Boris share single ‘She Is Burning’ from new album ‘Heavy Rocks (2022)’

The Japanese band have also announced a North America tour

Veteran Japanese experimental band Boris have announced a new album, ‘Heavy Rocks (2022)’ with a new single.

The band took to social media on Tuesday (May 17) to announce ‘Heavy Rocks (2022)’ with the release of a new single titled ‘She Is Burning’.


The music video for ‘She Is Burning’ aptly captures the chaos of its accompanying single. The band perform surrounded by flames while trumpets blare and fuzzy guitar riffs back singer Atsuo’s frenzied vocals.

Watch the music video for ‘She Is Burning’ below.

‘She Is Burning’ is the opener of the 10-track ‘Heavy Rocks (2022)’. The album will arrive on August 12. Pre-orders for the album’s release on vinyl, CD and cassette tape are available here.

The upcoming album will be the third entry in the band’s ongoing ‘Heavy Rocks’ series, with two prior entries of the same name, released in 2002 and 2011.

Boris said of ‘Heavy Rocks (2022)’ in a press statement via Consequence: “The soul of rock music is constantly evolving. A soul that transcends words and meaning to reach you – instinct, intuition, and fangs. This is the heavy rock of Boris now. As we land on our 30th anniversary, Boris continues to evolve, accelerating the latest and universal. Boris does not lead anyone anywhere. We just keep showing this attitude.”
