BORIS to Tour with NINE INCH NAILS

Once a cult name in the doom scene, now becoming a household name… Japan’s BORIS just keep expanding their horizons and cementing their name into music on all levels. The outfit will once again traverse the Pacific to grace North America with their parameter-free rock experimentation, this time alongside NINE INCH NAILS. The tour will hit several Canadian cities and travel down through the Midwest over two weeks, with two Boris-only headlining shows in the mix.

This news comes immediately after BORIS‘ monolithic headlining appearance at the East Village Radio Festival at Manhattan’s South Street Seaport this month (see the full photo set here: http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2008/09/boris_ssseaport.html), as well as their most recent monumental headlining North American tour on their latest album Smile (review), the album that has set the band up as superstars in the press, radio, video and all forms of music media.

NAPALM DEATH: Purveyors of Fine Grind

Godfathers of grindcore, NAPALM DEATH, are still going strong after more than two decades of churning out loud, fast, conscious music. Their latest album, Smear Campaign, is a solid continuation of their perennial effort to unsettle the common individual’s mental indifference through the intensity of their words and music. Barking against the common “enemy” of religion, NAPALM DEATH, rile with the same ferocity in 2008 as they did in 1987. Frontman Barney Greenway took some time off their last U.S. tour to talk to APESHIT about their undying craft, conservatives in metal, the digital future of music, and more.
