Baroness interview with Seb Thomson on the eve of their Australian Download 2020 performance.

“Fifteen years after releasing their first EP, Grammy-nominated exploratory rock band Baroness spill triumphantly past genre barriers, their anthemic alt-metal hooks ricocheting between the circuitous twists of prog and jazz, the moody swirls of space-rock and noise, and the hypnotic pulses of trip-hop and 20th Century minimalism.”

This colorful excerpt from their bio really sets the stage for killer performances at Download Australia 2020 plus an amazing sideshow supporting Deftones in Brisbane. 

Five albums; Red Album (2007), Blue Record (2009), Yellow & Green (2012), Purple (2015) and Gold & Grey (2019) all absolute quality and all offering different elements for your ears and soul. If you even remotely dig brilliance in the landscape of sludge, doom, prog, alternative or straight-up metal, you need to go deep on this band. The song structures are well crafted and each album is clever and exceptional in its adventurous purpose. 

We had a great chance to chat with their articulate and very cool drummer Seb Thomson. He discussed how the band functions as a solid unit, some of the broad influences that make Baroness so great, the intensity of their blistering live shows and how it’s his 15th time to our fair shores. 

It was a fun and inspiring chat and if you haven't seen this band yet, Download 2020 is the perfect opportunity to have your senses tantalized. Have a listen and don't miss their performances next month.

Here are the details for their upcoming shows, don't miss the opportunity to see mind-blowingly heavy and diverse bands at Download Australia 2020.
