Last year, Southern sludge rockers Baroness went through a terrifying and injurious bus accident that saw each band member hurt. Since then bassist Matt Maggioni and drummer Allen Blickle have left the band, which singer/guitarist John Baizley says was part of an amicable split.
But now the boys are back and are ready to hit the road. In a candid video statement, Baizely and guitarist Pete Adams speak about their focus and their eagerness to embark on a tour. They also announce that they are welcoming bassist Nick Jost and drummer Sebastian Thomson to the group.
Adams states, “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!”
