Japanese noise rock projects Boris and Merzbow have announced their new collaborative album, ‘2R0I2P0,’ which is set to drop next Friday, December 11th through Relapse Records (pre-order: label + digital). To celebrate the news, Boris and Merzbow have shared their cover of the Melvins song “Boris” in music video form — check it out below.
“An album that is at once familiar and unique for its time, melodic and harsh in equal parts, 2R0I2P0 aims to find sonic harmony. After all, 2R0I2P0 translates to “Twenty Twenty R.I.P.”,” notes a press release. Boris adds, “This year was a period of trial for everyone in the world. This work becomes a monument to the requiem of the previous era. From here, a new world begins again.”
“The 10 track album showcases every bit of the excitement and pulse-pounding rock and metal heard throughout the inimitable, expansive BORIS catalog, as it meets the signature harsh noise and soundscapes of the equally prolific MERZBOW,” adds the presser regarding the upcoming effort, which, once again, drops on December 11th through Relapse Records (pre-order: label + digital) — check out the track listing and cover art below.
