This is the first NYC performance of ALTAR.
ALTAR is a collaboration between Sunn 0))) and Boris that is a result of both bands conceptualizing, writing and recording together as one entity. There are elements of each group’s trademark sound but true to each group’s progressive and experimental aspects, ALTAR moves into a completely new dimension.
This is the first U.S. performance of BXI. BXI is the collaboration between Boris and Ian Astbury.
Listen closely to Jesse Sykes’s stark descriptions of isolation, sometimes-swaggering toughness, fragile human emotion, and the possibilities of love, and you’ll hear something that perfectly, tenderly and surprisingly captures the feel of the 21st century so far.
