The album features previously released songs: searching salve 'peacefall', which FADER called “a glistening transmission from inside the eye of the storm”; 'stardew', which Billboard praised as “pulsating”; kinetic 'pink lightning' called “sparkling” by Stereogum; and the propulsive 'i like the devil', which BrooklynVegan note as “throbbing [and] atmospheric”.

To celebrate the album’s release, the duo of Megan James and Corin Roddick will do an AMA on the /r/popheads Reddit forum today at 4pm EST.

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, 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 Tracklist:
1. rubyinsides
2. pink lightning
3. peacefall
4. i like the devil
5. femia
6. sinew
7. vehemence
8. silkspun
9. almanac
10. stardew

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Purity Ring will postpone their May-June North American tour dates until fall 2020. The new dates will be announced soon. All tickets will be honored and refunds will be available at point of purchase. European and UK shows are still as scheduled.
