    The hype for Baroness’ forthcoming LP, Gold & Grey, is building as its June 14th release grows closer. The band has shared the latest single, the passionate, vocal-dominant “Throw Me an Anchor”, and has announced a seven-week European tour in support of Volbeat, which starts in September. Stream the track and check out the dates below.

    “Throw Me an Anchor” maintains the kinetic musicianship and emotional expression that defined the previous singles. John Baizley’s vocal performance takes the lead here, as he hits a vastness of ranges and soaring melodies over a bed of progressive riffing and complex percussion from drummer Sebastian Thomson. The instrumental coda lets Thomson take over, breaking into prog rhythms as a textural wash of synth guides the track to its conclusion. For its relatively short 4-minute duration, a lot happens.

    In addition to previously releasing the songs “Borderlines” and “Seasons” from Gold & Grey, the band recently partnered with Adult Swim to release another album track, “Front Toward Enemy”, on the Metal Swim 2 compilation alongside acts like Sunn O))), Eyehategod, and more.

    It’s lining up to be a busy season for Baroness as they head out in support of the new record. The band embarks on a short run of acoustic in-store performances in the week leading up to the record release before hitting the road for a headlining North American jaunt, and then heading overseas with Volbeat. Tickets for the European dates are on sale May 24th, and fans can get tickets for previously announced shows here.
