As BORIS wrap up their latest month-long North American tour with two California shows this week, they’re also prepare to join forces with several allies for their upcoming live work with ALTAR and BXI performances scheduled in New York.
First up, ALTAR (comprised of SUNN 0))) and BORIS as one group) will perform at the All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in Monticello, New York alongside Sleep, Iggy & The Stooges, Sonic Youth and countless more in a massive outdoor space. Two days later ALTAR will make another appearance, this time alongside the first official performance of BXI (BORIS and Ian Astbury of The Cult), which will all go down at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple, which has been inarguably dubbed “the loudest room in NYC,” and presented by All Tomorrow’s Parties and The Blackened Music Series.
The debut release from BXI is a 4-song self-titled EP, which was released by Southern Lord Recordings on August 17th. The EP is quickly surprising fans of both The Cult and BORIS, as well as journalists across the globe, and has listeners taking this new collaboration quite seriously, making this official first concert together an exceptionally special performance for the unit.
