night's set features most of Boris' cult classic album Flood along with a noise/drone/experimental set. The additional one-off dates will combine all-time classics with part of Flood and other songs' US debut. Throughout the tour, Boris will once again perform in their classic trio lineup without any support musicians. Please see all dates below. 

Nearly all of the 2-show pass packages are already sold out in each market, but tickets for each individual night's performances are available while supplies last. 

Boris will also sell a limited edition tour-only release available only at the merch table. Watch/share tour video teaser HERE

Iconoclast trio Boris are widely known for their ability to breach styles and stretch sonic boundaries of all that is heavy, psychedelic, droning and downright cathartic. Their last three albums -- Attention Please, Heavy Rocks and New Album, all released in 2011 via Sargent House -- are perfect testament to the band's vast abilities. Over the span of two decades, the trio, bassist/vocalist Takeshi, guitarist/vocalist Wata and drummer/vocalist Atsuo has issued nearly 20 studio albums, as well as numerous collaborative albums -- including projects with Merzbow, Sunn0))), Ian Astbury and Michio Kurihara of Ghost (who also recently toured with the band as second guitarist) -- EPs and singles on various labels throughout the world.
