As mentioned, Purity Ring are heading out on tour with Neon Indian in September and October, culminating in a CMJ show at Webster Hall on October 21. Tickets are still available for what is now Neon Indian's next NY show now that the Quiksilver thing is cancelled (well, unless you count DJing).
Purity Ring will also play a Windish Agency CMJ Showcase that same night (10/21) at Mercury Lounge with Drop the Lime, Small Black, We Barbarians, High Highs, Gauntlet Hair, Electric Guest, and Cuckoo Chaos. Tickets for the showcase go on sale Thursday (9/1) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (8/31) at noon (you can also try to get in with a CMJ badge). All tour dates are listed below.
Purity Ring are set to release a split 7" with fellow Canadians Braids on October 11 via Fat Possum. Grab Purity Ring's contribution, "Belispeak," above and check out the artwork, which is above too.
Speaking of Braids and We Barbarians, Braids are going on tour with Pepper Rabbit, but before they do Pepper Rabbit will play their own show with We Barbarians and ANR at Mercury Lounge on August 31. Tickets are still available. Braids play Mercury Lounge a week later. Tickets are still on sale.
