Baroness: Purple

Album Review

The cult US band emerge from the wreckage of a near-fatal bus crash stronger than ever.

There’s enough trauma in the world right now that even the tiniest crack of light is something to cling to. For Baroness, that crack of light comes in the shape of their fourth album, Purple. In August 2012, a horrific bus crash almost wiped the US band out, leaving singer/guitarist John Baizley hospitalised and in danger of losing his arm. Purple is the product of both personal trauma and Baizley’s long and painful physical rehabilitation.
