Purity Ring have announced their new Graves EP out June 3rd. It’s the first official release via the band’s own label The Fellowship. They have also dropped the EP’s title track, which was premiered in a one at a time listening party earlier this week, where fans were placed in a virtual waiting room before they could stream the song in full.
Vocalist and songwriter Megan James tells us “This song has been haunting us for 8 straight years so we’re very glad to let it be heard. We hope it brings you as much joy as it has now brought us. Thank you for listening and please enjoy the beautiful music video about human cells.”
“Graves” comes off the back of “soshy” another new song they released last year, both songs showing why Purity Ring continue to be one of the most interesting and dynamic electronic duos of their generation.
Purity Ring are also preparing on a massive North American tour starting at the end of May. It will be the first major tour for the duo in 5 years and is a welcome return for fans.
Twelve years and a trilogy of albums later, Purity Ring return with their first extended play. It is a spirited collection of songs signifying an evolution to a nü era for the Edmonton duo.
