    Purity Ring have announced their new EP, Graves, out June 3rd via the band’s own label The Fellowship. As a preview, the duo have shared the title track after it was premiered at a virtual listening party earlier this week.

    Not much else is available in the way of details, but vocalist and songwriter Megan James revealed in a statement that “graves” was nearly a decade in the making. “This song has been haunting us for eight straight years so we’re very glad to let it be heard,” she said. “We hope it brings you as much joy as it has now brought us. Thank you for listening and please enjoy the beautiful music video about human cells.”

    Featuring the catchy melodies for which Purity Ring has become known, “graves” builds toward a dark chorus contrasting with James’ sweet vocals. “We’ll wait for wind to die,” she sings. “And hang over the sky/ Saw fires from far away/ Oh take me, oh take me/ Our heads are all ablaze.”

    The new single arrives after last year’s “soshy,” with the EP following 2020’s WOMB, which in turn marked Purity Ring’s first album in five years.

    In support of the release, the group is heading out on their first major tour in half a decade. See the full itinerary below; tickets are available now via Ticketmaster.
