Boris will begin to archive past limited releases on their Bandcamp page.
In July, among the turmoil of the Coronavirus sweeping the world, Boris suddenly dropped their new album NO as a Bandcamp-only release, which garnered a tremendous response as the band themselves are trying to find a new means of communication with listeners in times of the Coronavirus.
Tomorrow, and over the course of several months, the archiving of Boris past limited releases will take place on their Bandcamp. They’ll start off appropriately with the “Archive” series, 3 live album CD’s released in 2005 from the US label, “aRCHIVE,” limited to 600 copies that sold out immediately.
These 3 live albums were reissued as “Archive I” (Vol. 1, 2, & 3) along with “Archive II” (Vol. 4, 5, & 0) in 2014. Both sets of 3 CDs each were limited rereleases of 1,000 copies, and thus quite difficult to obtain.
Boris’s early demo tape recordings, as well as a compilation of at the time unreleased live recordings spanning “Heavy Rocks,” ”Akuma no Uta,” “dronevil -final-,” “mabuta no ura,” up through “PINK” can be found on “Archive II.”
These 6 CD’s worth of material, labeled as Boris “Archive” Volume Zero to Five, are a total of 6 releases. Getting a glimpse at a piece of the band from the Boris Book of Genesis to the present, these are some precious recordings indeed.
