Baroness to play a series of in-store acoustic performances, share music video for "Shine"
Official press release:
Baroness, who are days away from the release of their highly-anticipated new album, STONE (Sept. 15, Abraxan Hymns), celebrate the 10-track collection's arrival with a series of acoustic record store performances, kicking off with a release day outing at New York City's Rough Trade.
Guitarist John Baizley shared:
Independent music stores are a huge part of our musical background," John Baizley shares. "We discovered so much music in them as teenagers; they undoubtedly had a profound effect on all of our development as young artists (they still do). We are thrilled to be able to travel around the East Coast this September to play stripped down sets in some of our favorite shops.
Guitarist Gina Gleason added:
We're really excited for the opportunity to play these intimate performances and to connect with the fans as well as the record shop owners and operators who have been so incredibly supportive of us over the years.
The announcement of the in-stores comes in tandem with the release of a Baroness-directed video for the recently released song, "Shine", which Gleason, noting the band's slate of DIY videos for STONE, said "feels like our most cinematic endeavor thus far!"
"Shine" is the third pre-release single from the Philadelphia-meets-Brooklyn foursome, with the band previously sharing "Last Word" and "Beneath The Rose."
