Baroness Replace Guitarist On Eve of Tour

Baroness Replace Guitarist On Eve of Tour
As their epic headlining slot on the upcoming Exclaim! Aggressive Tendencies Tour begins tonight (Sept 23), Savannah, GA metal quartet Baroness have announced the departure of founding guitarist Brian Blickle. However, instead of leaving on bad terms, Blickle left surrounded by some brotherly love from his sibling, Aaron Blickle.

In a post on the band’s MySpace blog, Aaron had nothing but love to spread:

Please welcome our new guitarist Peter Adams to Baroness. He is a long-time friend of the band and we are very excited to have him on our side. Peter is quite the talent. An all around great musician. He also plays in the VA band Valkyrie.

Brian played his last show with us at HOVE festival in Norway, which was a great last performance. He has decided to go back to school and pursue a career in law. We are very happy for him and know he will be very successful in his future endeavors. As a band member and brother, I will dearly miss having him on tour. Love you brother.
