By Alex HudsonThis year has been a big one for Purity Ring, as the Canadian electronic pop duo have become one of the country's biggest breakthrough acts of 2012. The band are hoping to continue their hot streak into 2013, and they have just announced a batch of dates for the new year.
This latest North American run kicks off in Montreal on January 10. After that, the band will head south for a slew of shows in the eastern half of the U.S. before wrapping up with an additional Canadian date in Toronto on February 1. New York genre-mashers Young Magic will join them on the trip.
As for the remainder of 2012, the band will be touring in Europe with fellow Canuck electronic act Doldrums. See the full schedule below.
