Baroness 'Purple' LP
Baroness return with their first new music in three years, as the band releases their fourth album, Purple, via their recently formed label, Abraxan Hymns. “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. In late July, Baroness shared news that the release would come via their own label, dubbed Abraxan Hymns. Baizley discusses the band’s move towards independence: “We have been incredibly fortunate to work with a series of amazing labels, producers, management, crew members, etc., all of whom we not only consider a critical part of our development as musicians and performers but also our personal friends. After working for so long as a recording and touring band, it seemed like a no-brainer when the opportunity arose to start our own label.” The album was produced by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT) at Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, New York.
