BORIS: From the Past, The Present and Through to the Future - Flood
BORIS: From the Past, The Present and Through to the Future - Flood
Boris are playing two special back-to-back nights in select cities. Tonight will be a performance the cult classic album "Flood" and their noise/drone/experimental set. This evening will also include many songs that have never been performed in the US.

Boris has earned its rabid cult following for their ability to expertly harness music as power. Be it psychedelic metal, colossal drone, blistering punk or distortion-ravaged shoegaze, a Boris song is an exploration of sound as physical mass.

Based out of San Francisco, CA, Deafheaven started as an isolated project between frontman George LeSage and guitarist Kerry M. After sending the demo to various blogs and receiving overwhelmingly positive reception, they accepted offers to play live shows and added members of Whirl and Temple Of Saturn to form the quintet that today tours as Deafheaven. On July 29th, 2010, Deafheaven played their first show, marking the unofficial genesis of their rise to Bay Area prominence.

Their music is described as "A dizzying hybrid of shoegaze shimmer, hardcore punk passion, emo vulnerability, and black metal intensity." They have cited a wide range of musical influences, including, but not limited to, Morbid Angel, The Smiths, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Orchid and My Bloody Valentine.
