Japan’s heavy rock legends Boris will return with a new album, W, on January 21, 2022, and they have already debuted the first single, Drowning By Numbers.

The album – their first for cult label Sacred Bones – is billed as a thematic counterpoint to 2020’s NO. Produced by suGar yoshinaga, W occupies a more melodic territory that purposefully contrasts the heavy of extremes of its predecessor.
