Baroness Line-Up Changes

http://baronessmusic.com/update-3/

Sucks to see this happen especially given the circumstances, but it's good they're getting back on the road playing Chaos in Tejas and Bonnaroo.

"Nothing can truly prepare you for a brush with death. The event is unique one, singular to the observer. Trust me, you don’t want to invite the experience. Our bus accident left indelible marks, external and internal, physical and mental, you name it. Each of the nine of us went through and continues to go through an entirely different, yet common experience. We are tied to each other by a trauma, which, despite its damage, has been made individually easier through our shared ordeal. While I would never wish the incident on anyone, I cannot imagine going through that wreck alone.

Thankfully, injury was not dealt out evenly; unfortunately it was dealt in great supply. Each of the nine of us now finds our self in a drastically different circumstance, and we each move forward accordingly. There are two important things to note. First, we are all healthy. We are recovering at different rates, and we’ll all be fine in the end. Second, Baroness has made a commitment to pick up where we left off, and get back out on tour, where we belong. In fact, I am personally staking my recovery on this principle; it gives me direction and something to look forward to (finally).

However, for some of us, the accident necessitated a change that would prevent them from performing music or touring. It is with sadness that we must announce that Matt Maggioni and Allen Blickle will not continue touring with Baroness. The details of their departure are not sensational; they do not come with hard feelings. Nor are the details going to be public; suffice it to say we’d like to keep to ourselves the finer points of this situation, to respect the privacy of all involved. While the nine of us must respect the significance of the bus accident in Bath, we must also move away from it and get back to our lives. Simply put, some of the effects and injuries were severe enough to prohibit further activity in Baroness. While we would never have asked them to leave; we have the utmost sympathy for this situation, and in earnest, we wish Matt and Allen the best in the future. In their stead, we have found two musicians who can approach our music with passion and vitality and help get us back out on tour to finish what was seemingly cut short last August.


‘til the wheels fall off,

John Baizley & Baroness"

Matt's not a big loss since he didn't do anything on Y&G. He was essentially a fill-in. But Allen?








WTF, no.

Dude, Allen ended up injuring his back from the accident. Considering he's the drummer, he probably ended up the most fucked out of all of them. Poor guy may never play a full set ever again.

Yes, I'm well aware of that. But going from John's (vague) statement, it seems he could drum again one day. It sucks that they all got hurt, I don't blame any of them for quitting. But Allen & John were the core of the band. Allen's drumming is vital to the sound. It sucks for everybody, the band and the fans.

Playing Baltimore the same night of MDF may hurt sales a little.

I can't even imagine who they would replace Allen with. His drumming on First is some of my favorite ever.
