#22 – Boris


Boris is a genre-defying group from Tokyo that has been making music since 1992. Self-described as a "party band," their style has evolved from experimental to doom metal to even synthpop, most recently. 2011 brought the release of three new albums: New Album, Heavy Rocks, and Attention Please, which each showcased a different side of Boris. Japan Society caught up with founding member and drummer Atsuo backstage before the band’s most recent Irving Plaza show to ask him about his background, the band, and his favorite thing about New York City.
