Welcome back into the world that somehow has BiS in it again, amigos. I’m not in the least bit unhappy that one of the basest of inspirations for me putting this whole game together in the first place is back and living and stuff, though I have concerns! And those concerns are very important!
That being as it may, we know that there’s a second indie album from what I think is BiS 2.0.1 if I’m doing the version histories properly, and, presuming that they follow the same general pattern of releases as they did through BiS 1.3.2, this would be the loud and angry album that would, well, make BiS into BiS.
Oh hey look! Two new songs to preview for free on Soundcloud and download from OTOTOY!

This is “NOT the END.” I was a little put out that it’s apparently not a beatdown of a certain cybernetically throated center for a certain agency sister with a very similar name; it’s also a song that would benefit from having her on it.
Just kidding? If this were on BiS2, or even WHO KiLLED iDOL?, I’d probably have loved it. I just want to see new moves from you, BiS. Violent moves.
Let’s try the other track! It’s called “twisted grunge”! If that’s fair advertising, then I expect something along the lines of a drug-fueled Courtney Love solo project.
BiS. Let’s have a talk. You’re legends. You are! Well, Pour Lui is; you other guys are too new still. And Kika’s a legit talent and one of the weirdest people I’ve ever seen. Aya’s improving. Ubu’s … something? Go Zeela? Look, the point is, you’re BiS. At some point, you need to actually try to be BiS; you did a better job of that overall on your comeback record, but this is the one that I think people expected to have the “CHELSEA” and “BiSimulation” and “ASH” stuff on it.
Anyway, if you look at the track list for the new album, there’s not much else to show us! What we’ve heard to date is pretty much what we’re going to get, unless “gives” and “NAKODUB” and one of the things that I can’t read happens to be a chaotic retrospective of Gibby Haynes’s career.
02. twisted grunge
04. SAY YES
05. Never Starting Song

I was going to reblog this from John’s site, but then this preview happened, so settle for a link this time, bro
Come on, BiS. “Mature” is great and all, but where are you?
