Boris, the iconic Tokyo trio who have made some of the world’s heaviest music for three decades now, have celebrated the 30-year anniversary as a band with a prolific 2022: beginning with the eclectic W in January, continuing with the bracing hardcore of Heavy Rocks in August, and culminating today (December 2) with fade, out today under the very sneaky moniker of boris (with a lower-case “b.”)

(Today, for the final time this year, Bandcamp is foregoing their profit share, meaning 100 percent of all purchases on the site will go directly to the artists.) Listen below.
