Following the success of their last release Purple, Savannah rockers Baroness decided to shoot the second video off the album. This time the chosen song was ''Shock Me''. The video was directed and filmed by Don Tyler and is now available for viewing below through the YouTube player. Purple has been out since December 2015.
At the moment, Baroness are touring in Europe to present their new album, Purple. It was brought to their attention that Rosie Solomon, a fan of the band who attended their show in Birmingham on February 29th, wrote about her awful experience at the show, where she was allegedly sexually assaulted. The band decided to share her story online and slam the fan who did this. Props to the band for condemning this and not sweeping it under the rug, and to Rosie Solomon for taking a stand.
Currently in the midst of a five-week European trek, Baroness will return to North America this spring, confirming their first national tour since the release of the band's critically acclaimed fourth album, Purple.
