John Baizley at Invisible Oranges 2013 SXSW showcase (more by Greg Cristman)
When Baroness, who suffered from a tragic bus crash last year, were announced for Bonnaroo and Chaos in Tejas this year, the signs looked pretty good that the band would finally tour again. Then frontman John Baizley issued a statement that their bassist and drummer would no longer be touring with the band (and they found musicians to take their places), and now Baroness have finally announced a full tour surrounding those festival dates!
There's no NYC date scheduled yet, but the tour kicks off in John Baizely's "adopted hometown" of Philly on May 24 at Union Transfer and continues through their slot at Bonnaroo in June. Support on select dates comes from Inter Arma (who play NYC soon), True Widow, and Coliseum. Hopefully a NYC date will be added to the tour (maybe House of Vans, where they would have played last summer?).
All dates are listed, along with the "Take My Bones Away" video, below...

Soulful country-inflected crooner Daughn Gibson played Union Hall on Friday (5/11), one of two dates in NYC for the Pearls & Brass drummer in celebration of his new LP All Hell. The Union Hall show saw Daughn Gibson play support to NYC band Lightouts along with a solo set from Todd Goldstein of ARMS (who played some solo/acoustic material from his band). Pictures of Daughn Gibson and Todd Goldstein are in this post.
Daugh Gibson's set featured sampled beats and live guitar, with the Carlisle, Pennsylvania vocalist doing his Johnny-Cash style vocals over top of it all. His live vocals were impeccable, and Gibson's coordinated dance moves and likable stage persona had one set of ladies in the front row going crazy.
Daughn Gibson went on to join True Widow at Union Pool on Saturday (5/12) as part of the latter's campaign of the East Coast.
More pictures from Union Hall are below...
Texas shoegaze trio True Widow, who we've written about HERE and HERE, will hit the road later this month for a string of dates that bring them to Brooklyn for a show at Union Pool on May 12th with Daughn Gibson. Tickets for the show go on sale at noon (4/13). All dates and a video below...
Boris, in pillow and undergarment form
Boris's new LP offerings Attention Please and Heavy Rocks (2011) represent a bit of a stylistic change for the ever-shifting Japanese band. As such, they've recruited some bands outside of the usual suspects in their upcoming North American tour announced today. Boris, who is currently in the EU with Russian Circles, will hit the road in the US for dates with Asobi Seksu, Tera Melos, True Widow (who play Union Pool in August), Master Musicians of Bukkake, Liturgy and others in October. Full tour schedule is below, including an NYC date with Asobi Seksu and Liturgy at Irving Plaza on 10/27. Ticketing info is forthcoming.
All tour dates and a video for Boris's "Hope/Riot Sugar" (a song from each new LP in a single video) is below. For all of you superfans, keep a lookout for Boris - Attention Please underwear and/or pillows (above) which go on presale on 7/30.
After recently completing a trek that included SXSW and dates with Trail of Dead & Surfer Blood, True Widow will head out on tour with Kurt Vile in August. That tour reaches NYC, but that's where Kurt and True Widow split ways. Kurt goes on to open for M Ward @ Wellmont and Sonic Youth @ Williamsburg Waterfront, while True Widow headlines Union Pool on August 13th with Bad Dream. All dates are listed below.
True Widow released their new LP As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth earlier this year. Check out two tracks from that release above. All tour dates, and a recent video for "Skull Eyes" and some live video too, below...
Reverb-drenched shoegaze, 70s-riffery and the slow-burn of Low converge on the latest True Widow, a Dallas band whose new LP As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth, via Kemado. The record is currently up for preorder and features "NH" and "Skull Eyes", the former of which premieres in this post. Download both above, or stream them below.
True Widow will be at SXSW, logging time at the Kemado showcase at Valhalla on 3/17 (with new-look Zoroaster, Rwake, Christian Mistress, and many others), and at the Thrasher Deathmatch party at Scoot Inn on 3/19. In May they hit the road with Trail of Dead and Surfer Blood which brings them to NYC twice: Bowery Ballroom on 4/29 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on 5/13.
Surfer Blood are also playing SXSW, including the free BrooklynVegan party Wednesday at Emo's, and Trail of Dead will be in Austin too. You can catch them at our free Saturday party at Swan Dive/Barbarella.
All True Widow tour dates, a video, and those song streams are below.
Salome at BV-BBG at CMJ (more by Samantha Marble)
Wow just turned into OMFG. Wolves In The Throne Room and Salome have been announced as support for the previously discussed 3/11 Shrinebuilder show at NYU. Ticket Info is forthcoming, but NYU students can expect to pay $2 and non-NYU-ers pay a whopping $5.
And while we are on the topic of killer bands, we'd like to announce that Salome will play the two-stage BrooklynVegan Day Party on March 17th at Emo's in Austin, Texas! For those counting at home, that's Salome plus Torche and Fucked Up! More artist announcements are on the way.
Salome will also play the 20 Buck Spin / Profound Lore official SXSW showcase at Headhunters in Austin on 3/19. As expected, the labels have teamed up for a killer lineup of underground metal greats: Yakuza, Liturgy, The Endless Blockade, Coffinworm, White Mice, + two more bands TBA.
That same night (3/19) at Spiro's, just down the street from the 20 Buck Spin/Profound Lore Showcase will be the WFMU/Aquarius showcase which, much like last year, is brimming with great and forward thinking music of heavy/punk persuasion. Liturgy will also be featured at the two-stage show along with Speedwolf, Iron Man, Moon Duo, Shit and Shine, Pierced Arrows, Dengue Fever, Epileptinomicon, Drunkdriver, Home Blitz, Headdress, Sonny & the Sunsets, True Widow, and Todd. For more on the upcoming WFMU show, head to their site. Decisions!
Drunkdriver's other upcoming shows include other SXSW gigs and Cake Shop in NYC on 3/14 with Todd.
