Baroness Reveal The Title And Cover Art To Their Upcoming Album

bluealbum

I knew I wasn’t a retard! The album didn’t have a name when I first wrote about it and now it does. Now that I have you, I will reveal the title! Drumroll please!!!!!!!!

Blue Record.

How anticlimactic. Still, these guys have proved to me that an album title means nothing when the music is as good as it is. Listen to the Red Record for proof. The cover art was done by the band’s very own John Dyer Baizley. He’s very good at drawing pregnant villagers and catfish, as you can see. Blue Record is expected some time in October via Relapse Records. I can’t wait.
