BORIS: sign to Sacred Bones and announce new album ‘W’ for Jan 21st release. Hear “Drowning By Numbers” now.

As you know, if you are a regular to Declunk, that we like to bring you something a little different and new to us. So, read a little about Boris then have a listen and a watch.

In an effort to sublimate the negative energy surrounding everyone in 2020, legendary Japanese heavy rock band Boris focused all of their energy creatively and turned out the most extreme album of their long and widely celebrated career, ‘NO’. The band self-released the album in the height of lockdown, desiring to get it out as quickly as possible, but intentionally called the final track on the album “Interlude” while planning its follow-up. 
The follow-up comes with ‘W’, the band’s debut album for Sacred Bones Records, which is set for release on January 21st. The record opens with the same melody as “Interlude” in a piece entitled “I want to go to the side where you can touch…” and in contrast to the extreme sounds found on ‘NO,’ this new album whispers into the listener’s ear with a trembling hazy sound meant to awaken sensation.

‘W’s first single, “Drowning By Numbers” is out now alongside a spellbinding new music video.  Of the video, Boris comment: “This video was filmed at a private showcase with limited invitation in April of 2021.  It is a collaborative performance with a contemporary dance team.  The song was transformed from its original performance and visualized; a big hat dances symbolically at the beginning of the new album.”
