Baroness are playing The Fest in October, and they also have some 2022 dates lined up, including some with Mastodon, in Europe and the UK. They've been hinting that more shows are on the way, and they've now announced a run of special all-request fall dates at intimate venues in the US.

"I cannot remember any moment in the history of this band where we’ve been more excited to tour than we are today," vocalist/guitarist John Baizley says. "In many ways, this upcoming tour feels similar the very first Baroness tour in 2003: we don’t know what to expect, we’re through sitting on the sidelines, and we can’t wait to climb onstage. During the past two years we’ve tried to keep ourselves as busy as possible: writing, recording and rehearsing insofar as the pandemic would allow. Throughout that time, one fact has become increasingly clear... we are built as a live/touring band. The most powerful and important aspects of music reveal themselves only through shared experience. Baroness’ music is designed to be shared; our audience has always been the final and most important member of the band."

"Quite simply, it doesn’t feel right without YOU!," he continues. "We’ve started counting down the hours in anticipation of that first blissful moment when the lights dim and the room falls silent, when we can once again commune with our audience. We’ve missed you all dearly and we’re really excited to see the setlists you all design for us. There’s never been a better time to put the trust and control of our music in your capable hands. Electric or acoustic, sung or screamed, from the EPs to the LPs: we’re busy preparing for everything from those 6 or 7 hours of recorded music. Furthermore, we thought the pandemic had stolen from us the opportunity to play Gold & Grey in front of American audiences and we look forward to playing those songs for you as well. Finally, we’re really thrilled to have the opportunity to play up close and personal in some venues we haven’t typically played in recent years. It feels so good to share all of this news with you, we’ve missed this more than we can possibly explain. We hope to see you all soon!"

The shows begin in November 6 in Baltimore, and hit Richmond, Indianapolis, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Cleveland, Brooklyn, Boston and more, wrapping up with a pair of Philadelphia shows in December. Attendees will receive limited edition posters, and you can see all dates below.

The Brooklyn show happens on December 7 at Saint Vitus Bar, and tickets go on sale Friday 10/1 at 10 AM, with an artist presale starting Thursday 9/30 at 10 AM.
