It has been nearly two months since U.S. progressive post-rock band BARONESS released their fifth studio album, ‘Gold & Grey‘, via the band’s label, Abraxan Hymns.
Currently out on the road touring to support the album in the United States, the band has periodically performed select acoustic sets along the way. Recently, John Dyer Baizley (guitar, vocals) and Gina Gleason (guitar, vocals)* dropped by The Key WXPN radio station in Philadelphia, PA for such a performance.
The station has now made that intimate event available for streaming and, to be honest, it is quite good. It is unknown whether any of the acoustic appearances will see some sort of official release at any point, but you can experience the Philly stop here. We are also including a new documentary video from BARONESS about the making of ‘Gold & Grey‘, entitled “Vaguely Familiar“.
Acoustic Set Songs:
“Chlorine + Wine”
“I’m Already Gone”
*BARONESS also includes drummer Sebastian Thomson (drums) and bassist/keyboardist Nick Jost.
