Purity Ring Return After 5 Years With ‘Stardew,’ Announce Third Album ‘Womb’ & Tour Dates

Purity Ring is back! On Tuesday (Feb. 18), the Canadian indie-pop duo unveiled "Stardew," the lead single of their upcoming third studio album, Womb.

The pulsating track finds the band in search of respite in the midst of ever-changing chaos. "The world turns over/ And I'll be lost in you/ Hide in the static/ Will push me through and through/ And I would fall from your sweet height to prove/ That all I am is meant to bleed and bloom," vocalist Megan James sings over sparkling synths and the twinkle of bells. 

The new LP — which was written, recorded and produced entirely by James and instrumentalist Corin Roddick — is set to be released April 3 via 4AD Records and marks the band's first album in five years, following 2015's Another Eternity.

In support of Womb, Purity Ring will also embark on a North American headlining tour this summer, which kicks off May 3 at Van Buren in Phoenix, Ariz. and wraps up June 11 at The Palladium in L.A. before hopping the pond for a round of European dates. The run will also include back-to-back nights at Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY as well as festival appearances at ACL Live, Ogden, Utah's Twilight Festival and Lightning in a Bottle Fest in Bakersfield, Calif.
