DEBUT ALBUM AQUΛRIA OUT NOVEMBER 13 ON COLUMBIA
ON TOUR WITH RUN THE JEWELS THIS FALL
“…a chugging baseline, ominous percussions, and Asher, laying down smooth rap lyrics between a desperate and rawly sung chorus.” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
“…beautifully creepy, like an amalgamation of an R&B-influenced Aphex Twin and The King of Limbs-era Radiohead.” – PIGEONS AND PLANES
“With its dark tones and industrial sounds, ‘Bombs Away’ has BOOTS gearing up for an imminent war as the drums march in beat and the guitar’s distortion light up the night sky giving the feel of nu-age destruction.” – 2DOPEBOYZ
After offering up “Bombs Away” from his highly anticipated debut album, AQUΛRIA, BOOTS is now premiering the official music video for the track. The “Bombs Away” video syncs up perfectly with the song’s murky and foreboding aesthetic as it portrays BOOTS navigating a seedy underworld reminiscent of 1980s neo-noir films. As was the case in his debut short film, Motorcycle Jesus, BOOTS both stars in his newest visual creation and assumes the directorial helm. Watch here.
AQUΛRIA is currently available for preorder via iTunes. All preorders receive instant downloads of all previously released tracks including “AQUΛRIA”, “I Run Roulette”, “Only” and “Bombs Away”.
After his performance during Washington, DC’s Landmark Festival in September, Consequence of Sound called BOOTS’ “face-melting” set one of the best of the weekend. Catch BOOTS on tour in North America this fall as he supports Run the Jewels and when he plays Austin City Limits’ Austin Ventures Stage at 7:30pm this Saturday.
