Grammy-nominated exploratory rock band Baroness formed in Savannah, Georgia in 2003, a home-base where they formed their creative ideology, booked their own shows, and hand-printed their merchandise with the DIY/punk ethic they had shared since adolescence.

Now, the band return with their most ambitious work to date, fifth album Gold & Grey. Set for release on the band’s own Abraxan Hymns, Gold & Grey spills triumphantly past genre barriers, their anthemic alt-metal hooks ricocheting between the circuitous twists of prog and jazz, the moody swirls of space-rock and noise, and the hypnotic pulses of trip-hop and 20th Century minimalism.
