Purple, whose sound "hits you like a bolt of lightning shot out of a Jim Beam bottle with a thunderclap punk rock chaser" (Phoenix New Times) are back and hell bent on following-up their critically-acclaimed debut album (409). The Beaumont, Texas band that NPR's All Songs Considered promised to "follow to the end of the Earth" partnered with Nerdist to release the tongue in cheek new video for "Mini Van", the first glimpse of music from the band since they entered the studios to record their sophomore album.
"Mini Van" will appear on a limited edition 7-inch, available only through the band's pledge music page (www.pledgemusic.com/purple). Purple will offer other unique items and experiences, such as online drum lessons, signed drum sticks and drum heads, one-of-a-kind bikini tops made by front-woman/drummer Hanna Brewer, one-of-a-kind guitar pedals made by guitarist /vocalist Taylor Busby, and a house concert at a fan's home.
In November, Purple will return to the road, bringing their full-tilt and animated live show through the heart of the Midwest. Those dates can be found below.
