Purity Ring - Watch The New Purity Ring Video for 'Fineshrine'
Purity Ring : Watch The New Purity Ring Video for 'Fineshrine'
11th July 2012

Purity Ring today reveal their video for recent single, 'Fineshrine'. Directed by Young Replicant, the video is presented by VEVO, Pitchfork and Dazed digital and can be viewed here or below.

'Fineshrine' is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming debut album Shrines, which will be released by 4AD on July 24th. Pitchfork recently awarded the song Best New Track and called it “Purity Ring’s finest track yet”. Young Replicant’s video is the perfect visual manifestation of the song's grisly grandeur, offering an epic and surreal widescreen take on singer Megan James’ chilling lyrics.

On July 24th, the US release date of Shrines, the band will be playing a very special, immersive in-the-round performance at Le Poisson Rouge in New York. An exclusive pre-sale has been announced via the band’s website.  Fans can purchase tickets with an exclusive screenprinted release show poster and a copy of Shrines on CD or LP. 

The band are currently nearing the end of a tour with Dirty Projectors, and will head out next month on an extensive North American tour.
