Japan's legendary underground group Boredoms are returning to the US in 2008 for a rare and very special series of dates this Spring. More relevant now than ever, Boredoms have recently been heralded for their 77 BOADRUM event in 2007 in New York City, where band leader Eye directed a phalanx of 77 drummers playing in unison. VICE Records also reissued their seminal Super Roots series in 2007, prompting SPIN Magazine to call their body of work "the freakiest recordings ever issued."
