BARONESS Streams New Single "Last Word", Announces New Album & Massive North American Tour

New Baroness has arrived, and it's excellent!

Baroness has announced their long-awaited new record Stone for September 15, and is now streaming the debut single "Last Word". Stone was mixed by Joe Barresi (Kyuss, Tool) and mastered by Bob Ludwig (Led Zeppelin, Nirvana).

"An important through line in Baroness is we don't like to repeat ourselves," John Baizley explains. "It's all about the willingness to take risks. When I was younger, the whole point of music was to be different, not to do the same thing, and not to listen to parents or play by the rules. That's kind of goofy, but in practice, it works. It's really sort of terrifying to be at the sixth record in your career and think that you'll have to keep up with your history rather than continually invent. So, we doubled down on continuously inventing to see where it takes us. I think this record is a good reflection of that. Stone is a lot more alive, more direct."

"The recording process was completely self-contained," adds Sebastian Thomsen. "Having just the four of us in a rented house in the mountains for a month resulted in not only a cohesive and authentic sound, but also an intense collective mentality."

"I think we were able to strip everything away on this record," Gina Gleason shares. "We were unified in that. So, we just jumped in and did our best. That felt really good. It was a really cool, empowering, creative experience."

Stone is available for pre-order here. Baroness has also announced an insane North American tour, which you can check out below and get your tickets here.
