Watch BARONESS Rip It Up During An Intimate Live Set In Chicago

Seven songs and they're all great.

Baroness played an intimate set at the Chicago Music Exchange (CME) music retail shop for a recent episode of CME Sessions, and let's just say they did not disappoint in the slightest. You can catch the 45-minute performance above. The set list is as follows:

  1. "Tourniquet"
  2. "Little Things"
  3. "Cold-Blooded Angels"
  4. "Seasons"
  5. "If I Have To Wake Up"
  6. "I’d Do Anything"
  7. "I’m Already Gone"

Recently, while filming a session for Amoeba Music's What's In My Bag? series, vocalist and guitarist John Dyer Baizley seemed to indicate that Baroness is working on a new LP. While discussing one of his purchases, The Rolling Stones' Black and Blue, Baizley said, "I really want this for [record] one song… I think it's the first or second track on this record… 'Hand Of Fate.' I guess it was about a year ago, or a little bit over a year ago, Gina and I were traveling to do some recording for our upcoming record, and we just listened to that song over and over again. It doesn't go much beyond that, but it's a really, really great era of The Stones for me. It's got this really cool open, bluesy, raw kind of sound that, I don't know – I'm just a sucker for it."

Baroness's last LP was 2019's Gold & Grey, which was the first album to feature guitarist Gina Gleason after the departure of Peter Adams, who had been with the band since 2007. Gold & Grey received universal critical praise, and the band's live shows have become epic experiences filled with anthemic numbers awash in a haze of sonic beauty.

The band was recently announced as openers for this summer's Lamb Of God/Killswitch Engage tour, and they will also be doing some dates in Europe, linking up with Mastodon for a handful of shows. You can see all of those dates below.
