Boris reissuing ‘Pink’ with bonus disc; hear a new track

Posted by on May 9, 2016

borispinkJapanese metal legends Boris are prepping to reissue their 2006 classic, Pink, to celebrate the album’s tenth anniversary. Included with the reissue is an unreleased nine-track album of songs recorded during the Pink sessions. Pitchfork has the premiere of “Are You Ready?” from the Forbidden Songs bonus album, and it’s exactly what you’d expect from this era of the band – red-hot leads screaming over louder-than-life riffs, all backed by a steady rock beat (I can’t get enough of that tambourine).  You can get your mitts on the reissue July 8 via Sargent House.

The band also set dates for a tour where they will be performing Pink in full with support from drone/doom rockers Earth (in the U.S. only). You can see those dates below the track.
