  Purple was released on Dec. 18 via the band’s own Abraxan Hymns label. The Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev) produced album has been universally praised with Pitchfork saying Purple features “some of the biggest, strong songs Baroness has ever written,” Entertainment Weekly calling the album “their finest release yet,” Rolling Stone Australia dubbing it “the most dynamic, robust guitar album this year,” Mojo echoing those sentiments, saying “Baroness have delivered their masterpiece: an album grounding their cosmic heaviosity with earthbound, compelling drama,” and German magazine Visions declaring “the quasi-comeback Purple is their best album to date.”  Purple and the songs from the album also landed on a number of year-end best of lists with “Shock Me” (video: https://youtu.be/hS5osAdTnm0) coming in at #10 on Entertainment Weekly’s Top 40 Songs of 2015, Pitchfork awarding it #6 on their Best Metal Albums of 2015 round-up and Rolling Stone placing the release at #7 on their 20 Best Metal Albums of 2015.
