BARONESS: Video For New Song 'Chlorine & Wine'

BARONESS, who recently announced the release of its fourth album, "Purple" (due on December 18 via Abraxan Hymns), will launch its first U.S. tour in support of the ten-song album with a round of intimate performances beginning November 27 at the Ace Of Cups in Columbus, Ohio.

"We've been off tour for too long," said BARONESS guitarist/vocalist John 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…"

In conjunction with the tour announcement, the band has unveiled the official music video for "Chlorine & Wine". 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.
