Parisian heavy progressive BARON CRÂNE’s fourth studio album ‘Les Beaux Jours’ is arriving on October 15th through Mrs Red Sound. Progressive, jazzy, fusion and heavy rock infused, BARON CRÂNE’s new album ‘Les Beaux Jours’ and its daring associations is highly surprising. Bold, smart, mastered… This record showcases the band’s most relevant skills, and some excellent guests choices. First single off “Larry’s Journey” boasts a contagious groove, somewhere between dub, jazz and progressive rock. You can feel the influence of Faith No More or Primus.
‘Les Beaux Jours’ pays tribute to the French jazz scene by inviting saxophonist Guillaume Perret on “Mercury” and flutist Robby Marshall on “Merinos”. The heavy rock sounding is provided by Simon Lemmonier – from stoner band Patrón – who plays additional drums on “Danjouer”, as well as Cyril Bodin whose intense singing sublimates “Quarantine”.
Recorded and mixed by Guillaume Roess at La Capsule, Paris and Le Plan, Ris-Orangis (France). Mastering Camille Gateau, DK Mastering. Artwork Nora Simon.
