Thrilling Boredom

Everyone’s favorite Japanese visionaries, the Boredoms, are not only returning to the US for a series of lives dates, but have also switched labels. They left Vice, the label who reissued their Super Roots series and helped them produce 77 Boardrum, and made the jump to Chicago’s stalwart indie, Thrill Jockey. Thrill Jockey is releasing Super Roots 9 in April, which is a live recording of a show on Christmas Eve in 2004, which featured a 20-person choir. Truthfully, we don’t really care what label they’re on, as long as they keep releasing their records and bringing them back here to play shows. Upcoming live dates here.
