On December 18, Baroness will release their fourth album, Purple, via their newly launched Abraxan Hymns label. Today, they’ve just unveiled the first video from the album, for first single “Chlorine & Wine.” The new album is expected to be more of a concise, hard-rocking set of songs than its predecessor, though this track has more of a classic rock feel about it. It’s cool though, and the new clip features some studio footage of the band recording. The band has also announced some East Coast tour dates in support of the album, which you can check out below.
Purple follows 2013’s Yellow and Green.
