LP - BARONESS - STONE Indie stores exclusive Ruby Red vinyl

BARONESS will release its sixth album, "Stone", on September 15 via Abraxan Hymns.

BARONESS frontman John Baizley comments: "An important through line in BARONESS is we don't like to repeat ourselves. It's all about the willingness to take risks. When I was younger, the whole point of music was to be different, not to do the same thing, and not to listen to parents or play by the rules. That's kind of goofy, but in practice, it works. It's really sort of terrifying to be at the sixth record in your career and think that you'll have to keep up with your history rather than continually invent. So, we doubled down on continuously inventing to see where it takes us. I think this record is a good reflection of that. 'Stone' is a lot more alive, more direct."

That voluntary evolution brought the now Philadelphia-meets-Brooklyn based band to the border town of Barryville, New York. Electing to produce "Stone" themselves, the members of BARONESS spent a month shrouded amidst the pines, holed up in a vacation rental that became an impromptu recording space replete with big, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and brick/glass walls. While they wrote "Stone", Baizley recorded and pre-mixed it in real time, giving each song on "Stone" its own sonic treatment. After the group finished tracking drums, guitars, and bass, they took everything back to Baizley's basement studio to record vocals before handing the album off to mix master Joe Barresi (KYUSS, TOOL) and mastering guru Bob Ludwig (LED ZEPPELIN, NIRVANA).
