After announcing a series of tour dates in Europe with Mastodon, Baroness have announced a headlining fall tour of the U.S. Starting in November, the group will make a lap around the U.S. For this tour, ticket buyers will have the opportunity to choose which songs they want to hear the band play on that date of the tour.
“I cannot remember any moment in the history of this band where we’ve been more excited to tour than we are today,” says Baroness vocalist/guitarist John Baizley in a press release. “In many ways, this upcoming tour feels similar the very first Baroness tour in 2003: we don’t know what to expect, we’re through sitting on the sidelines, and we can’t wait to climb onstage. During the past two years we’ve tried to keep ourselves as busy as possible: writing, recording and rehearsing insofar as the pandemic would allow. Throughout that time, one fact has become increasingly clear… we are built as a live/touring band. The most powerful and important aspects of music reveal themselves only through shared experience. Baroness’ music is designed to be shared; our audience has always been the final and most important member of the band. Quite simply, it doesn’t feel right without YOU! We’ve started counting down the hours in anticipation of that first blissful moment when the lights dim and the room falls silent, when we can once again commune with our audience. We’ve missed you all dearly and we’re really excited to see the setlists you all design for us.”
Tickets go on sale on Friday, October 1. Find more info here.
