[News] Boris published the official video for “Beyond Good And Evil” from upcoming album

On January 21, 2022, Boris will unleash their new full length effort “W” through Sacred Bones Records. Before the record officially comes out, the Japanese trio present a video clip for the second and last single “Beyond Good And Evil“. Watch the official video through the YouTube player below:

In an effort to sublimate the negative energy surrounding everyone in 2020, legendary Japanese Heavy Rock band Boris focused all of their energy creatively and turned out the most extreme album of their long and widely celebrated career, “NO.” The band self-released the album, desiring to get it out as quickly as possible but intentionally called the final track on the album “Interlude” while planning its follow-up.  

The follow-up comes with “W“, the band’s debut album for Sacred Bones Records. The record opens with the same melody as “Interlude” in a piece titled “I want to go to the side where you can touch…” and in contrast to the extreme sounds found on “NO“, this new album whispers into the listener’s ear with a trembling hazy sound meant to awaken sensation. 

On all of “W” Wata carries the lead vocal duties. In general the styles on the album range from noise to new age, as is typical with one of our generation’s most dynamic and adventurous bands, but there is a thread of melodic deliberation through each song that successfully accomplishes the band’s goal of eliciting deep sensation. Be it through epic sludgey riffs, angelic vocal reverberations or the seduction of their off-kilter percussion, Boris will have you fully under their spell. This languid and liquifying sound is perfectly represented in the beautiful Kotao Tomozawa cover art and in suGar yoshinaga’s sound production. 

Pre-ordes are open on the label’s website: https://www.sacredbonesrecords.com/products/sbr287-boris-w
