Bo Ningen release their forthcoming third album 'III' via Stolen Recordings on May 12th, 2014. It is streaming now here and you can hear new single 'Slider' featuring Roger Robinson of King Midas Touch guesting on vocals alongside Bo Ningen's Taigen here. 'Slider' video coming soon! 'III' is a rich and accomplished album that has seen them evolve musically. Jehnny Beth of Savages also guests on the album and they've sung partly in English on this album for the first time. It was recorded over several months with the band spending more time on the production and development of the songs then ever before. 'III' illustrates Bo Ningen as a group with a singular vision, reaching for what they define as 'pure music', by turns esoteric and a no holds barred sensory assault.
