Baroness have confirmed that they will be touring Europe to support their latest record Purple – with six UK dates planned.
The band will play Southampton Engine Rooms on February 24 before wrapping up in Vega Small, Copenhagen, on March 31.
Baroness were en-route from Bristol to play Southampton in August 2012 when their bus crashed, leaving nine people severely injured and three members hospitalised for two weeks.
Vocalist John Baizley says that Purple, the successor to 2012’s Yellow & Green, reflects on the tragic incident.
“The band suffered a gigantic bruise. It was an injury that prevented us from operating in a normal way for quite some time. Hopefully, this record is the springboard that helps us get away from all that.”
Baroness are streaming the record in anticipation of its release tomorrow (December 18). The record can be pre-ordered via iTunes.
Tickets for the Baroness tour go on sale tomorrow at 9am on their website.
