Boris Announce Canadian-Friendly North American Tour, Hint at "Major Announcement"

Looking to do something a bit different this summer? Like, cause permanent damage your eardrums? If you do, we have good news: Japanese psychedelic/noise/doom/pop weirdoes Boris have announced North American tour dates for July and August.


 The tour, which starts in California on July 24, will see the band hitting the road first with Chicagoan instru-metallers Russian Circles, then with L.A. post-rockers Red Sparowes. The tour will culminate in the band's performance with Sunn O))), with the two together playing Altar, their 2006 collaborative album, in its entirety at the All Tomorrow's Parties fest on September 5.

And yep, there are some Canadian dates, including shows in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary.

Boris will release Chapter Ahead Being Fake, a split ten-inch with doom poppers Torche, on June 29. And, because one side of a split ten-inch isn't enough for rabid Boris fans, a recent press release states that a "major announcement" will be made soon regarding "several" new Boris releases.
