Baroness & Against Me! Cancel Co-Headlining Tour

Baroness and Against Me! have cancelled their co-headlining tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek, which also featured Destroy Boys and Drug Church, was supposed to launch next month.

Baroness commented:

“We know you have been waiting patiently to hear word on the status of our upcoming shows in May with Against Me!. Unfortunately with local restrictions and with the health of our fans, crew and the band in mind, we will be cancelling all shows in May. We are just as bummed out (if not more) to not be seeing you in the upcoming weeks, but once the current situation has passed and it is safe for us all to gather again we will be coming your way to celebrate life and (new) music with you.

If you have purchased a ticket for any of these shows, you should be receiving a refund in the next few weeks. If you do not, please contact your point of purchase.

In the meantime please, stay safe, stay health, and even though we are physically apart we are all in this together.

With love,
Baroness“

Baroness Share “Socially Distant” Performance Of “Tourniquet”

Baroness have shared a “socially distant” performance of their song “Tourniquet.” That track appears on the band’s latest album “Gold & Grey.“

The group commented:

“Hey everyone! Here’s an as-live-as-possible performance of ‘Tourniquet’ that we made over the course of a couple days during this period of isolation. We have all maintained a rigid policy of social-distancing since becoming aware of this pandemic; which has unfortunately deprived us of our much preferred means of playing music.

Throughout this crisis, the overall safety and responsibility of our global human community far outweighs the individual value of any show, festival or tour. We’re refocusing and redoubling our energy to adapt to this situation as it unfolds.

As difficult as it seems to navigate the effects of this virus, the isolation has not stripped us of our passion for Baroness’ music. Playing music so far from our bandmates will never be particularly natural.

However, the experience of making this video through emails, texts and phone calls has been a powerful reminder of how inspiring and invigorating music can be in times of stress, struggle and confusion.

We hope you enjoy this performance. It isn’t meant to highlight musical perfection or precision. Personally, it serves as a reminder that, no matter what situation we face, we are still able to enjoy friendship, family and community through something as simple as a song. Isolated but never alone… Baroness.”
