Baroness, the most buzzed about band in metal since Mastodon circa 2002 -- thanks to their mind-bending 'Blue Record' -- have booked another impressive tour to add to their resume. The band will embark on a US tour alongside Deftones.

The Baroness tour dates launch in mid-August in Spokane, Wash. and will head out East, hitting secondary markets through early September. The Georgia quartet is currently overseas, slaying European audience one show at a time.
