Purity Ring - Purity Ring And Jon Hopkins Combine Forces For Very Limited Split 12"
Purity Ring : Purity Ring And Jon Hopkins Combine Forces For Very Limited Split 12"
8th August 2013

Having recently announced a return to Los Angeles to play two special shows with special guest and long-standing friend Jon Hopkins later this month (Henry Fonda Theatre on August 27 and 28), we're excited to announce that at each performance, the two artists will give away 175 copies of a very limited edition 12” vinyl single.

The record will contain the previously aired Jon Hopkins remix of Purity Ring’s song 'Amenamy' (taken from their debut album, Shrines, and streaming below) and a new version of Jon Hopkins’ 'Breathe This Air' that features Megan on vocals and was premiered last night by Huw Stephens standing in for Zane Lowe on his BBC Radio 1 show.

The 12”s will be distributed at the show on a first-come-first-serve basis.

You can hear both tracks below...

Purity Ring were recently nominated for the Polaris Prize, which honors, celebrates and rewards creativity and diversity in Canadian recorded music. The winner will be announced next month and to see the full shortlist, please click here.

The albums Shrines by Purity Ring and Immunity, Jon Hopkins' fourth solo album, are both out now.
