Released last June 14th, Baroness newest album Gold & Grey has catapulted the band to a whole new level of attention, both in musical and popularity terms. Press and followers have praised the release – the final chapter in their chromatic-themed albums – as a cohesive and very diverse album, encapsulating everything the band is about, while still covering new ground. The band is currently in the middle of a North American tour, and will hit Europe in the fall. 

Contributor Rodrigo Altaf was tasked to review Gold & Grey, and his article was praised by the band as one of the best chronicles about the release. Not happy with that alone, he also caught up to Baroness‘ drummer Sebastian Thomson and they chatted at length about the compositional dynamics in the band, the reasons behind the controversial mix of the album, the recent and future touring plans, their common love for Stewart Copeland drumming and much more.
