Baroness, Windhand, Etc. Members Join Forces In Darling

Gina Gleason (Baroness), Dorthia Cottrell (Windhand), and Leanne Martz (Misstallica) have launched a new project called Darling. The band’s first single “Baptists” can be purchased on Bandcamp with proceeds set to go towards For The Gwols.

Cottrell commented:

“So Gina and Leanne and I have been playing and writing songs together for a little while now just having fun and trying to live out our childhood “all girl band” fantasies haha This is one of the songs we have been working on and we are nervous but excited to share it with you all!

Its an honor and a blast to play with these two extremely talented women who I am very lucky to consider two of my best friends. You can pay what you want for the song on our Bandcamp and we’ve decided to donate all the proceeds to the @forthegworlsparty fund for black trans people that helps with rent and gender affirmative surgery, as this song is about someone I loved a lot who was a part of the trans community but who sadly is no longer with us as a result of the difficulties she faced just trying to be herself.

This song is the first of many more to come, hope you guys like it!”

Baptists Stream New Song “Victim Service”

Baptists are streaming a new song titled “Victim Service.” This track is from the band’s new album “Beacon Of Faith,” which will be released on May 25. Guitarist Danny Marshall commented:

“From a songwriting standpoint, I think it is about as rock ‘n’ roll as we could get. I wanted to see if we could get away with doing a tune with this kind of mid-paced feel. The last riff in the song is a total John Reis-style riff attempt – his songs have always had a huge influence on the songwriting in this band, and to me that shines through more on this song than anything else on this record.”
