Purity Ring - New Tracks 'peacefall' and 'pink lightning' Out Today
Purity Ring : New Tracks 'peacefall' and 'pink lightning' Out Today
18th March 2020

Purity Ring have revealed two more songs from their forthcoming third album, WOMB, which will be released on 3rd April via 4AD.

Searching salve 'peacefall' is accompanied by a video featuring Megan chain-stitching the lyrics of the song and a crescendo of flames.  'pink lightning' begins with a haunting, pitch-shifted transmission before ascending to scintillation.  The video for the track is a walkthrough of a  'pink lightning' video game, which they leaked to fans in advance of the official release.  The pair of songs follow recent single 'stardew,', which was praised as “a crystalline rush of adrenaline” by The FADER. 

WOMB is Purity Ring’s first album in more than five years.  The ten songs are entirely written, recorded, produced and mixed by the duo of Megan James and Corin Roddick, and the album chronicles a quest for comfort and the search for a resting place in a world where so much is beyond our control.

WOMB will be available digitally, on CD, standard black vinyl, and limited exclusive coloured vinyl.
