Baroness shares ‘Seasons’ video, announces summer tour dates

Baroness, which will release its fifth album, “Gold & Grey,” on June 14 via Abraxan Hymns, has given fans another early listen to the 17-track collection with the release of a video for “Seasons.”

“Seasons,” which the band premiered at its recent Worcester performance, takes fans behind-the-scenes into the recording of “Gold & Grey,” featuring pre-production footage from the singer/guitarist 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,” Baizley said 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, which is in the final few days of a co-headlining run with Deafheaven, also has announced a five-week U.S. “Grey & Gold Tour,” kicking off July 11. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. local time Friday, April 12.

Album pre-orders (http://smarturl.it/baroness-goldandgrey) include instant downloads of “Borderlines” (https://youtu.be/tQX_oVVORFU) and “Seasons.”
