purity ring shrines 2012 tour dates

Purity Ring announced tour dates for 2012 in support of their upcoming debut release, Shrines. This will be Purity Ring’s first headlining tour, which is not bad considering to date they have only a handful of tracks to their name. The icing on the cake, seven of their performances in July will be accompanied by Dirty Projectors. After recently signing to 4AD, the duo shared the track list (see below) for the album and released the first single “Obedear,” a synth rich, hi-hitting track that further promises a notable release.

Tracklist:

Crawlersout
Fineshrine
Ungirthed
Amenamy
Grandloves
Cartographist
Belispeak
Saltkin
Obedear
Lofticries
Shuck
