Baroness battles back from catastrophe

By Jason Roche

One year ago, Baroness was touring Europe in support of its critically acclaimed record Yellow & Green. The ambitious double album was generating a strong buzz for the Georgia-based band. The momentum came to a screeching halt, though, on a rainy morning in August, 2012, when the band's tour bus plunged thirty feet off a viaduct. The accident, which occurred in Bath, England, injured nine people. Three members of Baroness were in the hospital for more than two weeks.
