Boris - Phenomenons Drive 12" MLP

[Boris]

Takeshi - Vocal, Bass & Guitar
Wata - Vocal, Guitar & Echo
Atsuo - Vocal, Drums, Percussion & Electronics

Boris formed in 1992, and eventually arrived at the band’s current lineup of Takeshi, Wata, and Atsuo into ’96. In the 27 years since, Boris has tirelessly explored their own rendition of what is heavy through methods entirely their own, continually creating, destroying, deepening, and transforming their music along the way. Though the depths of their “heaviness” may intensify, their unique musicianship defies classification in any one genre or style as it heads towards realms that cannot be described simply in terms of explosive sound or thunderous roars.

Recents years have seen Boris grow even more radical as they diversify towards a dimension of sound that is more grid-less and organic, yet also incorporates pop and melodious elements. In June 2019 they released an extreme pop-side single “tears e.p.” that also includes covers and instrumentals from TRASH-UP!! Records. Sound production from Coaltar of the Deepers member Narasaki’s label Sadesper Record and Shinobu Narita show that Boris is pioneering even further realms of expression.

The band also released the new album “LφVE” & “EVφL” from Jack White of the White Stripes’ label Third Man Records on October 4, 2019 (later released in Japan on October 16 from TRASH-UP!!), and embarked on a 12-week tour of North America, Europe, and Japan in February 2020.

Boris released their most recent album “1985” on limited-edition vinyl to coincide with the official launch of their “heavy rock party” fan club on December 24, 2019. The club is a new platform for interacting even more directly with fans.

TRACKLISTING

We aim to dispatch all orders within 1-2 working days (excluding weekends and bank holidays). All orders placed through Dog Knights will always receive free promotional flyers, stickers, digital download codes, and maybe even a free record with larger orders, whenever possible.

Always read the item description carefully. Pre-orders are clearly noted at the top of the item description as “pre-order” along with an estimated shipping date, which is liable to change at any time due to the long process of vinyl manufacturing. This information is also added to the drop-down tab on every selectable product listing that is an active ‘pre-order’ - so it’s impossible to proceed without acknowledging. Please do not email us in June to ask where your order is, if you’ve added a product that reads ‘Due To Ship Mid-July’ to your cart.

The best way to stay up to date with active pre-order (bad news or good news), is to occasionally check our social media pages at @dogknights across all platforms. It saves both our time to quickly check these pages before emailing us to ask for an update with a pre-order.

Need to make a change to your address? No problem, mistakes happen! Just email dogknightseu@gmail.com before your order has shipped and we will do our best to amend this in time.

If you believe your order has gone missing or arrives damaged in any form, please email dogknightseu@gmail.com along with your order #, full name + address, the date you placed the order, and any other information that could prove useful to us.

We are forever grateful to all of our customers for supporting Dog Knights and our bands. Please treat us with respect, like we will to you. Any uncalled-for aggression or rude behaviour will not be tolerated and dealt with accordingly, however we deem fit.

As of 1st October, PayPal changed their refund policy and will no longer refund the “transaction fees” — meaning all small businesses will actually lose money whenever a customer requests a refund. It goes without saying, but we are a small label and it’s incredibly unhelpful to ask for a refund if you’ve simply “changed your mind”. All money directly goes toward future projects and/or the band. If there’s no other choice but to issue a refund, the non-refundable fees that have already been collected by PayPal (approximately 5% of the entire order) will not be returned.

Further information can be found in our FAQ/T&C's section at the top of our store page.
