Georgian alt-metal group Baroness will be bringing their critically acclaimed Gold & Grey album tour to Hartford this July with special guest Torche. The show will be at The Webster on July 14th. Event page here.
For those perhaps not quite familiar with Baroness, or the whole color spectrum thing, the band has spent the last decade or so creating albums paired with specific colors, including 2007’s Red, 2009’s Blue, 2012’s Yellow & Green, 2015’s Purple, and now, the final in the series, this year’s Gold & Grey. It is possible that the band simply wants to move on from the whole colors thing, but it also could be that all of the cool colors are now taken.
Apparently, Gold & Grey has been getting some really a positive reception, with a 91/100 score from Metacritic and reviewers saying nice things like “To say this album is epic would be an understatement; it’s a work of art in the truest sense” (NME). and “Baroness currently find themselves in a place of great maturity, exhibiting superb musicianship. It’s fitting for Gold & Grey to be the conclusion of the band’s color-themed albums. The array of instrumentation and emotion throughout not only make Gold & Grey a joy to listen to, but also an achievement of which Baroness can truly be proud” (Consequence of Sound). But you listeners can be the judge of that, of course.
