Formidable Japanese drone/noise terrorists Boris make their NZ debut with two shows in late March.

Emerging from the Japanese hardcore scene in the mid nineties, Boris have since shed any predictable genre expectations and embraced everything from sludge metal and psychedelic rock to ambient noise and straight-up pop. They have collaborated with The Cult's Ian Astbury, film director Jim Jarmusch, Nine Inch Nails, Sun O))) and fellow Japanese eardrum botherer Merzbow.

With a career now 17 albums deep the band have reached the enviable position of critical acclaim alongside creative fecundity – releasing three albums last year alone. Releases are either as boris (experimental) or BORIS (rock) but live they segue seamlessly between the two.

Drummer Atsuo Mizuno is recognised as one of the world's greatest drummers and often ends shows by banging his gong, climbing up onto the speaker stacks and hurling himself into the audience. Lead vocalist Takeshi trades blissed-out, fuzzed-up riffs on his double-neck guitar-bass combo with guitarist and sometime vocalist Wata.
