Bossk are a band formed in Ashford in 2005. Following their 2006 debut release, .1, on the QnotQ label they toured extensively with a number of bands, including Cult of Luna, The Ocean, Yndi Halda, Baroness, Capricorns and the Hope Conspiracy.

Bossk .2 was released by Eyesofsound in October 2007. Touring on the back of the release saw the band play shows throughout the UK with Devil Sold His Soul and Ephel Duath, and on continental Europe, with Cult of Luna and Humanfly.

During early 2008, after an extensive jaunt around the UK with Kruger, original members Nick (drums) and Rob (guitar) left Bossk. Replacements were found and Bossk were back on the road with Textures for a brief stint in the Netherlands. In May 2008 the band played their 200th show and their first headline show at the Islington Academy in London.[1]

In October of the same year Bossk broke up. Two final shows were played and the .3 video EP was released, along with a trilogy box-set of all their EPs. In August 2009, a split with Rinoa was released. This was the band's final release and featured a soundboard recording of a new song which was to be used on the album the band were working on before they called it a day.

In February 2012, the band announced plans to record a live BBC Maida Vale session and play two shows at a later date, though their future beyond that is unknown.

Bossk has come back together and are now signed to Deathwish inc.
