CriticalMass.se reporter Bella Qvist conducted an interview with John Baizley (rhythm guitar, lead vocals) of the Savannah, Georgia-based quartet BARONESS on August 13 at The Corporation in Sheffield, England. You can now watch the chat in two parts below.
BARONESS was involved in a road accident on August 15 in England when the band’s tour bus reportedly plummeted for 30 feet over a viaduct after going through a security barrier during heavy rain. Nine people, including the four members of the group, were sent to the hospital, two of them with serious injuries. The cause of the incident is currently under investigation.
All previously scheduled BARONESS shows have been postponed until further notice.
Baizley broke his left arm and left leg. Allen Blickle (drums) and Matt Maggioni (bass) each suffered fractured vertebrae. Pete Adams (lead guitar, vocals) was treated and released from the hospital.
BARONESS released its new album, “Yellow Green”, last month via Relapse Records.
