Boris and Uniform Announce Collaborative Album ‘Bright New Disease’, Share New Single

    Sacred Bones labelmates Boris and Uniform have announced new collaborative album, Bright New Disease. It drops June 16. To accompany the announcement, they’ve shared the lead single ‘You Are the Beginning’, which was written by Boris. Listen to it and check out the LP’s cover art and tracklist below.

    ”You Are the Beginning’ took shape on the first day of the bands’ studio sessions in July 2020. “At that time, we didn’t know when we would be able to resume concerts,” Boris’ Atsuo recalled in a press release. “And our wish became the song directly.”

    “On tour, we learned more about the depth of their musicality, which we felt was compatible with our own expression,” Atsuo said, while Takeshi added of Uniform: “They are a band that can be described in many ways — punk, metal, industrial — but they truly excel because they are not locked into any style. They are always experimenting and innovating.”

    Uniform vocalist Michael Berdan commented: “Uniform have been longtime fans and admirers of Boris. Supporting them on tour was a dream come true.” Guitarist and producer Ben Greenberg added: “Wata is one of my favorite guitar players ever, so I’m very stoked we got two dueling solo tracks on this record.”

    “In the end, it sounds like the crystalized essence of both bands at the heights of their creative abilities,” Berdan continued. “It is a testament of friendship and hope in the face of a world on fire.”
