Baroness – Purple

Re-invigoration is a theme that is often utilized when making, speaking or consuming music. Something about the creative energies released by music demands it. The duality is clear; music both regenerates us but also requires attention, energy and, most of all, self-searching and growth.

Thus, we come to Baroness. Being a veteran band, and with consideration of events other than the music, the biggest question that surrounded Purple was can they pull it off? Can a band so known and recognized for its distinct sound bring something new to the table?
