PURPLE to detonate new album BODACIOUS on April 1st‏

The gritty Texas trio Purple, whose music encompasses reggae, funk, pop, rock and hip hop seamlessly are back to detonate their sophomore album, Bodacious, on April 1, 2016 via Play It Again Sam.

Bodacious proudly retains the venomous, strident tone established on their debut release, (409), and takes a dive into high-adrenaline fueled pop rock with tracks “Pretty Mouth” and “Bliss”.

The Beaumont-based band teamed up with Nerdist to premiere the tongue in cheek new video for “Mini Van”http://nerdist.com/premiere-purples-mini-van-is-the-grungy-grease-revival-we-didnt-realize-we-needed/

Bodacious starts off like a gun shot with the volatile “Backbone”, leaping between the abrasive shouts of the refrain, and the funky, fluid pop melody of the verse. The album’s first single “Bliss” slides the record into an atmospheric resonance that builds into riotous hammering. Towards the conclusion of  Bodacious, Purple bust out their fuzz-rock chops on “Geniva” to deliver a grimy catchy melody over fat, distorted guitars, setting the album up for its high-octane finish.
