“Um es kurz zu machen: Es ist an der Zeit wieder auf die Beine zu kommen.” So heißt es in dem Statement des Baroness-Gitarristen/Sänger John Baizley. Die Band scheint sich nach ihrem schweren Busunfall langsam wieder zu erholen und in Spiellaune zu kommen.

Neben dem Statement, das ihr weiter unten lesen könnt, posteten Baizley und Pete Adams eine Akustik-Performance ihres YELLOW & GREEN-Songs ‘Stretchmarker’.

Das Video dazu gibt es hier zu sehen:

Das Statement von John Baizley im O-Ton lest ihr hier:

Simply put: it’s time to get back to it. Since my belated and thankful return to the USA (after our painful test in motorcoach-aeronautics) i can definitively say i’ve exhausted my reserve of potential leisure activities (there’s not that many of them, after all). in recent weeks, i’ve come dreadfully close to boredom, and in those moments i can’t help but focus on my glaring physical infirmities.

television offers little respite from this relative stasis; i’m sure by now i have sampled every biker-meth-dealer-zombie-low-talking-cop-crime-scene-serial-killer-real-housewife soap opera that is currently being broadcast (and there’s no small number of them). i’ve tried to fill my weekly routine with as much physical therapy as possible but the truth is, PT is not fun, and its benefits come with a great deal of mental/physical/spiritual pain and struggle.

furthermore, i believe am getting a touch of Stockholm syndrome when it comes to my doctors and therapists (the highlight of my week should NOT involve a clinic). music might be the best therapy i have right now. perhaps it’s both the cause and the cure (the thought has crossed my mind); but i feel lost without it.

Pete and i have just spent a long week surveying our musical wreckage and, surprisingly, we are quite well and intact. sure, there’s some substantial obstacles to overcome before we write, record or perform any time soon; but we still have everything we need to get “back in” that particular “saddle again”. Most of my peers are familiar with such high-school-gym-teacher poeticisms as “risk equals reward” and “no pain, no gain”; but did any of us every really believe there was any real wisdom in those adolescent platitudes? i didn’t. i am, however, starting to understand the essence of these and many of our other favorite cliches.

as odd as it might be for me to write these “updates” after 10 years of personal silence on the internet, i feel that i owe everyone who’s voiced or given their support to  Baroness a brief synopsis of our situation and more importantly a heartfelt thanks. honestly, it has made this ordeal much easier on me. what little publicity that surrounds our crash has given voice to so many people who have shared their own stories of injury, trauma and struggle with us, and has furthered my own faith in the communicative and universal strength of music. as every singer on every stage has nightly said, “we wouldn’t be where we are without you.” thanks everyone. we look forward to seeing you soon. here’s a short clip of a song we wrote.

METAL HAMMER präsentiert: Baroness

Nachdem der Vorgänger GOLD & GREY einen Schlussstrich unter Baroness’ farblich gekennzeichnete Albumserie gesetzt hat, schlägt STONE ein neues Kapitel in der Band-Geschichte auf. Während eine Song-Vorabveröffentlichung wie ‘Beneath The Rose’ noch Jim Morrison und Henry Rollins im Spoken Word-Clinch evozierte, ist nach vollständigem Albumgenuss klar, dass damit lediglich zwei von vielen diametral entgegengesetzten Dynamikpunkten definiert wurden. Denn das sechste Album der Band entpuppt sich in vielerlei Hinsicht als akustische Wundertüte. METAL HAMMER präsentiert: Baroness 03.08. Karlsruhe, Substage 05.08. Saarbrücken, Garage 06.08. Aschaffenburg, Colos-Saal 09.08. Leipzig, Werk 2 Baroness + Graveyard + Pallbearer 02.11. Berlin, Huxleys 11.11. Wiesbaden, Schlachthof 13.11.…
