I wouldn’t mind a return to Sesame Street, but I’d also love the heaviness of a space themed album.

If it’s referencing a release for 2023 it’s good to note the number 10 has all sorts of numerological and biblical significance. It’s also considered the completion of a cycle which could be attributed to their 5th and final album through warp? 10 commandments, 10 plagues over Egypt, 10 fingers, etc…

Something like Gemini would be an interesting idea.

Funny you mention Gemini. I picture the intro to the Buck Rogers show (from the 70s) to Gemini.

BoC is like crack, their social media activity causes me to have withdrawals


I saw a turquoise hexagon suitcase today while out and about, thought to myself, “c’mon boys, tweet already dammit” :D

The I Ching hexagram 36 talks about a darkening of the light, or hiding/shielding light while the dark passes.
The 23rd hexagram speaks of decay, deception, splitting apart, and deterioration.

I just checked - they started liking "new album?!" tweets in 2017.

Oh man I really really hope it's not a 2023 release... this year or next please lol

The video was a really nice treat though, definitely provides even more emotion to the song which is already pretty gut wrenching
been gone about a week ✲‿✲

I go through periods with the tweets. Somedays, I'm excited. Other times I'm like, "yeah ok guys."

This time was more excited. But I'm sure the cynicism is around the corner :P

It seems like they have been posting a lot of TH tracks lately. Is this just a coincidence or could it really mean something?

You know, I wonder if the resemblance between the recent Nevermen remix and Omni Trio's "Breakbeat Etiquette" actually means something more now. At least to me, old school DnB, House, Rave music, and even more Trance/Psytrance stuff from the late 90s to early 00s, always sounds heavily futuristic and dystopian. I'm all for tracks like "Basefree" on the next album to fit in with the current state of the world, much like how Geogaddi fit with the uncertainty and paranoia after the 9/11 attacks. The brothers have expressed a fear of feeling like a parody of themselves before, so I don't rule something like that out.

This has literally got to be them at this point, I've said it like five times but the sound is unmistakably theirs..

Just compare any of their LP catalogue to the sounds of the melody, the bass, the atmosphere and the background noise which has this slightly short wave radio vibe to it.

I don't think this is a sound that is easily replicated, and it has their IP all over it. Also it being so second nature to how they would respond to the state of the world. Sry to repeat myself but after giving Geogaddi and then TH a re-listen, this is undoubtedly them.

Since this is reddit, its not 100% reliable by any stretch, but interesting quote nonetheless if true:
https://www.reddit.com/r/boardsofcanada/comments/n677pi/new_release_speculation_thread/

They’re finishing up some work on a few records then it will go to production but production of vinyls is backlogged and still working at a slower rate than normal - could be 3 months, 6 months 9 months more! That’s all the information I’ve got.


the user is based in Scotland though, so you never know :)

I 100% agree. This is their sound. I remember someone saying it sounded more like Com Truise than the bros, which is crazy.

We are coming up on a year since this post.

This is interesting as we now have two people who claim it’s in a production line, the YouTube comment I mentioned (Jamieboy) and this guy. I wonder if Fredd-E got anywhere interesting with contacting Jamie on Instagram. This makes me think of something arvy said a few pages back
