Baroness ‘Chlorine & Wine’ Music Video

United States progressive metal band Baroness released a new music video for their song Chlorine & Wine, which is featured on their new forthcoming fourth studio album entitled Purple.  The record has been produced by prolific producer Dave Fridmann and will be released on December 18th via the bands own label Abraxan Hymns.

Baroness guitarist and vocalist John Baizley said about the new album – “After releasing a lengthy and investigative record like Yellow & Green we all felt that we needed to make something much more direct and immediate. 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.”

Purple is the first release from the band since the bus accident the band suffered while touring in England back in 2012, several of the band members were injured along with other passengers after the bus drove off a viaduct in poor weather.  Thankfully no-one was killed and everyone has now recovered from the incident, although drummer Allen Blickle and bass player Matt Maggioni both later left the band, being replaced by Sebastian Thomson and Nick Jost respectively.

1. Morningstar
2. Shock Me
3. Try to Disappear
4. Kerosene
5. Fugue
6. Chlorine & Wine

The band has also announced a run of tour dates to accompany the video. John Baizley comments –  “We’ve been off tour for too long. It’s time for Baroness to start playing shows in the U.S. again. We’re doing a short run through the eastern half of the States, in small clubs, getting our new songs stage ready for 2016. Who knows, maybe we’ll even throw in a few songs from the very early EPs and albums. See you soon”
