BORIS announce EU & UK tour performingPink album in its entirety
10th anniversary Pink (Deluxe Edition) reissue out now on Sargent House worldwide (excluding Japan)
“Groundbreaking metal album gets a mesmerically expansive reissue. A-” — Consequence of Sound
Pink was prescient in how metal would rethink what it meant to be heavy, with metallic shoegaze butting up against feedback-sick drone and glittery punk.” — NPR
Japanese trio Boris today announce that they will bring their just completed North American tourBoris Performing Pink to Europe and the UK this Fall. The band is touring in support of the 10th anniversary Pink (Deluxe Edition) reissue, released in July on Sargent House. Please see current dates below.
NPR previously premiered “SOFUN” HERE. Pitchfork announced the release with “Are You Ready?” HERE. The complete Pink (Deluxe Edition) is available to hear and share via Bandcamp.
Pink, the landmark 2006 album by Boris, which earned widespread critical praise — including Pitchfork’s Top 10 Albums of 2006 — was reissued in an expanded edition for the album’s 10th anniversary.
The deluxe 3xLP box set and 2xCD features an entire album of previously unreleased tracks recorded during the Pink album sessions in 2004-2005. The bonus Forbidden Songs collects 9 tracks of the same hyperactive, accessible and aggressive caliber of the original album, available here for the first time, mixed (with additional editing and arrangement) in 2015 and mastered in January 2016.
In 2006, Pink was Boris’ 10th album and a major breakthrough that earned new fans outside of the underground metal community — the track “Farewell” was even featured in Jim Jarmusch’s classic film The Limits of Control. The album landed on countless “best of the year” lists from underground metal sites to mainstream rock magazines. And the praise was certainly well deserved for its more accessible sound and explorations into shoegaze and ambient structures alongside brutal noise, searing psychedelia and apocalyptic doom.
Boris is now in their 24th year as a band — 20 years in the classic trio lineup — and showing no signs of slowing down. They have always demolished expectations of what a band can do musically and aesthetically. And in looking back with Pink (Deluxe Edition), the band’s trajectory as experimenters and innovators over subsequent releases becomes even clearer.
Pink (Deluxe Edition) was released everywhere (excluding Japan) on July 8th on 3xLP box set, 2xCD and download via Sargent House. iTunes orders HERE, 3xLP box set and 2xCD editions are available via Hello Merch.
