Boris announce 10th anniversary of ‘Pink’

BORIS announce 10th anniversary 'Pink' album deluxe reissue on Sargent House, available on July 8th on Vinyl and CD.

Japanese trio Boris announce the 10th anniversary deluxe reissue of Pink today and have premiered one of 9 previously unreleased tracks. Boris will launch a full U.S. headlining tour in July in which they will perform Pink in its entirety. The band’s new Sargent House labelmates Earth will play all dates except two in Canada. Please see complete dates below.

The deluxe 3xLP box set and 2xCD features an entire album of previously unreleased tracks recorded during the Pink album sessions in 2004-2005. The bonus Forbidden Songs collects 9 tracks of the same hyperactive, accessible and aggressive caliber of the original album, available here for the first time, mixed (with additional editing and arrangement) in 2015 and mastered in January 2016. Like the original U.S. vinyl release, the Pink (Deluxe Edition) LP set has three longer edits of songs that were truncated on the original CD issue (“Farewell”, “Pseudo-Bread” and “My Machine”). Otherwise, both the LP and CD versions have the same audio as the 2006 release. And, Pink (Deluxe Edition) also features the artwork of the original Japanese release, made by the band members themselves.

In 2006, Pink was Boris’ 10th album and a major breakthrough that earned new fans outside of the underground metal community — the track “Farewell” was even featured in Jim Jarmusch’s classic film The Limits of Control. The album landed on countless “best of the year” lists from underground metal sites to mainstream rock magazines. And the praise was certainly well deserved for its more accessible sound and explorations into shoegaze and ambient structures alongside brutal noise, searing psychedelia and apocalyptic doom.

Pink (Deluxe Edition) will be available everywhere (excluding Japan) on July 8th on 3xLP box set, 2xCD and download via Sargent House.
