Savannah, Georgia progressive sludge metal band Baroness has announced a US headlining tour that will kick off May 24th in Philadelphia, the adopted hometown of guitarist/singer John Baizley. The band will be touring in support of their new album Yellow & Green (review), which was released last year but saw very little touring due to a horrific bus accident less than a month after the album’s release.
Guitarist Pete Adams explains, “It’s hard to find the words to express how excited we are to announce this tour. Seven months ago, who knew when it would be or even if we could get back on the road. But here we are, picking right back up where we left off. A heartfelt thanks to everyone’s unconditional love and support for us through, let’s hope, the hardest time this band will ever see. We told you we’d be back so let’s do this thing!”
It was recently announced that bassist Matt Maggioni and drummer Allen Bickle had quit the band. Baizley and Adams will be joined by bassist Nick Jost and drummer Sebastian Thomson for the tour.
