    Experimental metal outfit Boris are prepping a new album for release this summer. Dubbed LφVE & EVφL, it’s expected to hit shelves sometime in August through Jack White’s own Third Man Records. Update: The album is out officially on October 4th.

    The forthcoming effort follows Dear from 2017 and marks the first since the Japanese band celebrated its 25th anniversary. The LP spans a total of seven tracks, but is technically considered two independent works, “encapsulating conflicting connotations that interweave and become intricately entangled with one another, gradually eroding before becoming utterly singular,” per a press statement.

    Continuing their new relationship with Third Man, Boris are also expected to drop new reissues through the label. Reissues of the group’s two 2003 albums, Akuma No Uta and Feedbacker, will arrive before year’s end.
