Vocalist/guitarist John Baizley said the following about the album:

“Our goal is, was, and will always be to write increasingly superior, more honest and compelling songs, and to develop a more unique and challenging sound. I’m sure we have just finished our best, most adventurous album to date. We dug incredibly deep, challenged ourselves and recorded a record I’m positive we could never again replicate.

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to know Sebastian, Nick and Gina as both my bandmates and my friends. They have pushed me to become a better songwriter, musician and vocalist. We’re all extremely excited for this release, which includes quite a few ‘firsts’ for the band, and we’re thrilled to be back on tour to play these psychotic songs for our fans. Expect some surprises.”

Drummer Sebastian Thomson added:

“On ‘Gold & Grey‘ we have taken some unexpected paths on a labyrinthine sonic adventure. We accepted sounds and styles that have not appeared on previous Baroness albums, and I’m excited to welcome our fans into our new lair.”

Guitarist Gina Gleason also commented:

“Having the chance to create music without any preconceived boundaries was both liberating and intimidating. As we pushed past our fear and comfort zone, the four of us connected in a way that allowed us to create freely, uplift one another and build the unique sonic world that is ‘Gold & Grey‘.

As a longtime Baroness listener, it is exciting to have created something new while still maintaining a deep love and understanding of the band’s roots. To say that the making of this record was quite a journey would be an understatement. We are beyond excited to share this experience and music with everyone!”


Baroness Reveal Cover Art For New Album “Gold & Grey”

Baroness have revealed the cover art for their new album “Gold & Grey,” which will be released later this year. You can check that out below. If you missed it, you can also find footage of the band performing a new song titled “Borderlines” HERE.

The group commented:

“Here is the full cover painting for our new album, ‘Gold & Grey‘. This is just the first piece of a much larger puzzle. Like the forthcoming album itself, it is the result of an intense, tireless, and psychotically convoluted creative process. Both artistically and musically, Baroness have always taken a no compromise approach towards our releases, and I can’t express strongly enough how excited we are to be so close to the verge of our newest release.

This painting was born from a deeply personal reflection on the past 12 years of this band’s history, and will stand as the 6th and final piece in our chromatically-themed records. It has been an absolutely wild ride, a truth much stranger than fiction, with nearly as many low points as there have been highs, but throughout all, this band has offered me an inspired place to express myself and find some level of comfort through our visual and sonic output.

I hope you all enjoy this album cover (sorry it’s not called Orange). Don’t look too closely, you might just see all the hidden elements. We want to thank everyone for your heartfelt support over the years, it means the world to us. We also appreciate your continued patience. ‘Gold & Grey‘ will be out soon, and then the real fun begins. I assure you, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon.

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! ❤🥁🎸”
