venues this Spring, kicking off a month-long, co-headlining tour with Against Me! on May 1 at Detroit's Majestic Theatre. Destroy Boys support on the first half of the tour, with Drug Church supporting on the second half.
John Baizley of Baroness had this to say, "It's extremely exciting to get back out on the road in the U.S., this time with our friends in Against Me! We love tours that offer this much variety of sound. While our styles or sound may differ, we share some background in common. Our two bands originate from the deeply Southern U.S., we're both products of the independent/DIY community and as we've grown, we've both worked tirelessly to maintain an ever-evolving independent and creative spirit.
"When we were a very young band, we looked up to and admired Against Me! In '04, or '05, I remember our vehicle breaking down in Gainesville, Fla. While we were struggling in vain to fix a road-worn vehicle, we ran into Against Me! (whom we did not know at the time).
"After hearing our troubles, and without a moment's hesitation, they helped an out-of-town band of strangers fix their vehicle and get back out on the road. From that day forward, I've had a profound respect for the band... we cannot wait to get on tour with them." See the dates below:
