Seven-date tour of England and Wales to follow release of split covers single with Asobi Seksu

Avant-garde Tokyo trio Boris have announced details of a new tour, as well as a split single with fellow drone merchants Asobi Seksu.

The single will be released as a joint effort via Sargent House and Polyvinyl, and will feature the two bands covering one another, Asobi Seksu playing 'Farewell' from 2009's Pink, while Boris are translating 'New Years' into 'Neu Years'. It'll be out as a limited edition 7" on November 23, with a download card giving access to another four collaborative tracks.

Thu 6 - The Scala, London
Fri 7 - ATP Festival, Camber Sands
