Baroness Unveil Video for ‘March to the Sea’

Relapse Baroness have released a new video for their masterful and immersive track ‘March to the Sea.’ Based on footage from their 2012 tour with Meshuggah and Decapitated , ‘March to the Sea’ showcases the mighty Baroness at the hottest point of their career before their catastrophic bus crash only months later. Having experienced a unique year to say the least, Baroness released their self-professed masterwork, ‘Yellow & Green,’ last year, which was met with universal praise from critics. The band’s bus crash in England thankfully left none dead, but the members of Baroness sustained serious injuries after plummeting 30 feet off a roadside cliff. The harrowing experience was detailed to us in a three-part interview Loudwire conducted with frontman John Baizley. The band members continue to lick their wounds, but the Georgia rockers are preparing for a full-on return soon. “So here is another video for everyone out there!” shares guitarist Pete Adams.  “This was filmed while we were on tour with Meshuggah in the Spring of 2012.  Some of you may recognize the footage from several of those shows and the ‘Take My Bones Away’ video as well. We were excited to be back out as it had been since December of 2010 when we had our last tour before taking time off to write ‘Yellow & Green.’ You can see from the video we were happy to be back on the road.  We’re happy now to have this video to share with you all. Enjoy.” ‘March to the Sea’ gives Baroness fans an incredible desire to see the band onstage once again, but until that happens, enjoy the group’s new video for ‘March to the Sea,’ a track that made Loudwire’s list of the 10 Best Rock Songs of 2012.

Green Day, ‘¡Dos!’ – Album Review

Reprise Green Day  have got love on the brain, while their toes are firmly dipped in the influences of eras gone by on ‘ ¡Dos! , the second album of their new trilogy. The disc even has a old-school pacing, clocking in at just under 40 minutes, but taking 13 tracks to get there. The quick-hitting nature of the songs makes the album a more immediate listen that seems to fly by. ‘¡Dos!’ comes across as a more cohesive collection than its predecessor (‘¡Uno!’) both lyrically and musically. The first part of the album follows the story of a man pursuing the girl that seems out of reach and the eventual comedown that follows, while the latter portion allows for a few steps outside the lyrical storyline. Album opener ‘See You Tonight’ and closer ‘Amy’ perfectly bookend the album with a restrained Green Day dipping into what feels like ’60s era Everly Brothers territory. The disc digs in with the out and out pursuit of the young woman on ‘F— Time,’ a song that almost brings to mind teens dancing the twist and a Georgia Satellites guitar lick thrown in in for good measure while singer Billie Joe Armstrong begins the courting process. ‘Stop When the Red Lights Flash’ continues the process, with the boast, “ Out of sight, out of mind, just give me one more time, I’ll make you surrender. ” For those looking for radio singles, ‘Stop When the Red Lights Flash’ seems like an obvious choice. But the wheels begin to come off with ‘Ashley,’ a frenetic track about the young woman of the singer’s desires falling further out of reach both romantically and in his desired interest. Highlights on the album include Armstrong’s exhausted lament on ‘Lazy Bones,’ a track that stands out from the rest of the disc and could potentially be its biggest single. Another standout, ‘Makeout Party,’ provides a showcase for drummer Tre Cool, who gets to steer away from keeping the beat to offer drum fills with reckless abandon while bassist Mike Dirnt fuels the song’s breakdown midway through. Current single ‘ Stray Heart ‘ was an obvious choice for radio play as well, as the bouncy feel of the track reflects the sound of ’80s era The Jam or more recently Weezer’s poppy side. It’s straight-up ear candy that instantly connects and is the poppiest track of a very commercial sounding release. For those looking for the hard-edged snarl of some of Green Day’s mid-2000s music, this album is not likely the place for you, but ‘¡Dos!’ does work extremely well as an infectious pop record with touches of early rock influences. Green Day will put a bow on the trilogy with the release of ‘¡Tre!’ on Dec. 11.
