"Throw Me An Anchor", the new single from BARONESS, can be streamed below. The song is taken from the band's fifth album, "Gold & Grey", which will be released on June 14 via Abraxan Hymns. The bulk of the disc was recorded at producer Dave Fridmann's (THE FLAMING LIPS, MOGWAI) upstate New York Tarbox Road Studio.
"The term I kept using was that I wanted to create something that was more kaleidoscopic than our former records," says guitarist/vocalist John Baizley of the band's approach to the new album. "We were trying to say something new with our instruments, with our sound intact, with the spirit of the band intact, but not applying the typical conventions when possible."
BARONESS recently announced a five-week U.S. "Grey & Gold Tour", kicking off on July 11. A European tour with VOLBEAT will follow in the fall.
BARONESS released its Grammy-nominated fourth album, "Purple", in 2015.
The band is Baizley, Gina Gleason (guitar), Nick Jost (bass) and Sebastian Thomson (drums).
