Baroness recently completed work on their Relapse Records debut, entitled "Red Album."
Recorded at the Jam Room in Columbia, SC with Phillip Cope (of Kylesa) and mastered by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound, the effort is scheduled for an early-September release. Advance song titles include: "The Birthing", "Wanderlust", "Teeth of a Cogwheel", "O'appalachia" and "Grad."
"Red Album" is the first Baroness recording to feature second guitarist Brian Blickle. The band is rounded out by Allen Blickle on drums, Summer Welch on bass, and John Baizley on guitar and vocals.
Relapse Records has announced the signing of Savannah, GA's BARONESS.
BARONESS (Allen Blickle - drums, Summer Welch - bass, John Baizley - guitar, vocals, and Brian Blickle - guitar) recently finished writing its first proper full-length. The band will enter the Jam Room in Columbia, SC in April with Phillip Cope (of KYLESA) at the production helm to begin recording its Relapse debut.
Comments Baizley: "We have completed writing and formulating the vast bulk of material that will comprise our first full-length. We have been actively writing and performing this material since the beginning of last summer and have toured Europe, playing a good cross section of the new album. This will be our first recording with our second guitar player (Brian Blickle), who has been in the band for nearly two years. The album is expected to be 10 tracks, and will have no formal title. Upon its release, we plan on touring the U.S. and Europe extensively in support of it."
BARONESS previously released two EPs ("First" and "Second" respectively) on local Savannah indie Hyperrealist Records and will see the release of their "third" EP by way of a split with THE UNPERSONS, titled "A Grey Sigh in a Flower Husk", via At A Loss Recordings imminently.
