The remaining members of Baroness are ready to return to the road for the first time since an August 2012 bus crash left nine band and crew members severely injured and led to the depature of drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Matt Maggioni.
The band’s comeback tour begins in Philadelphia on May 24th and leads up to the band’s appearance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. Joining frontman John Baizley and guitarist Pete Adams will be Nick Jost (bass) and Sebastian Thomson (drums).
Adams said in a statement: “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!
