DEBUT ALBUM AQUΛRIA OUT TODAY ON COLUMBIA RECORDS
NEW YORK AND LOS ANGELES ALBUM RELEASE SHOWS SOLD OUT
“…one of the year’s edgiest and most inventive records.” –– ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
“[BOOTS] delivers rhymes as haggard chants, then rises above them to sing in a voice that sounds sleepless and anxious…AQUΛRIA elapses as an album with a sustained atmosphere of dread, determination and experiment.” –– NEW YORK TIMES
“AQUΛRIA is a captivating, often confrontational mixture of nasty power rock, hip-hop, industrial snarls and other jittery dissonant sounds, and it reveals that 28-year-old clearly belongs center stage.” –– WALL STREET JOURNAL
“..the most interesting new artist I’ve heard in 2015…my most anticipated new artist release of 2015.” –– NPR ALL SONGS CONSIDERED’S BOB BOILEN
“BOOTS’ genre-melting debut album, AQUΛRIA, evokes everything from bass-heavy underground dance music to the noisy hip-hop of Run the Jewels…to David Bowie and The Beatles.” –– ROLLING STONE
“…a meticulously crafted album…[BOOTS] stands out in a pop landscape dominated by a handful of Scandinavian producers and their American mouthpieces.” –– CHICAGO READER
BOOTS is excited to announce his first performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert next Friday, November 20. The announcement comes as BOOTS marks today’s release of AQUΛRIA, his critically-lauded debut album. The Late Show airs at 11:35pm EST on CBS.
