Baroness Drummer Says He Recently Had To Head Home From Tour After His Girlfriend “Got Assaulted In Her Apartment By A Would-Be Rapist”

Baroness recently performed as an acoustic trio after drummer Sebastian Thomson needed to go home for a family emergency. Now, Thomson has revealed the shocking reason for his departure. He said the following:

“I’m back! Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. Just so you have an idea of what happened, my gf got assaulted in her apartment by a would-be rapist. Luckily she’s a total badass and fought him off after an intense struggle. I’m so proud of what a hero she is. NYPD was super professional and helpful and nabbed the loser in 24 hours. I also want to thank my Baroness family for being so unconditionally supportive. Thanks again everyone, back to rocking! ❤🥁🎸”

Baroness’ New Album Is “Mostly Recorded”

John Baizley was recently interviewed by Heavy at the UK Download Festival, and offered an update on the new Baroness album. He said the following:

“It’s mostly recorded, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still have a ton of work to do on it. So it’s back from this tour, straight back to work—in fact, we’re doing a little bit of work whilst on tour… We’re really just racing to the finish line trying to get the record out so we can start introducing new songs to the setlist.”
