Canadian synthpop duo Purity Ring have released a new single in advance of an extensive fall and winter tour.

The duo's new single is called "soshy." It is a buoyant, banging pop tune with an undercurrent of horror movie darkness. That eeriness is emphasized by the video, which was directed by Carson Davis Brown using archival black-and-white footage.

As for the tour, it runs throughout the fall and winter and includes a pile of U.S. stops along with Canadian dates in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Toronto and Montreal. In early 2022, Purity Ring will tour in Europe and the UK.

Find both the "soshy" video and the tour schedule below. This is the band's first new material since 2020's WOMB LP. At the time, we interviewed the band about the making of that album.
