Baroness debut new track “Shock Me”

A new song off Baroness’ forthcoming record Purple is now streaming online; listen to “Shock Me” above. Singer/guitarist John Baizley said of the new song:

“Along with the rest of Purple, ‘Shock Me’ represents the net result of an arduous reformation/rehabilitation process following the release of Yellow & Green and the bus accident that nearly ended us. We were unsure three years ago whether we’d be able to be at this point again; and while it hasn’t been a particularly easy road to get back, it is truly thrilling to feel that familiar anxious excitement that comes before we release a new album and to put new music out into the world. We treasure these moments of excitement, as they have taken on a deeper level of significance in recent years.”

Purple is scheduled for release on December 18th through Abraxan Hymns. Physical pre-orders are available at, while digital pre-orders can be picked up on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
