Grammy-award nominated heavy rock band Baroness mark their much- anticipated return with new album, STONE. Their sixth record overall and third released via Abraxan Hymns, STONE finds the Philadelphia-based quartet of John Baizley (guitars/vocals/illustration), Gina Gleason (guitars), Nick Jost (bass), and Sebastian Thomson (drums) streamlining the momentous multi-genre vocabulary of its critically-acclaimed predecessor Gold & Grey (2019). This is still very much Baroness—just refocused for efficiency and rethought as a consequence of stability. STONE’s most prominent tracks, “Last Word,” “Beneath the Rose,” “Shine,” and “Anodyne,” reflect thoughtfully, groove deeply, and refract tumult effortlessly.
While Baroness wrote STONE, Baizley recorded and pre-mixed it. After the group finished tracking drums, guitars, and bass, they took everything back to Baizley’s unfinished basement - where parts of Gold & Grey were also recorded—in Pennsylvania to put down the vocals and add other bells and whistles. STONE was then handed off to Grammy-nominated mix master Joe Barresi (Kyuss, Alice In Chains) for final mixing and polishing and Grammy- winning mastering guru Bob Ludwig (Led Zeppelin, Nirvana) at Gateway Mastering Studios.
The indie exclusive ruby red LP is housed in a heavyweight printed inner sleeve inside of a spot UV gatefold jacket with black flood and a four-panel lyric booklet. All artwork by John Dyer Baizley.
