    This rhymes: Borgore to tour!

    Dubstep's emerging badass Borgore is looking to further invade the US with his mastermind tracks on his round of solo dates coming up. Launching Nov. 22 in Knoxville, Tenn., he'll take his hard-hitting beats on a month-long trek through middle America. B-b-b-bring it.

    Asaf Borger, AKA Borgore, has unquestionably become a household name for those who follow the ever-growing dubstep sound. Taking a different turn from the main stages and social circles of the genre emerging out of Europe, Borgore has a huge online presence using many social network platforms. As a pianist, saxophone extraordinaire, death metal drummer and beat boxer (working alongside Tomba on their live beatbox group, which later became dubstep group Amp), Borgore is not just your average party rocker. He conquers a diverse music spectrum. Bor's got talent, yo!

    He started producing dubstep in 2007, and with very little recognition from the then-niche audience, Borgore quickly established himself with his unique sound and style. He quickly started to fly around the world from gig to gig, shortly realizing every performance was having a huge impact. Borgore quickly developed unique characteristics to his performance. Whether crowd surfing or mosh pitting with his fans, the charismatic performer brought over his years of experience in a band to the dubstep stage.

    He maintains his live stamina via a special workout regime—check it out here.

    His full-length EP The Filthiest Hits... So Far is out now. Look for his new artist album to be released in spring of 2012.
