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.
