Published Feb 11, 2013Experimental Canuck beat-makers Purity Ring recently wrapped up some winter tour dates, but it won't be long before the trap-pop duo head back on the road to promote their debut LP Shrines with another string of North American dates.
While the band have a few shows lined up in Australia and the UK in March, their North American schedule starts up anew April 2 at Ottawa's Ritual Nightclub. The bulk of the dates find the pair partnered up with fellow Canadians Blue Hawaii. After a few weeks down in the U.S., including a high-profile performance at Coachella, Purity Ring will hit Canada up with shows in Vancouver, Calgary, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.
