The deluxe 180 gram orange vinyl version of the new Boris album: "Smile" is now available to order! As per usual no expense was
spared for the vinyl documentation of this recording.
There are exclusive lp only tracks as well as extended versions and different mixes than on the Southern Lord Smile Cd version
and the Smile Japanese cd and lp released by Daymare.
The Smile graphics and design via Stephen O' Malley that adorn the cd version have a larger canvas to radiate from. The front
and back cover are reflective silver "mirror" stock. Both lps are housed in printed inner-sleeves that contain photos, lyrics and
artwork by Boris familia.
Mailorder customers receive 180 gram orange vinyl (1,000 pressed of this color) and a 18" x 24" Smile poster. $17 each

The wait is over! With this brand new studio album from Boris' the group plays deeply intense blistering psychedelia with mammoth
hooks and truly innovative song-writing. Smile is a reinvention of dark heaviness. Smile presents a new sound from Boris which
represents everything that is RIGHT NOW.
Boris hope "this is going to be a new experience for everyone beyond music 'Features collaborations with special guests: Stephen
O' Malley (sunn0))), KTL), and Michio Kurihara (Ghost, White Heaven, The Stars). The Southern Lord version is drastically
different than the version of Smile released by Daymare records in Japan. The main difference between the Southern Lord version
and the Daymare version is the mix of the actual songs themselves. Where the songs on the Japanese version have a more electronic
or noisy-psychedelic vibe, the North American/European version here features a heavier more straight-forward rock aesthetic. Its
truly remarkable how the band consciously have set out (and achieved) to make two completely different sounding versions of the
same album. It is a testament to their continual, endless well-spring of creativity! The Southern Lord version also features a
track that has never been heard by anyone! : "You Were Holding an Umbrella". We purposely left this song off any promo versions
in order to prevent the entire album from being leaked online.
Time to turn that frown upside down... (ok well maybe just for a little while! hahahahahah) $12

** WORLD EXCLUSIVE, no international release, vinyl version or digital distribution planned as of now
Full documentary live album recorded at Wolf Creek during much successful 6 weeks US tour in 2008.
For entire Smile world tour BORIS has recruited legendary guitar player Michio Kurihara as the most reliable additional member.
They played 70+ shows in 4 months and all songs that they played during the tour kept growing and got sounded totally different
from original studio album with more persuasiveness.
"Smile" is being released in two different versions (Japanese version produced by You Ishihara, international version produced by
the band) thus listeners has got confused with it (maybe), and another "Smile" album is coming…
