Purity Ring at Pitchfork Festival – 7/13/12
Purity Ring

Possibly the most anticipated debut album of 2012 is Purity Ring‘s Shrines, which is due out July 24 via 4AD. You’ve already heard like half of the album already, and possibly even the whole thing if you grabbed one of the leaks (but you guys don’t do that, right?). Or maybe you heard them playing material off of it at their recent NYC show at Prospect Park with Dirty Projectors and Wye Oak or if you were in Chicago over the weekend for Pitchfork Festival where they headlined the Blue Stage on Friday (7/13). Now you can finally hear the album in full (a week ahead of its release) by streaming it on NPR. Spoiler alert: it’s really good.

If you’ve missed our coverage of Pitchfork Festival so far, we’ve got sets of day 1 pics HERE and HERE and day 2 pics HERE and HERE. More pictures of Purity Ring’s set, which included Megan James’ elevated bass drum and Corin Roddick’s light-up synths, are in this post.

Purity Ring’s tour continues and brings them back to NYC for a show on July 24 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show are still available. Updated dates and more pics from Pitchfork are below…
