Edmonton electro-pop duo Purity Ring have expanded their upcoming tour schedule behind their debut LP, Shrines, due out July 24th via 4AD. Following a leg of July tour dates with Dirty Projectors — and an appearance at CoS’ official Forecastle Festival pre-party — the band will embark on their very own headlining tour beginning August 24th. Check out the full docket below.

Along with the tour dates, Purity Ring have announced the release of their next single. “Belispeak” will be released on limited-edition 12″ vinyl on May 29th, and contains instrumental and a cappella versions of the track as its B-Sides. Pre-orders are now ongoing via 4AD’s webstore.
