"Seasons", the new video from BARONESS, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's fifth album, "Gold & Grey", which will be released on June 14 via Abraxan Hymns.
"Seasons", which BARONESS premiered at its recent Worcester performance, takes fans behind-the-scenes into the recording for "Gold & Grey", featuring pre-production footage from the singer/guitar player 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," says Baizley 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 its current co-headlining run with DEAFHEAVEN, has also announced a five-week U.S. "Grey & Gold Tour", kicking off on July 11. Tickets are on-sale this Friday, April 12 at 10 a.m. local time.
