Japanese experimental metal legends Boris will return with their new album,Dear, on July 14th (via Sargent House). Ahead of the official release date, it’s streaming in full over at NPR.

Dearis the band’s23rd album in 25 years, following2011’s trio Attention Please, Heavy Rocks and New Album.But it almost never came to be. As Takeshi, Wata and Atsuo looked forward from their wizened vantage point, they weren’t sure they had anything new to say. After revisiting their classicPink on a 10th anniversary tour, however, they found their songwriting spirits rejuvenated.

While they initially planned to pen one farewell LP, they ended up with three albums worth of material.Dear,a note of appreciation to fans,pulls together 10 tracks from that stockpile that represent each era of the band even as it points towards the future.There’s the sludgy doom of DEADSONG, the thrashing throwback of Absolutego, and the synth-y shoegaze of Biotope.The heavy, grinding instrumental of The Power captivates with its rawness, while the heavenly Memento Moricreeps forward like a dark dream.

Take a listen to the whole thing over atNPR.
