Japanese quartet Boris have announced a run of tour dates in March 2012 backing up their 2 sold-out shows at Sydney’s Vivid Festival in 2010.
Boris have long been celebrated for their ability to reinterpret a multitude of musical genres into a sound of their own, and revered for rattling concert-goers to the core, with their high-volume intensity and colossal crescendos.
Formed in the early ’90s as a four-piece just-for-fun endeavor with the sonic template of influences like Melvins and Earth, Boris hit its stride when they released their 1996 debut as a trio Absolutego. The group quickly developed a reputation for ground-rattling heavy, melodic music and went on to release nearly 20 studio albums, as well as numerous collaborative albums, EPs and singles on various labels throughout the world.
