Boris have announced their second new album of 2022, and their third album to be called Heavy Rocks. On August 12, the group will release Heavy Rocks (2022) via Relapse. The first single is called “She Is Burning,” which you can hear below.

The group says in a statement: “The world has changed over the last two years. Everyone’s thinking is simpler and pragmatic. Now, it is easier for everyone to grasp what is important to each of us.

We leave it to the future and pass it on. The soul of rock music is constantly evolving. A soul that transcends words and meaning to reach you – instinct, intuition, and fangs.

This is the heavy rock of Boris now.

Check out the artwork and tracklist below, along with their upcoming tour dates.

Boris’ last album was W, released earlier this year. Their previous Heavy Rocks, the second to feature that title, was released in 2011.
