Baroness return to the road minus two members!

Posted on by Oran

Baroness’s first North American tour supporting their critically-acclaimed album,Yellow & Green, kicks off May 24 with a performance at Union Transfer in John Baizley’s adopted hometown of Philadelphia.
“It’s hard to find the words to express how excited we are to announce this tour,” explained guitar player Pete Adams. “Seven months ago, who knew when it would be or even if we could get back on the road.  But here we are, picking right back up where we left off.  A heartfelt thanks to everyone’s unconditional love and support for us through, let’s hope, the hardest time this band will ever see.  We told you we’d be back so let’s do this thing!”
Baizley confirmed that drummer Allen Blickle and bass player Matt Maggioni would not be touring with the band via a web posting on Mar. 25 (, adding that the pair’s departure is “not sensational” and “do[es] not come with hard feelings.”  Baizley went on to add that the band has already found two musicians, Nick Jost (bass) and Sebastian Thomson (drums),  “who can approach our music with passion and vitality.”
