Purity Ring : New Purity Ring Album 'WOMB' Out 3rd April, Hear 'stardew' Now
18th February 2020

After more than five years, Purity Ring have returned to announce their third album.  WOMB will be released on 3rd April via 4AD and is entirely produced and recorded by the duo of Megan James and Corin Roddick.

WOMB chronicles a quest for comfort and the search for a resting place in a world where so much is beyond our control.  Lead single 'stardew', released today, is a glittering, transcendent invitation to “just be where you are” - to experience the kind of powerful peace that can only be found by truly coming home.

Released today, you can stream new single 'stardew' here, or in the player below.

Today Purity Ring also announce an extensive North American tour including two nights at Brooklyn Steel in New York and The Palladium in Los Angeles.  European headline shows will follow in September, including London's Roundhouse.

WOMB will be available digitally, on CD, standard black vinyl, and limited exclusive coloured vinyl.
‚Äč+ Pre-order WOMB here from the 4AD Store here.  The first 1000 orders from the 4AD Store on limited vinyl will recieve an exclusive 12"x12" insert signed by the band +
+ Pre-order and pre-save on all platforms here +

WOMB follows Purity Ring’s 2012 internationally-acclaimed and highly influential debut Shrines and 2015’s another eternity.  On another eternity, The New York Times praised the songs as “only a few steps removed from radio hits by singers like Ariana Grande and Ellie Goulding” while Rolling Stone called them “lustrous synth pop plus cavernous hip hop” and The New Yorker lauded the duo for “creat[ing] electro-pop that is as warm and human as it is cold and alien, an intoxicating combination that feels boldly futuristic.”  In support of the album, the band performed on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Conan and the outdoor stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live!
