On December 18, Baroness will release new album Purple via their label, Abraxan Hymns. They’ve already shared one new track from the album, the slow-building and climactic “Chlorine & Wine.” Today, however, they’ve got yet another new track to share from their highly anticipated fourth album. It’s called “Shock Me,” and it’s a more direct, hard rocking standout from the album, which sounds likely to be the last truly excellent record of 2015. It’s already two-tenths of a great record, anyhow. Listen to the Baroness “Shock Me” stream below, courtesy of Stereogum.
Purple follows 2013′s Yellow and Green.
