Avant-garde rockers Boredoms have named Thrill Jockey their new home outside of Japan, and to kick things off, the band will be releasing the first installment of its Super Roots series in eight years.
Super Roots 9 is a recording of a show from Christmas Even 2004 in Japan, when a 20-person choir joined the band onstage. It's also the first official live release from the band. The disc will feature artwork by EYE and a 40-page booklet of musical scores and notations.
