Baroness announced their eagerly awaited return to the road in early April with guitar player Pete Adams saying: “It’s hard to find the words to express how excited we are to announce this tour. Seven months ago, who knew when it would be or even if we could get back on the road.  But here we are, picking right back up where we left off.  A heartfelt thanks to everyone’s unconditional love and support for us through, let’s hope, the hardest time this band will ever see.  We told you we’d be back so let’s do this thing!”

Baroness was sidelined when their tour bus plunged off a viaduct in the Bath area of England on Aug. 15, leaving the band and crew members with a variety of serious injuries.   Yellow & Green had been released less than a month when the accident happened, and with just four shows remaining in the six-week trek before the band could return home to enjoy the praise that was being heaped upon the double-album.  Singer/guitar player Baizley suffered extensive injuries, which, at one point, clouded the future of both the band and his return to music.

In October, after an unprecedented outpouring from fans, peers and friends, Baizley posted an open letter in which he painfully recounted the horrific crash (, ending the ten-paragraph note with a fierce determination to return to music and touring.  By December, a clip of Baizley and Adams performing an acoustic rendition of “Stretchmarker” was posted on the Baroness website ( with a brief note that started with “Simply put: it’s time to get back to it.”  With that, Baroness’s return to touring was not a matter of if but when.  Adams and Baizley made their first public appearance with a performance in late January at Decibel Magazine’s 100th issue celebration in Philadelphia.  Earlier this month, Baizley ventured to SXSW for a solo performance at Invisible Oranges/Brooklyn Vegan’s showcase as well as pair of art exhibits (Baizley’s art can be viewed at
