Here's the first song off the upcoming Baroness album.
The long-awaited new album from Savannah, Georgia via Lexington, Virginia metal outfit Baroness is being released by Relapse Records on 17 June. It had to be tough to do a follow up to 2009's brilliant Blue Record, which itself followed a groundbreaking effort in 2007's Red Album. So what'd they do? Only what any badass band would do -- make a double album! It's called Yellow & Green, and by the sound of the new song, "Take My Bones Away", they haven't gotten comfortable in their approach.
You can pre-order the album from Relapse here. And, because I'm always trying to go that extra mile for those willing to suffer my writing and music taste, you can enjoy the genius of live Baroness in the video below. It's my favorite tune off Blue Record, "A Horse Called Golgotha", followed by a part of "Swollen & Halo" from the same record, from a festival show in the Netherlands in 2010.
