After the band's third album, Yellow & Green, I was curious to see what direction Baroness would go with their fourth record.

The quartet have pushed themselves to explore new territory throughout their existence and if "Chlorine & Wine" is a good indication of what's to come, the new record, Purple, will be the next logical step for a band that has certainly mellowed over the years.

Look for Purple when it arrives December 18 on Abraxan Hymns.
