Official press release:
Baroness reveal the cover for the band’s fourth album, Purple (Dec. 18, Abraxan Hymns), via a time lapse video that shows John Baizley’s process for creating the album artwork. This clip follows fans piecing together quadrants of the album cover that were revealed via t-shirts shipped last week as part of the band’s deluxe album pre-order bundles.
Baizley has done the artwork for all of Baroness’ releases as well as fine art and album art for bands including Skeletonwitch, Black Tusk, Kvelertak, and Kylesa. A gallery can be seen at www.aperfectmonster.com.
