Baroness Announce Co-Headlining Spring Tour With Against Me!

Baroness, 2019

Baroness have barely stopped touring since the 2019 release of their acclaimed fifth studio album, Gold & Grey, and that commitment to the road is not about to end. The progressive alt-metal band just announced a month-long, co-headlining spring tour with punk rockers Against Me! The run will kick off May 1st at Detroit’s Majestic Theatre. Destroy Boys are set to support on the first half of the trek, while Drug Church will open on the second half.

“It’s extremely exciting to get back out on the road in the U.S., this time with our friends in Against Me!” Baroness bandleader John Baizley enthused in a statement. “We love tours that offer this much variety of sound. While our styles or sound may differ, we share some background in common. Our two bands originate from the deeply Southern U.S., we’re both products of the independent/DIY community and as we’ve grown, we’ve both worked tirelessly to maintain an ever-evolving independent and creative spirit. When we were a very young band, we looked up to and admired Against Me! In ’04, or ’05, I remember our vehicle breaking down in Gainesville, Fla. While we were struggling in vain to fix a road-worn vehicle, we ran into Against Me! (whom we did not know at the time). After hearing our troubles, and without a moment’s hesitation, they helped an out-of-town band of strangers fix their vehicle and get back out on the road. From that day forward, I’ve had a profound respect for the band … we cannot wait to get on tour with them.
