BARONESS returns with its first new music in three years, as the band releases their fourth album, "Purple", on December 18 via its recently formed label, Abraxan Hymns. The first song from the ten-track album, "Chlorine & Wine", is available now, with an animated clip featuring "Chlorine & Wine" artwork. "After releasing a lengthy and investigative record like 'Yellow & Green', we all felt that we needed to make something much more direct and immediate," explains band founder and singer John Baizley of the approach behind "Purple". The album was produced by Dave Fridmann (THE FLAMING LIPS, MGMT) at Tarbox Road Studios in the secluded town of Cassadaga, New York. "We wanted to write with our normal focus on artistry, balanced against an increased level of energy and focus," Baizley says. "It was important for us to write our new songs with the type of enthusiasm and expressiveness that could act as a counterpoint to the album's dark themes. As a result, the music came out in an intense, heavy and sonically captivating in a new way, which was important, loathe, as we are to fall into any kind of complacency pitfall or formulaic songwriting routine. 'Purple' is the most fully realized representation of our intention as a band; considering the amount of physical and mental energy spent writing it, we have accomplished something which would have seemed impossible to us a couple of years ago."
