Baroness Offer Stream of Entire ‘Purple’ Album

Subscribe to Loudwire on

If you think like us, you can’t wait for Baroness to release their fourth full-length album Purple. The record comes out tomorrow (Dec. 18), but there’s no need to go Baroness-less for another day, as the band is streaming Purple in full right now!

Purple is Baroness’ first album since suffering through a devastating bus crash in 2012, which left three of four members with serious injuries. Frontman John Baizley is the only one of those three to remain with Baroness, but their core is stronger than ever with their Purple lineup.

“After releasing a lengthy and investigative record like Yellow & Green we all felt that we needed to make something much more direct and immediate,” says Baizley. “We wanted to write with our normal focus on artistry, balanced against an increased level of energy and focus. 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.”
