Purity Ring unveil new single from forthcoming album

NEW SINGLE FINESHRINE AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD AT EXCLAIM.CA

Purity Ring is excited to unleash the new single from their forthcoming debut album. Fineshrine is the second song on their highly anticipated album Shrines (Last Gang), which will be released on July 24th. Available as an exclusive download through Exclaim.ca, fans can get their first taste of the new single here.

Purity Ring is a Halifax/Montreal-based duo comprised of Corin Roddick and Megan James. They make lullabies for the club, drawing equally from airy 90s R&B, lush dream pop, and the powerful, bone-rattling immediacy of modern hip hop. Megan’s remarkable voice is at once both ecstatic and ethereal, soaring wistfully above Corin’s intricately chopped drum programming, trembling sub-bass, and skewed vocal samples.

Fineshrine is Purity Ring’s most anthemic song to date—quite a feat if you’ve been paying attention to the band’s output since their inception only a year and a half ago. James’ lyrics are at once grisly and tender—a blood-soaked love song that sits atop Roddick’s mammoth, ear-burrowing production.

U.S. tour dates are listed below, with the recent addition of FYF Fest in Los Angeles on September 1st.

“[Purity Ring] create a pointillist synth wonderland, stretch and mangle Megan James’ clear pure voice, and rig samplers and lights together in a way that’s visually bewitching.”
