This year, 2022, marks the 30th year anniversary of Boris as a band. The band’s first live event to commemorate this occasion will also be their first show in front of a live audience in one year and three months. The band will perform their cult-classic album “Heavy Rocks” live with TOKIE, one of Japan’s leading bassists.
After their collaborations on last year’s single “Reincarnation Rose” and Boris’s latest album “W” earlier this year, Boris and TOKIE team up again to give a fresh, new perspective to a batch of songs from 20 years prior. This event will certainly be a special night, fitting of the Boris 30th anniversary year.

Borisの結成30周年にあたる2022年、様々なイヴェントが計画されている。コロナ禍で思い通りのライブ活動が出来ない昨今、今年初の国内ライブを発表。彼らのカルト・クラッシックス・アルバム『Heavy Rocks』を日本を代表するベーシストのTOKIEと共に披露する。昨年のシングル『Reincarnation Rose』、新作アルバム『W』とコラボレートした両者が再びチームアップし、20年を経た楽曲群を新たに描く。世界のロック史と日本のロック史が交差するスペシャルライブ、お見逃しなく。

From March 2022 Boris resumes archive releases on Bandcamp.

The first installment of the 4th season of the Boris Bandcamp archive is “1985”, which was sold only in limited vinyl format for members of the then-newly established Boris fan club in 2019, “heavy rock party”. Now the album is available digitally for the first time.

BandcampアーカイブSeason4第一弾は、2019年にオープンしたBorisファンクラブ”heavy rock party”のメンバーに向け、限定Vinylのみで販売していた音源『1985』をデジタルで解禁。

“1985” is an original album that remained unreleased for a long time. It was recorded during the same period as our 2011-released “New Album”.

In 2011 we announced 3 separate albums, each layering various trials of what we imagined as “heavy”. With these various expressive styles, it was a time when we expanded the possibilities of our own Heavy Rock. After completing the 3 albums, we made use of methods outside of our usual environment of amplified sound resonating in the room. We experimented with direct recording that made use of MIDI, synth guitar, electric drums, and so on. We remember that clearly.
“1985” is the 4th album of ours that was unreleased.

In 2019 we launched our first official fan club, “heavy rock party”, and “1985” was only sold as a limited edition vinyl release around Christmas time as a present to fan club members. Now it is available for the first time in high-resolution digital format.

This is a work that gave us a sense of having expanded the map of sound, discovering another layer, and opening up an unseen passage that was not known to the outside world. We’d also like you to listen to this electronic inclination that has accumulated in Boris as a connection to our latest album, “W”.

『1985』は2011年にリリースした『New Album』と同時期にレコーディングを行い、長い間未発表となっていたオリジナル・スタジオアルバム。

2011年は3枚のアルバムを発表した年であり、自分たちの思い描く”Heavy”をキーワードに様々な試みをを重ね、その表現方法を更新、Heavy Rockの可能性を拡張していった時期だった。3枚を完成させた後に、MIDI、シンセギター、電子ドラム等を用いながら、空気を介さない音楽実験に取り組んでいた、そんな記憶がある。

2019年、初のオフィシャル・ファンクラブ”heavy rock party”が発足し、『1985』はクリスマスに”ファンクラブ・メンバーへのプレゼント”として限定Vinylのみで販売。今回はハイレゾリューション・デジタルフォーマットでの解禁となる。

本日、2曲入りのクリスマス・シングル「Noël」Sacred Bonesからリリース。これはBandcampでの独占販売となります。このシングルには、ロンドン在住のSSW、Lauren Auderとフランス人プロデューサーDvianceにより新構築された「Pardon?」(Borisの2011年のアルバム『New Album』より)と、BorisによるWham!のカヴァー「Last Chrismas」を収録。
今年リリース10周年を迎えた『New Album』、このアルバムに影響されたというLaurenとDviance二人との長きに渡る繋がりがここに実を結ぶ。
そしてこれは、COVID-19による様々な制約の中で生活している世界中の皆さんへのクリスマス・プレゼント。今年のクリスマスがCOVID-19下での “ラスト・クリスマス “になることを願っています。

Today Boris have shared a two-track Christmas single entitled ‘Noël’, released via Sacred Bones and available exclusively through Bandcamp. The release includes a striking rework of Boris track “Pardon?” by Lauren Auder and Dviance, as well as Boris’ take on the Wham! festive classic, “Last Christmas”.

Boris’ ‘New Album’ celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, and ‘Noël’ sees the delicate crescendo of “Pardon?” given an ethereal, airy rework by London-based singer-songwriter Lauren Auder and French producer Dviance. Auder’s haunting vocals tie with crisp beats and layered strings to create a rich and elegant take on the original track.

This is a Christmas present for everyone who lives with the various restrictions stemming from COVID-19. Here in Japan, it is customary to give gifts at Christmas. We hope this Christmas will be the “Last Christmas” of COVID-19.
