Official press release:
Southern Lord Records proudly announces an incredible collaboration between label artists Boris and Ian Asbury of The Cult and The Doors. This finely-crafted four-song mini release, simply entitled BXI, was tracked and mixed in Tokyo in late April. Asbury's vocals are a perfect match for Boris's straightforward, laid-back, but still raw and imaginative songwriting constructed for the EP; another intriguing display within the band's ever-morphing, extensive résumé of releases, tours and collaborations.
To see official CD, LP and digital release this September via Southern Lord, BXI will showcase the already unclassifiable rock of Boris in an entirely new light, and shows a new side one of rock and roll's most notorious singers. The release features three new original tracks, as well as a cover of The Cult's song "Rain," ethereally vocalized by Boris guitarist Wata. Art and design for the release was commissioned to Stephen O'Malley (Ideologic.org, SUNNO))), etc.).
Pitchfork briefly interrogated Boris drummer Atsuo about this collaboration this week. Check out this exclusive piece on the EP and find out how this collaboration came to light.
This past weekend, Ian Asbury made an unannounced appearance with Boris at the band's performance at Sydney, Australia's Vivid LIVE appearance, blowing fans away with this unexpected set which showcased some of the material from the BXI EP as well as a cover of the classic "The End", by The Doors.
