Baroness Live at Rough Trade Records + Art Exhibition

6/14/2019, Rough Trade Records, Ghostcult Magazine, Brooklyn.

Ghost Cult was lucky enough to be among the select few to witness one of Baroness’s special record release gigs. The band released their stellar new album Gold & Grey via their own Abraxan Hymns imprint and wanted to celebrate with their fans.
