“The process of recreating the soundscape of Gold & Grey for a live setting has been fun and inspiring to us as we forward to new musical territories,” says guitarist Gina Gleason. “We’re excited to share this experience with everyone!” As a band that has continually integrated the visual and auditory realms of art and music, Culture Lab LIC at The Plaxall Gallery is a fitting backdrop for Baroness’ first live performance of 2020. Featuring a 12,000 square foot converted warehouse, the non-profit is dedicated to supporting the development of art, theater, music and community services.
Gold & Grey (http://smarturl.it/baroness-goldandgrey) arrived in June of 2019 with Stereogum saying the collection “is the best thing Baroness has ever done… a masterpiece,” NME declaring it “a work of art in the truest sense of the word “ and NPR, noting the synchronicity between Baroness’ music and imagery, observing that “Gold & Grey feels like a callback to the heyday of the rock album as art object.” The 17-track release debuted atop Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums Sales and Independent Albums’ Charts and found the band gracing the covers of both Revolver and Kerrang! magazines. The band documented the album’s creation in a series of videos, dubbed “Making Gold & Grey” (https://smarturl.it/makinggoldandgrey
