The almighty Boris are currently on tour in the Americas, supporting their most breakout record in the band’s monstrous, dynamic catalog, Smile. The praise of this release just does not stop flowing in… fans and critics of all realms of heavy/experimental/open-minded rock can’t get enough, as the band digs in on their most comprehensive North American tour to date.

This Saturday, June 28th, Boris’ video for the track ‘Statement’ – the single for the Smile album – will premier on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball, as hosted by Lamb of God! The show runs from 11 PM-1 AM on MTV2. Get ripped, tune in and rock out with our Southern Lord brethren amongst today’s major metal acts. More info at:
