BARONESS's NEW Kickass Album 'Yellow & Green' Is Available Right Now!

BARONESS, who recently graced covers of both Decibel and Hails & Horns Magazines, have earned near perfect reviews for the expansive set with Spin describing the release as "alternative rock's brawniest soul-purge" and adding that "beastly event-records like this only come once in a full moon." Alternative Press awarded 'Yellow & Green' four stars, NPR said the album offers "an embarrassment of melodic and riff-based riches," Metal Sucks said this is "Baroness' crossover masterpiece" and  the BBC said this is "a beautiful next step in the ongoing saga of Baroness."

'Yellow & Green' was recorded in late 2011 at studios in New Jersey and Dallas with the band reuniting with co-producer John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, St. Vincent, Xiu Xiu) for the 18-track collection. A series of behind-the-scenes clips chronicling the recording process have been released in the weeks leading up to today's release and can be viewed on the band's You Tube page.
