Prolific, constantly evolving Japanese doom/sludge metal band Boris have announced a new album. On July 3, the group will release NO via Bandcamp—as of yet no information about physical editions of the album have been announced, and it’s being released completely D.I.Y. without any label support. The group have shared a new track titled “Loveless.” And once again it’s a new shift for the group; contrary to the title, it’s not a My Bloody Valentine homage, but rather a meaty hybrid of crust-punk and noise rock. It’s pretty badass. Hear it below, and check out the album’s tracklist.
The band released a statement about the album: “All kinds of anxieties, fear, sadness, anger, and hatred have arisen to drive the world apart.
Boris’ last album was 2019’s LφVE & EVφL.
