Our new album Purple comes out on Friday but starting today, we’d like to share the entire album with the world. We’re going to continue playing hide and seek, unless you are in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, in which case you can hear the album at Spiegel.de HERE.
If you are anywhere else in the world, we’re premiering every song on different websites throughout the day. To find the songs, search for #FindPurple on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. If you find one, share it!
The artwork in each of these videos was done by the incredibly talented Marald van Haasteren (more on him and his work to follow). You’ll also start to recognize his art when you receive your physical copies of Purple.
On that note, here is “Shock Me”.
Hear the Purple Tour Backstage Playlist on Spotify HERE. A little metal, a little punk, a lot of guitars.
Here’s “Shock Me” from our forthcoming album Purple (out December 18). Pre-order a digital version of Purple to receive an instant download of “Shock Me” and “Chlorine & Wine.”
