Baroness amazing ‘as-live-as-possible’ performance of ‘Tourniquet’ for fans online

Posted by on April 6, 2020


Well, we’re all stuck in our homes because of the awful COVID-19.  Baroness, one of our favorite bands here at Metal Insider, livens up our existences a bit with this incredible recorded-by-remote video of all band members performing “Tourniquet” from their latest record Gold and Grey.

Baroness commented:

“Here’s an as-live-as-possible performance of Tourniquet that we made over the course of a couple days during this period of isolation. We have all maintained a rigid policy of social-distancing since becoming aware of this pandemic; which has unfortunately deprived us of our much preferred means of playing music. Throughout this crisis, the overall safety and responsibility of our global human community far outweighs the individual value of any show, festival or tour. We’re refocusing and redoubling our energy to adapt to this situation as it unfolds. As difficult as it seems to navigate the effects of this virus, the isolation has not stripped us of our passion for Baroness’ music. Playing music so far from our bandmates will never be particularly natural. However, the experience of making this video through emails, texts and phone calls has been a powerful reminder of how inspiring and invigorating music can be in times of stress, struggle and confusion. We hope you enjoy this performance. It isn’t meant to highlight musical perfection or precision. Personally, it serves as a reminder that, no matter what situation we face, we are still able to enjoy friendship, family and community through something as simple as a song. Isolated but never alone…”
