'Absolutego' from 1996 and 'Amplifier Worship' from 1998 are being released digitally for the first time

Boris are physically and digitally reissuing two of their early albums: 1996's Absolutego and 1998's Amplifier Worship.

The remastered reissues, which are coming via Jack White's Third Man Records, mark the first time that either album has been made available digitally, while both albums will also be pressed on limited edition coloured vinyl (opaque red for Absolutego and lime green for Amplifier Worship).

Absolutego, Boris' debut album, was originally released as a continuous 60-minute piece, and was later given an additional vinyl and CD release via Southern Lord in 2010. This reissue on Third Man will include updated album art and the full record spread across one-and-a-half LPs, with 1997 recording 'Dronevil 2' filling out the other side of the second vinyl.

First released in 1998, Boris' second album proper, Amplifier Worship, will see its first-ever reissue in this round of releases. It will come with minimalistic album art from the first-press Japanese CD.

Third Man will release Absolutego and Amplifier Worship on November 13, 2020.
