As the mastermind of Baroness, frontman John Baizley isn’t just a good musician, he’s also a talented artist wit ha signature style. In addition to drawing all of his band’s album covers and designing more than a handful of T-shirts, he’s also done artwork for Kvelertak, Kylesa, Skeletonwitch and many more. With Purple coming out in December, today the band released a time-lapse video of the album cover being drawn. It’s pretty amazing to watch it turn from a rough outline of a sketch into the amazingly detailed and colorful artwork, and it’s also the first look we get at the album cover.
Purple will be out on December 18th on the band’s own Abraxan Hymns label. You can preorder it here.
