Philadelphia alt-metal band Baroness distinguished themselves last year with the breakthrough Yellow & Green, the band's most broadly ambitous and best album to date. The U.S. tour meant to get underway last fall didn't, due to a near fatal bus accident last August outside Bath, England.

Read all about the band, and that nearly tragic day, in my interview with them from Thursday's Inquirer. That's here. Check out the quartet playing "The Line Between" in the video shot by David Swanson in the quartet's North Wales rehearsal space this week.

Tonight, Baroness kick off their long delayed Yellow & Green U.S. tour at Union Transfer. Show details here

Tired Hands Brewing Company in Ardmore, who like their metal along with their beer, will be bringing along one keg of their specially brewed Yellow & Green pilsner to Union Transfer in the band's honor. Drink it while it lasts.
