Baroness ‘Morningstar’ New Song Streaming

Morningstar is the new song streaming by US  progressive metal maestro’s Baroness.  The song is to be featured on the soon to be released fourth Baroness studio album titled Purple.

Purple was produced by prolific producer Dave Fridmann, and will be released on December 18th via the bands own label Abraxan Hymns.  Pre-orders in various bundles and limited editions are live now on Pledge Music, or iTunes for digital.

Follow the band on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates from them.

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.”
