Baroness are set to kick off a North American tour with Deafheaven and Zeal & Ardor, and to get fans even more excited for the stellar bill, the Savannah, Georgia, rockers have unveiled the first snippet of new music from their upcoming album.
In a short video clip posted on the band’s YouTube channel (listen below), Baroness share a few seconds of a brand-new track with the words “hear the rest of this new song on tour” appearing on the screen. We also see and hear frontman John Baizley singing a single line from the song, which is both heavy and melodic.
Update – March 9th: You can watch the live debut of “Borderlines” here.
In addition to the music, Baroness are teasing a color scheme for their new album. With a current discography consisting of Red Album (2007), Blue Record (2009), Yellow & Green (2012), and Purple (2015), the band has offered up the Pantone color codes 871 c and 8 c as clues for the new disc. A little research suggests that the new album could be titled Gold & Gray or perhaps, Gold & Silver.
