Grammy-nominated heavy rock band Baroness are back with their new album STONE. The Philly-based quartet of John Baizley (guitar/vocals/illustration), Gina Gleason (guitar), Nick Jost (bass) and Sebastian Thomson (drums) embrace a vast multi-genre vocabulary on their sixth album, STONE of the critically acclaimed predecessor Gold & Gray (2019). This is still very much Baroness - just refocused to be more efficient and rethought for stability. STONE's standout tracks, "Last Word," "Beneath the Rose," "Shine," and "Anodyne," reflect thoughtfully, groovy, and effortlessly break up the tumult.

While Baroness STONE was writing, Baizley recorded and premixed the album. After the group finished recording the drums, guitars and bass, they took everything back to Baizley's basement - which is also where parts of Gold & Gray were recorded - to record the vocals and add other details. STONE was then turned over to Grammy-nominated mixmaster Joe Barresi (Kyuss, Alice In Chains) and Grammy-winning mastering guru Bob Ludwig (Led Zeppelin, Nirvana) at Gateway Mastering Studios for final mixing and polishing.
