Published Jul 10, 2012Savannah, GA-based sludge metal heroes Baroness are set to release their new double LP Yellow & Green on July 17 via Relapse, but you can get in on the album early by streaming here at Exclaim.ca.
The album maintains the band's knack for colourful titles, following up 2009's Blue Record and their debut Red Album.
The band, whose members grew up together in Virginia, specifically took 2011 off to work on crafting a "more challenging" record. It was recorded in Hoboken, NJ with Blue Record producer John Congleton.
Frontman John Baizley previously stated that the new material is "a little hookier" than previous efforts, though the band maintain their mission statement: "keep an open mind, confront challenges, avoid repetition and take the music to diverse audiences."
Now you can hear for yourself how Baroness have progressed and experimented on Yellow & Green. Stream the new album below, and head to the Relapse site to pre-order the record.
