Joe Volk / Boris-Split [2012]

I remember going to a CBP concert right here in Thessaloniki earlier this year waiting also for Joe Volk to sing . My heart fluttered downwards as I found out he had left the band but that’s how projects are. For the books CBP rocked the house. Emotions flying around everywhere.

Old times sake listen to the past and long onto the future.

Listen up…I love Boris too so don’t miss out!

This split album is a juxtaposition of styles from the same mindset.  One story told two ways.
