Two long-time Scene Point Blank favorites of different musical styles will team up for a co-headlining tour in May. Against Me! and Baroness will embark on a US tour beginning May 1 in Detroit, MI.


“It’s extremely exciting to get back out on the road in the U.S., this time with our friends in Against Me! We love tours that offer this much variety of sound. While our styles or sound may differ, we share some background in common. Our two bands originate from the deeply southern U.S., we’re both products of the independent/DIY community and as we’ve grown, we’ve both worked tirelessly to maintain an ever-evolving independent and creative spirit,” Baroness founder John Baizley says. “When we were a very young band, we looked up to and admired Against Me! In ’04, or ’05, I remember our vehicle breaking down in Gainesville, FL. While we were struggling in vain to fix a road-worn vehicle, we ran into Against Me! (whom we did not know at the time). After hearing our troubles, and without a moment’s hesitation, they helped an out-of-town band of strangers fix their vehicle and get back out on the road. From that day forward, I’ve had a profound respect for the band… we cannot wait to get on tour with them."


Against Me! will also be on the road in March-April, prior to the Baroness dates. The band is currently working on a follow-up to Shape Shift With Me (2016). Baroness is touring is support of Gold & Grey, released last year.

April 18, 2020 Update:

Against Me's statement:

I hope that it's apparent that this is absolutely not at all what any of us want, and if we had any real choice in the matter we would for sure be out on the road this May. But given the current worldwide situation, we have no other choice but to cancel this amazing tour that we have all been looking forward to since its conception. My definite hope is that this tour does still happen at some point in the future when able. Until then, everyone please stay safe, sane and healthy!
