The band commented:

“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.

As we land on our 30th anniversary, Boris continues to evolve, accelerating the latest and universal.

Boris does not lead anyone anywhere.
We just keep showing this attitude.”

Boris Premiere “Beyond Good And Evil” Music Video

Boris have premiered a new video for their new song “Beyond Good And Evil.” This track is from the band’s new album “W,” which will be released on January 21. The group said the following:

“There is a vast magnitude in a huge mushroom cloud and in decaying ruins. We feel both the sadness and beauty of these things at the same time; that is who we are. This video was made from the perspective of a mushroom cloud. The album ‘W‘ focuses on Wata’s vocals – and she is from HIROSHIMA.”

Boris Release New Christmas Single “Noël”

Boris have released a new Christmas single titled “Noël.” The effort, which can be found on Bandcamp, features Lauren Auder and Dviance’s rendition of “Pardon?” and a cover of Wham!‘s “Last Christmas.“

Boris commented:

“When Lauren Auder replied to our post and told us ‘I love this album very much,’ we were very excited. We really like Lauren‘s voice, atmosphere, music and video work. We replied back that we would like to work together someday soon. ‘New Album’ is an album that has received various criticisms before, however, like Lauren, we also happen to love this album very much. Now, ten years later, we have asked Lauren to sing a new interpretation from it.”

Auder added:

“I’ve been a long-time fan of Boris‘s work and ‘New Album’ has been particularly influential on my musical style. When this came up, Atsuo from the band proposed I take a shot at making a new version of the track. I was at the time working on my debut full length with my long-time co-writer Dviance and knowing how much he has also been inspired by Boris‘s work it only made sense for us to work on this one together. I’m extremely excited for this to have come together and hoping to continue this collaboration in the future.”

This news comes as Boris are preparing to release their new album “W” on January 21.

Boris Premiere “Drowning By Numbers” Video

Boris have premiered a new video for their new song “Drowning By Numbers.” This track is from the band’s new album “W,” which will be released on January 21. The group said the following about the video:

“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.”

“W” Track Listing:

01. “I Want To Go To The Side Where You Can Touch…”
02. “Icelina”
03. “Drowning By Numbers”
04. “Invitation”
