Will Baroness “Throw Me An Anchor” on Their Latest Single?


We’re now four singles deep into the campaign for Baroness’s new album Gold & Grey: “Borderlines,” “Seasons,” “Front Toward Enemy” and the latest, “Throw Me an Anchor,” out today, so it’s safe to say we’ve got a pretty decent picture of what the album as a whole is going to sound like.

And guys, I’m gonna be honest: I’m not feeling it. None of these songs have stuck with me at all the way material from the band’s entire past catalogue has. None have grabbed me on first listen, none have wedged themselves inside my brain after repeated attempts, and I have no urge to go back and listen yet again. Just… nothing. It pains me to say it because I absolutely adore Baroness, but yeah, there it is.

See if you disagree with me by clicking play on “Throw Me an Anchor” below. All of the band’s upcoming live dates are underneath the embed. Gold & Grey drops June 14 on the band’s own label, Abraxan Hymns, and can be pre-ordered here.
