Baroness Release Making Of Purple Album Video
"To do something new or interesting with this type of music is very, very difficult," says singer and guitarist John Baizley. "You gotta have two guitars. You gotta have a bass player and a drummer. That's how you define rock music. So by default, yes, we're a rock band. But here's the thing: we've never really felt the necessity to be pigeonholed, and we've never really felt any inclination to be part of anything other than our own thing."
"It's still rock. But with a question mark behind it," he adds. "What we're trying to do is write a stunning, beautiful, powerful, emotional, artistic creative rock record."
