Pete Adams of Baroness (and Valkyrie) said back in April that the new Baroness album is three weeks from being done. Now, a photo of the band was posted to Apple Music, saying the band is, “recording with Dave Fridmann at Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, New York. ” Fridmann is known for his work the Flaming Lips, Weezer, Spoon and so many more bands.
Said Adams back in April, about the new album:
Well, I will say this: Not to give too much away, but this record, it’s a rocker. We definitely did a lot of experimenting with Yellow and Green, and a lot of ideas that we wanted to just get out. We were on a writing streak that year, so we just absolutely were cranking out songs. We have a new rhythm section now, and it’s the first time we’ve written with the new rhythm section. So we had a little bit of a hump to get over. And once we did everyone was super excited. It’s a rockin’, uptempo record. I’m excited about it. We’re all pretty stoked.
This new album from Baroness would be their first since 2012s Yellow & Green, but don’t expect another double-album. “I don’t feel like I’m talking out of turn or giving away an secrets,” said John Baizley in 2014, “but we’re definitely not doing another double record.”
