Purity Ring Expand North American Tour, Prep New Single

Purity Ring Expand North American Tour, Prep New Single
Fast-rising Edmonton space pop practitioners Purity Ring previously announced that they would be making the most of their recent success by releasing an album and hitting the road this summer. Now they've fleshed out their plans with a new single, plus some headlining shows of their own.

In the coming weeks, the electro duo will play some international shows and embark on a previously announced run of dates with Dirty Projectors. After that, they will continue to make their way around our continent on their own headlining tour. This latest leg includes a number of shows in Western Canada, along with plenty of U.S. gigs. See the schedule below.

While we wait for Shrines to arrive July 24 via 4AD/Last Gang, the band will lead up to the full-length by dropping the single "Belispeak" on May 29. This vinyl-only twelve-inch comes backed with instrumental and a cappella versions of the song.

You can currently order a copy from the 4AD online store, and scroll past the dates to listen to the song.
