Boris & Ian Astbury
Japanese doom overlords Boris have teamed up with a truly unexpected collaborator: Ian Astbury, the gigantic-voiced yowler from metal mystics the Cult. Together, they've recorded an EP called BXI, which Southern Lord will release on CD and 12" vinyl in September. Boris and Astbury recorded the EP together in Tokyo, and Sunn o))) mastermind Stephen O'Malley designed the packaging. Astbury sang three of the EP's four songs.
