June 14, 2019 – Gold & Grey, the last album in Baroness’ canon of kaleidoscopic releases, is available today.

The band has simultaneously debuted the video for “Tourniquet” (https://youtu.be/RQeAvbTVWiU), with the Pam Strohm directed clip tying into the album artwork’s color palette.

One of rock music’s most anticipated releases of the year, the 17-track album is racking up accolade after accolade, with fans and music critics alike raving about the Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Mogwai) produced collection. Consequence of Sound awarded the album an “A”, describing Gold & Grey as “a culmination of all their passion and discipline,” while MetalSucksexpanded on that idea, saying “It’s fitting that the chromatic series that started with the blazing Red Album should close with a deep self-examination like this. Spontaneously melancholy and invigorating, Gold & Grey perfectly encapsulates how Baroness excel at reaching shining peaks and descending into gloomy valleys.”

 
 
 
 

“The idea, initially, was just to do the traditional color wheel, which is six colors,” explains Baizley in a forthcoming Revolver cover story. “Orange is the final one on the wheel, so calling it Gold & Grey is our way of circumventing calling our album Orange — that’s just not a cool title, so this is as close as we get to it. I’ve listened to all five [Baroness albums] in a row, and this record feels like it’s part of that. And I don’t know that the next one won’t, but it also feels like 12 years might be long enough chasing one idea.”

Baroness make a special full band performance this evening at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade as part of a mini-tour of Northeastern U.S. record stores. The band heads to South America later this month, with North American and European tours carrying them through the end of the year.
