Baroness share “Borderlines,” detail new album ‘Gold & Grey’

Baroness Gold and Grey

Baroness have been talking about their anticipated new album for a few months now, and as promised, they debuted its lead single live at the opening night of their ongoing co-headlining tour with Deafheaven. Now they’ve officially announced the album and revealed the studio version of the lead single.

The record is called Gold & Grey and that’s its very vivid, John Baizley-designed artwork above. They once again made the album with Flaming Lips collaborator Dave Fridmann (who also worked on 2015’s Purple), and here’s what Baizley says about it:

Our goal is, was, and will always be to write increasingly superior, more honest and compelling songs, and to develop a more unique and challenging sound. I’m sure we have just finished our best, most adventurous album to date. We dug incredibly deep, challenged ourselves and recorded a record I’m positive we could never again replicate. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to know Sebastian, Nick and Gina as both my bandmates and my friends. They have pushed me to become a better songwriter, musician and vocalist. We’re all extremely excited for this release, which includes quite a few ‘firsts’ for the band, and we’re thrilled to be back on tour to play these psychotic songs for our fans. Expect some surprises.

You can already hear some of those surprises on the six-minute lead single “Borderlines.” It starts out sounding like the kind of melodic heavy rock they’ve been doing on their last two albums, but it takes a few unexpected turns, and ends up in very psychedelic territory. Listen, watch the video, and check out the 17-song tracklist below. Gold & Grey comes out June 14 via Abraxan Hymns (pre-order).

As mentioned, Baroness’ tour with Deafheaven and opener Zeal & Ardor includes shows at NJ’s Starland Ballroom on April 5 and NYC’s Terminal 5 on April 12 (tickets). All remaining dates are listed below.
