Boris already released two songs off the upcoming Dear, which drops next week (7/14) via Sargent House, and now the whole thing is here to stream. Lead single “Absolutego” showed off Boris’ sludge side while second single “Memento Mori” was a more atmospheric rocker, and Dear doesn’t stop there. The band reportedly wrote three albums worth of new material but scaled it down to the ten songs that ended up on Dear, and it shows off many sides of this impossible-to-pin-down band. Listen to the album at NPR.

As mentioned, Boris are going on a 25th anniversary tour with an assortment of killer openers on various dates: Torche, Sumac, Subrosa, Mutoid Man, Thou, Helms Alee, and Endon.

The run with Mutoid Man and Endon hits Brooklyn on November 1 at Warsaw (tickets). Boris also play some cool festivals, including Sound on Sound, Desert Daze, and Days of Darkness. All dates are listed below.
