A year after Baroness survived a gruesome bus crash while on tour in England, fellow Georgian metallers Royal Thunder were bestowed with the honor of supporting Baroness for the band's first return to the road. Before Royal Thunder's set in New York City's Irving Plaza, we spoke with guitarist Josh Weaver for an exclusive video interview.

Along with Baroness' tour, Weaver discussed Royal Thunder's debut album, 'CVI,' the richness of metal coming out of America's South, his mom not allowing him to attend a Nirvana concert at 12 years old + much more.
