Baroness Talk Touring Behind Purple in New Clip; U.S. Tour Kicks Off Aug. 12

Baroness, who kick off a new round of U.S. tour dates next Friday, Aug. 12, in Washington, D.C., discuss their return to the road and the warm reception they’ve been greeted with in a new behind-the-scenes clip: https://youtu.be/m5_JfihMVaA.

The six-week outing includes stops at a number of festivals including Hopscotch, Houston Open Air, Psycho Las Vegas and Monster Energy Rock Allegiance. Baroness will also play this year’s Aftershock Festival as well as the newly launched Sound on Sound Festival in McDade, Texas.

“The cathartic experience of playing live music has not changed over the 13 years of performing,” John Baizley said in a recent interview with the SF Weekly. “But the sense of relief and release I feel as an adult is as intense, if not more than, when I was younger.  The response to this record has been really, really overwhelming. There have been some pretty dramatic changes in the way that our audiences react to our songs, and I couldn’t be happier about that.”

Tickets for all non-festival performances are available via YourBaroness.com. Pallbearer opens on all non-festival dates.
