Baroness Announce Tour Dates, Relief Auction Starts Today

543693_10150832929310056_1116789955_nWhen South Georgia rockers Baroness’ bus crashed in England late last year, the band was forced to postpone their 2012 tour.

The band has since recovered and have decided that it’s time to hit the road again for a summer tour that kicks off Aug. 5 in Columbus, OH. Joining them on the road will be Royal Thunder, of Atlanta.

Jason Lupeituu, Baroness’ front-of-the-house engineer (who was in the bus accident himself )  and webmaster Nath Cöre, took it upon themselves to set up an auction raising money to help the band and crew members cover their medical expenses. The auction will feature items donated to the cause, all the way from fan art to other bands’ musical equipment.

I'm a journalism student at UWF in my junior year currently living just outside of Pensacola, FL. I'm 27 years old. I like music. Lots of music. Live music. Headphone music. Car speaker music is real good. Food is also real good. Too good. I eat sushi with chopsticks because it makes me feel more legit.
