Purity Ring Ticket Giveaway
Following a unique tour pattern across the globe, future pop duo Purity Ring returns to the states to finish the U.S. leg of their tour schedule before jetting back to Europe.
Consisting of Megan James on vocals and Corin Roddick on instrumentals, the Canadian collab was formed in 2010. The duo was originally part of a band called Born Gold, who were on tour when Roddick started experimenting with beat making as well as electronic sound production. In 2011, Roddick asked James to sing on a track called “Ungirthed,” which was released shortly thereafter.
The track became wildly popular amongst fans and new listeners, leading the duo to sign with 4AD worldwide and Canada’s Last Gang Records in 2012. Later that month, they released their first official single and announced the July release date of their debut album, “Shrines.”
Last year, Purity Ring announced that they were working on their second studio album–the first one they’d record entirely in the studio, side by side. With singles such as “Push Pull,” “Begin Again” and “Repetition” already gaining international attention, the duo did a formal reveal of the album name, “Another Eternity,” in 2015, as well as the track listing and album cover.
On February 26, “Another Eternity,” became fully available for online streaming via NPR Music’s First Listen, but was only released in the U.S. on March 3.
Montana’s HANA will be joining Purity Ring for their Pittsburgh performance at Stage AE on Thursday, September 24. Doors open at 7PM, and tickets can be purchased for $30. You can also enter our giveaway below for a chance to win two free ones:
