Baroness Share Footage Of “Front Toward Enemy” From Recent Livestream, Say They Have Close To 30 New Songs In The Works

As previously reported, Baroness recently performed their latest album “Gold & Grey” in full during a special livestream from the Culture Lab LIC at The Plaxall Gallery in Long Island City, NY. Now, the group have shared footage of “Front Toward Enemy” from the set:

In other news, John Baizley has also revealed that the band have close to 30 songs in the works for their next album. He told MetalSucks the following about that:

“We started doing Zoom meetings every Monday night, and mostly that’s because we’ve been writing since March or April. We’re talking about new stuff we’re doing, which is all file sharing, all trading elements of songs, and [we’re] hoping when we get together that they congeal.

It seems really obvious to us that if we had all our eggs in the tour basket then we’d just remove them from that basket and put them into producing and creating new music. So at this moment I think we’ve written just under 30 songs, we have just under 30 songs started, and well over three hours worth of music to go through and refine and work on as a band now that we’ve individually all kinda done our things with it. It’s been really surprising and exciting.

I don’t know if its a well-kept secret, but we work slow! We’re glacial. Everybody I’ve worked with in the past knows how long it takes for us to get everything together ’cause we do it in this ridiculously complex, layered and embellished way. It takes time.

So when all we had was time, initially I was afraid it was just going to be this sort of vicious cycle of having too much time, not knowing what to do with it and making the time it takes us to write twice as long, three times as long. But in fact we put some rules on it and made a routine out of it.

We’re writing music, better music, faster than we ever have in the past, so that’s been encouraging. At the same time, its also good to feel some encouragement about what we’re doing and to feel inspired. So [we’re] really putting our noses to the grindstone this year and keeping a low profile and just dedicating ourselves to writing something new and something great and something that feels genuine and unforced.

The fact that we’ve gotten so far into that process feels really great to me. I don’t know how viable it is to just write music, record music and release music [without touring], but there’s definitely no other way to start whatever it’s going to be like for musicians and artists in the future.

It seems like a very safe bet to say if we have content, if we have new music, if we’re constantly in the cycle of writing and we take some of the energy that we [usually] spend on tour — which is a ton of it, it was supposed to be eight months this year — if we just take that energy and put it towards music production and creating new things, that’s the only place we can start from. Certainly doesn’t make sense to try to make up for lost tour time any other way.

It’s strange how narrow the focus gets and how that feels like it’s going to be a limitation and then, in fact, for Baroness, it just put us on a track that’s been great for us. Otherwise I think we would have four tours under our belt since the pandemic started, all over the place: Japan, Australia, Europe, another U.S. tour

So those things have already come and gone, but in the interim we have made so much new stuff that the prospect of the future is exciting for us because we’ve made it this far, we haven’t had to shutter the HQ, we haven’t had to call it quits yet.”

Watch Mastodon, Baroness, Ex-Megadeth, Etc. Members Cover Fleetwood Mac’s “You Make Loving Fun”

“Two Minutes To Late Night” have shared footage of their host Jordan “Gwarsenio Hall” Olds performing a quarantine cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “You Make Loving Fun” with Johanna Sadonis (Lucifer), Stephen Brodsky (Cave In, Mutoid Man, etc.), Emily Panic, Marty Friedman (ex-Megadeth), Bill Kelliher (Mastodon), Nick Jost (Baroness), and Nicke Anderson (Lucifer, etc.). You can see footage of that below. “Two Minutes To Late Night” commented:

“ooh ooh witchy womxn! We covered your mom’s favorite Fleetwood Mac Song and frankly our’s too. Also, Marty Friedman lives in Japan plus Johanna and Nicke live in Sweden so there are all kinds of international spookiness in this video.

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!”
