The clip features BARONESS guitarist/vocalist John Baizley discussing the moment he got off the road from promoting "Yellow & Green" and the inspiration for the new songs.
"Purple" will be released on December 18 via Abraxan Hymns.
Pre-order packages for "Purple", which feature an instant download of "Chlorine & Wine" as well as a limited-edition colored vinyl version of the new album, two picture discs, t-shirts and other unique items, are available now. Digital pre-orders, which also include an instant download of "Chlorine & Wine", are available via iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
"We've been off tour for too long," said Baizley. "It's time for BARONESS to start playing shows in the U.S. again. We're doing a short run through the eastern half of the States, in small clubs, getting our new songs stage ready for 2016. Who knows, maybe we'll even throw in a few songs from the very early EPs and albums. See you soon…"
BARONESS's music video for the song "Chlorine & Wine" can be seen below. The clip, which was directed by Jimmy Hubbard, gives fans a raw, behind-the-scenes peek into the making of the song, including footage of BARONESS writing and rehearsing the track as well as recording at producer Dave Fridmann's Tarbox Road Studios.
A European outing kicked off the band's live dates in support of "Purple", with slots at both the Reading and Leeds festivals, saw the first live performance of "Chlorine & Wine". BARONESS also joined METALLICA for the September 16 opening at the Centre Videotron in Quebec.
