Brann and Baroness guitarist/heart throb Pete Adams before the Baroness show in Atlanta last Wednesday. I didn’t attend this show after all (I was kind of more into drinking than socializing with rock dudes that night, so I skipped the show). However, riding in the car with Brann and Pete as they made use of the “Peter Meter” must have been a fucking blast! I am sad I missed out on that part! Oh well, there’s always a next time.
BARONESS RECIEVES FINANCIAL AND MORAL SUPPORT FROM NEW ORGANIZATION
Our duders in Baroness are steadily recovering from the awful bus crash they were involved in last July, but mounting medical expenses has really taken a toll on the band monetarily. To raise money for the band and their personal needs, the non-profit Baroness Relief was formed by members of the band’s inner circle (managers, promoters, etc.).
Some time in the near future, an auction will be held featuring items donated by many well-known bands in the metal community, such as Kylesa, Red Fang, Meshuggah, Napalm Death, and Mastodon - Brann donated the snare you see above. When a date is set for the auction, I will update this post.
To become a member of the Baroness Relief team and help out some of your favorite sludgy heroes, please click HERE. Thank you!
Just to remind people that Fuck Yeah Mastodon has sister fan sites! Give them a little bit of love :)

* = Sites officially recognized by the bands
It is also a deep regret of mine to say that FuckYeahBlackTusk, FuckYeahElectricWizard, and FuckYeahRedFang have been deleted or discontinued. Really have no idea why, and it’s a damn shame.
If you have a sludgy “fuck yeah” site, send us a link!

There was also a Fuck Yeah Red Fang, but it appears that the creator has abandoned it.
Got a Fuck Yeah site for another sludge, stoner, or doom band? Want to make one? Drop a note in our ask box with the name, and I’ll add you to the links section! If the ask box won’t work, just reblog this post with the URL for your site!

Sludge/Stoner/Doom Music Blogs:

Got a blog for a band or covering the scene at large that you want linked here? Hit up our ask box!
Also, Relapse Records contacted me a couple of weeks ago asking that I put out the word about starting a Fuck Yeah blog for Red Fang. They’re really trying to pump them up as the next big band on the underground, so if anyone would be kind enough to start a FuckYeahRedFang, do it! The team at Relapse would appreciate it!
You probably do, since fans of Mastodon usually like the other three bands mentioned. Just thought I’d throw this page out there you each of you again, since we’ve gained a ton of new followers in recent months. We are an interactive fan site dedicated to these awesome bands. Check us out here:
I run the group along with John Santos, the talented artist who did the cover art for Kylesa’s Spiral Shadow. We are the best in Facebook fansites for these bands. Go click “like” if you want to follow us!
Oh hell yeah, it excites everyone, but could it ever become a reality? Please CLICK HERE to leave your responses about whether or not a peitition should be made in regards to a “Little Four” tour. Your feedback will be much appreciated!
SLUDGE METAL CUPCAKES (A more High-Res photo can be found by clicking HERE)
Top Row: Mastodon, High on Fire, Baroness, The Sword, Bison B.C.
Bottom Row: Dark Castle, Black Tusk, Big Business, Sleep, Pelican
One good question though: WHY ARE THERE NO KYLESA OR MELVINS CUPCAKES? :(
Guess those will come a little later…
Now when someone asks “Hey baby, what’s your sign?” you can give them a cooler answer.
If you love one or more of these bands and have a Facebook account, join this new fan community! Start topics, leave comments, and interact with other fans. This will be fun!
