Boris have announced a new album, Heavy Rocks (2022), the latest in their Heavy Rocks series. It’s out August 12 via Relapse Records. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘She Is Burning’, alongside an accompanying video. Check it out below, and scroll down for the album cover and tracklist, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates.
Boris shared the following statement about the new album:
The world has changed over the last two years. Everyone’s thinking is simpler and pragmatic. Now, it is easier for everyone to grasp what is important to each of us.
We leave it to the future and pass it on. The soul of rock music is constantly evolving. A soul that transcends words and meaning to reach you – instinct, intuition, and fangs.
This is the heavy rock of Boris now.
As we land on our 30th anniversary, Boris continues to evolve, accelerating the latest and universal.
Boris does not lead anyone anywhere.
We just keep showing this attitude.
Boris issued their latest album, W, last year via Sacred Bones.
