Besides stocking up on destinations, Baroness also released a new song off of their upcoming release Gold & Grey called “Seasons”. This track opens with a shoegaze-inspired intro driven by urgent-sounding drums, which stand in stark contrast to the dramatic vocals and chorus-enveloped guitars and bass. From under all the reverb and romantic noise of the instrumentation emerges a guitar lead that segues into the harder part of the song. Now, the drums changed their round, forceful push into a cymbal-driven gallop of shimmering treble. Glistening picked chords and monstrous octave interludes set the tone for most of the rest of the song, before collapsing into a wall of noise.

You can get tickets for the upcoming shows here. Follow Baroness either on Facebook or on Bandcamp.
