Board Up the House is the second full-length album by the experimental metal band Genghis Tron. The album was recorded and mixed at Godcity Studio from August 29 to September 21, 2007, in Salem, Massachusetts, by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou. It was mastered at New Alliance East by Nick Zampiello. The album was released on February 19, 2008, by Relapse Records on CD and on March 25 by Lovepump United on vinyl.

There are two different vinyl releases from Lovepump United: standard and limited. The standard has two black vinyl discs with the second being single-sided. On the unused side is an etching similar to the album artwork. The limited edition is the same except the first disc is colored with a transparent splatter design, and is limited to 400 copies.
