Baroness’ “Shock Me” has been nominated for the Best Metal Performance Grammy at the upcoming 2017 event in February. In response, John Baizley commented:
What a surreal morning it has been. I was wakened at 5 a.m. by a massive influx of messages and e-mails, after 2 days without sleep, on tour in New Zealand and Australia to find out ‘Shock Me’ has been nominated for a Grammy. I’m astounded that this happened, and psyched to see that our friends in Gojira are present on the list as well. It’s been an overwhelming year, touring this record, and I’m extremely proud of my friends/bandmates and the whole Baroness family for the dedication and sacrifice that it took to write, record, and release Purple. Thank you, whoever you are that considered us for the nomination.
Baroness is joined by Gojira for “Silvera,” Korn for “Rotting in Vain,” Megadeth for “Dystopia,” and Periphery for “The Price Is Wrong.”
Who are you rooting for?
The Grammys will air on Sunday, February 12, 2017.
