BARONESS Drops Rager Of A New Song "Seasons," Summer Tour Dates
Baroness' new record Gold & Grey is out on June 14 and the band promised it would be pretty experimental. The new song "Seasons" proves that almost immediately. The song has a pretty funky feel that evolve into an absolute barnburner of chorus, throws in some blasting here and there, and closes out with a massive, almost breakdown-type section loaded with atmosphere.
Here's what the band had to say about the track alongside some information about the video.
“Seasons,” which the band premiered at their recent Worcester performance, takes fans behind-the-scenes into the recording for Gold & Grey, featuring pre-production footage from the singer/guitar player John Baizley’s Philadelphia basement studio. The bulk of the album was recorded at producer Dave Fridmann’s (The Flaming Lips, Mogwai) upstate New York Tarbox Road Studio.
"The term I kept using was that I wanted to create something that was more kaleidoscopic than our former records," says Baizley of the band’s approach to the new album. "We were trying to say something new with our instruments, with our sound intact, with the spirit of the band intact, but not applying the typical conventions when possible."
Baroness has also announced a headlining tour that kicks off on July 11. No word on who the openers are yet. Pre-order Gold & Grey here.
