Baroness will hit the road on a North American tour this May. After last year’s van accident, which saw the band plunge 30 feet off a viaduct and sidelined it for several months, Baroness are ready to hit the road again.
“It’s hard to find the words to express how excited we are to announce this tour,” explained guitar player Pete Adams. “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!”
With drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Matt Maggioni no longer touring with the band, Sebastian Thomson (drums) and Nick Jost (bass) have stepped in to fill those roles.
