Boris’ “Pink” Anniversary Plans Include Deluxe Reissue & Tour With Earth


Boris will celebrate the tenth anniversary of their 2005 release “Pink” with a deluxe reissue of the effort and a U.S. tour of full-album performances of it. The deluxe edition will receive a July 08th release date via Sargent House and comes with 9 previously unreleased bonus tracks, here’s the official word on its content:

“The deluxe 3xLP box set and 2xCD features an entire album of previously unreleased tracks recorded during the Pink album sessions in 2004-2005. The bonus Forbidden Songs collects 9 tracks of the same hyperactive, accessible and aggressive caliber of the original album, available here for the first time, mixed (with additional editing and arrangement) in 2015 and mastered in January 2016.

Like the original U.S. vinyl release, the Pink (Deluxe Edition) LP set has three longer edits of songs that were truncated on the original CD issue (“Farewell“, “Pseudo-Bread” and “My Machine“). Otherwise, both the LP and CD versions have the same audio as the 2006 release. And, Pink (Deluxe Edition) also features the artwork of the original Japanese release, made by the band members themselves.”

The track listing for “Forbidden Songs” runs as follows:

01 – “Your Name Part 2
02 – “Heavy Rock Industry
03 – “Sofun
04 – “Non/Sha/Lant
05 – “Room Noise
06 – “Talisman
07 – “N.F.Sorrow
08 – “Are You Ready?
09 – “Tiptoe
