Savannah, Georgia's Baroness are back with their second full-length CD, Blue Album, which is due out on October 13th (Relapse Records). This new disc follows 2007's Red Album, which was picked by Revolver Magazine as "Album of the Year".

Relapse is taking pre-orders for the CD version of Blue Album and there is a limited edition 2-disc pressing that includes a live disc from 2009's Roadburn Festival. (A vinyl version is due out shortly). For anyone who wants an early listen, three tracks from Blue Album ("A Horse Called Golgotha", "Bullhead's Psalm" and "The Sweetest Curse") are currently streaming on the Baroness' MySpace page.
