Are you ready for some new Baroness material? You'd better be! While we haven't had much news from the Savannah, Georgia band in a while, today they just announced their new and fourth album. And with it, they also released a new song just now. Their new album is called Purple (and is due out December 18th via Relapse Records). It's their first with the new rhythm section, bassist Nick Jost and drummer Sebastian Thomson and since the 2012 bus accident. Listen to the intense new tune "Chlorine & Wine" as a first taste of the record and see the cover below as well.
Baroness are teasing their upcoming new live EP Live At Maida Vale and have now released a live version of "Cocainium", which is currently streaming via Pitchfork here. "Cocainium" was originally released on the band's last album Yellow & Green which was not as consensual as their previous albums.
After announcing North American headlining tour dates in support of their latest album Yellow & Green, Baroness have confirmed the European leg of the 2013 headlining tour and the EP release of Live At Maida Vale on July 19th in Germany/Benelux, July 22nd in the UK/world and July 23rd in North America via Relapse Records. Royal Thunder will support the band in these European shows excluding October 3rd and 6th, and the band will return to England where they were involved in a tour bus accident last year.
Baroness have added an additional leg to their previously announced Yellow & Green North American headlining tour, with a number of Midwest and West Coast dates and support from Royal Thunder. The band has also released a candid interview clip where they share their thoughts on the Summer 2012 tour bus accident and reveal the first rehearsal footage with Nick Jost (bass) and Sebastian Thomson (drums).
Baroness have announced the first leg of a headlining North American tour which starts in May in Philadelphia. John Baizley and Pete Adams will be joined by Nick Jost (bass) and Sebastian Thomson (drums) which replace Matt Maggioni and Allen Blickle who recently left the band. Check out below the tour dates confirmed so far. This will be the first North American tour in support of Yellow & Green and also the first since the band's crash in Bath.
After a difficult moment in the band's career last year in England when they were involved in a coach crash, Baroness has lost two of its band members due to physical and psychological repercussions from the accident: drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Matt Maggioni, leaving the band with only two members. However, Baroness confirm that they have found two new musicians that will tour with the band.
Baroness' John Baizley and Pete Adams have shared an acoustic performance of "Stretchmarker". The clip, recorded in Baizley's Philadelphia art studio, marks the first performance the band members have shared since their bus accident in August.
