Baroness Storm the Stage in ‘Try to Disappear’ Video
Baroness have spent the past several months touring behind last year's fantastic Purple LP. Their latest record may have been the technical focus of the just-concluded trek, but the sludge stalwarts were even more eager to flex their might in the wake of a horrific tour bus crash that nearly took their lives back in 2012.
Accordingly, the Savannah outfit's new visual for Purple standout "Try to Disappear" is a defiant middle finger to the Grim Reaper. In addition to showcasing Baroness' performative prowess (especially that of drummer Sebastian Thomson, who whales on his kit with a punishing, eerie calmness), both song and clip act double as vivid, fist-pump-invoking reminders to live in the moment and cherish every bit of good fortune that comes your way, be it an opportunity to watch a bunch of of metal masters let it rip, or the chance to cheat death itself. Watch below.
Purple is available now via the band's own label, Abraxan Hymns.
