Baroness [Ebru Yildiz]

Baroness are back with a brand new song “Last Word.” The track is the first single from the band’s forthcoming album Stone. The record arrives on September 15 via Abraxan Hymns. Stream the official video for “Last Word” below now.

“An important through line in Baroness is we don’t like to repeat ourselves,” frontman John Baizley explains. “It’s all about the willingness to take risks. When I was younger, the whole point of music was to be different, not to do the same thing, and not to listen to parents or play by the rules. That’s kind of goofy, but in practice, it works. It’s really sort of terrifying to be at the sixth record in your career and think that you’ll have to keep up with your history rather than continually invent. So, we doubled down on continuously inventing to see where it takes us. I think this record is a good reflection of that. STONE is a lot more alive, more direct.”

Baroness have simultaneously announced the “Sweet Oblivion Tour,” a seven-week trek that sees the band traversing North America this Fall. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 23, at 10 am local time. Baroness are bringing along some of their favorite bands including Jesus Piece, Portrayal of Guilt, Primitive Man, KEN Mode, Wayfarer, Chat Pile, Vile Creature, Soul Glo, Sheer Mag, Escuela Grind, Midwife, Hoaxed, Empire State Bastard, Cloud Rat, Imperial Triumphant, Uniform and Agriculture on select dates, with more support acts to be announced.
