Baroness formed in Savannah, Georgia, United States in 2003. After initially releasing EPs, they released their first album "Red Album" in September 2007. The album "Blue Record" followed in October 2009 and then the album "Yellow and Green" was released in July 2012.
In August 2012, the band were involved in a serious tour bus crash while travelling from Bristol to Southampton as part of a UK tour. Everyone survived the crash but it led to some "time out" and over time some personnel changes.
In December 2015, Baroness will release their fourth album "Purple" on their own label Abraxan Hymns. The first single "Chlorine & Wine" was released on 28th August 2015, and the video can be seen below. Below this you can see "Ultraviolet" where lead singer John Baizley talks frankly about life after the bus crash and the making of "Purple".
