As ANDREW W. BOSS gears up for this summer’s The Arrival Tour Part 1, the Salt Lake City-based rap-metal artist has released a new lyric video for the track “Show Me” from last year’s The Arrival album.
“‘Show Me’ is a motivational song, kind of like my motivational speech to get people off the couch and get to work,” BOSS says. “I hear a lot of ‘If I had this I’d go on tour,’ ‘If I had the time, I would go do that,’ or ‘If I was ready, but I’m in a bad time of my life right now.’ You ain’t ever gonna be ready so go do it anyway. Get rid of the doubt and the second guessing and believe in yourself, and take a leap of faith, and don’t look back!”
The Arrival Tour Part 1 will kick off on July 8 in Idaho and wrap up in early August in Illinois. Additional dates and Part 2 of the tour will be announced soon. The tour is a long-awaited return to the road for BOSS, was slated to join Saliva, Powerman 5000, Adema and Flaw on the Nu Metal Revival tour prior to its cancellation due to Covid.

BOSS first caught the music bug at age 10, after attending his brother’s band’s concert in downtown Salt Lake City. Weaned on a musical diet of Metallica, Korn, Tupac, Beastie Boys, Mudvayne and the like, BOSS began to enjoy bands and musicians that were different and special, willing to experiment outside of mainstream artists and sounds. He started writing and recording hip hop influenced music back in 2003 but it wasn’t until he began playing in a band with his brother Flip that BOSS’ musical vision became clearer.
The ANDREW W. BOSS project started to take shape in 2016, as BOSS teamed up once again with his brother Flip and brother Adam. Together with a host of talented musicians, BOSS recorded 2017’s Invincible, 2019’s Left Alone and The Arrival.
Released last year, The Arrival was produced and engineered by Jim Fogarty (All That Remains, Killswitch Engage) and features guest appearances by Cory Michalski and Jeremy Tabor (CO-OP), Rob Rivera (Nonpoint), Pablo Viveros (Chelsea Grin), 5280 Mystic, G-Mo Skee and Jamie Madrox (Twiztid).
