Baroness have unveiled a new song from their upcoming album, Stone. The track “Shine” is the third tune released from the LP in advance of its September 15th release.
“Shine” starts out with a quiet minute-long instrumental intro before singer-guitarists John Baizley and Gina Gleason kick the song into high gear with their dueling vocals and mighty riffs, as bassist Nick Jost and drummer Sebastian Thomson provide a powerful rhythm section. The six-and-a-half minute track takes the listener on a thrilling journey that’s both heavy and melodic.
The new tune marks the final preview song released ahead of Stone‘s arrival. It follows previous singles “Last Word” and “Beneath the Rose.”
Meanwhile, Baroness have beefed up the support acts for their already-stacked fall North American tour (tickets available here). Hoaxed, Destiny Bond, Spotlights, and Zorn join previously announced openers Jesus Piece, Portrayal of Guilt, Primitive Man, KEN Mode, Wayfarer, Chat Pile, Vile Creature, Soul Glo, Sheer Mag, Escuela Grind, Midwife, Imperial Triumphant, Uniform, Agriculture and Cloud Rat.
Each show will feature two or three of the aforementioned support bands, making for a “mini-festival” vibe in each city.
