SHOW CANCELLED:

PURITY RING at Knitting Factory has been CANCELLED. All tickets will be automatically refunded. 

A message from Purity Ring:
hey everyone, 
 
out of concern for the safety of our crew, our fans, ourselves and all our loved ones, we must postpone these tour dates once again. simply put, the pandemic is not yet over. we've rescheduled our fall tour dates for summer 2022. your tickets will be automatically refunded. we're not responsible for ticket sales so you must go to the place you bought them from to handle any changes. 
 
we apologize for the inconvenience and sadness this may bring. we understand how it feels — we’ve spent months working on a new live show that we’re really proud of and excited to share. nearly all our shows are indoors, and when we announced these dates last spring we imagined them being a celebration. the past two months have shown that what we hoped for is just not yet possible. it’s sad and hard and we wish we didn’t have to make this decision. we wish there was more assistance for people in our position where tour is their primary means of income. the decision of whether or not to play a show during a pandemic currently falls on the artist’s shoulders alone when it should be the responsibility of public health officials, national and local leaders, and the music industry at large to ensure the safety of artists, crew, concert goers and our families. having watched loved ones hurt, hospitalized and killed by this virus, we feel it would be insensitive and reckless to carry on with tour as if the pandemic isn’t happening. out of love and respect for those who have died, come too close, or who have to suffer the consequences of long covid, we regretfully must push our dates. 
 
please know that we so much look forward to seeing all of you and it’s been a difficult couple of years waiting for these shows to happen. in the meantime we are going to make some sounds and when the time comes that we can get on the road, we’ll have some exciting things to show you. whatever you do, please stay safe and remember to take care of each other.

    After more than five years, Purity Ring have returned to announce their third album. WOMB will be released on April 3rd via 4AD and is entirely produced and recorded by the duo of Megan James and Corin Roddick.WOMB chronicles a quest for comfort and the search for a resting place. Lead single ‘stardew’, released today, is a glittering, transcendent invitation to “just be where you are” – to experience the kind of powerful peace that can only be found by truly coming home.

    Dawn Richard’s Second Line: An Electro Revival arrives worldwide April 30, 2021, on Merge Records. Much like the New Orleans-born artist who created it, Second Line is an unapologetic genre bender that pushes boundaries, expands possibilities, and shatters expectations. It’s more than just an album: Second Line is a cohesive sensory experience that questions traditional ideas of sound, production, and visual aesthetics as they relate to music. Its interlocking parts tell an epic story about the quest for artistic expression, with Dawn describing her project as “a movement to bring pioneering Black women in electronic music to the forefront.”

    She elaborates further: “You never see women appreciated as producers and artists alike—especially Black women in the electronic space. The time is now for us to start recognizing their talent, not only in electronic music but in all genres. I wanna be the reason why a young Black girl from the South can be whoever she wants to be musically, visually, and artistically.” Second Line cuts to the chase with its opening suite of dancefloor bangers, immediately displaying Dawn’s mastery of layered production and melodic hooks. On the hypnotic “Nostalgia,” her pleas of “Do you love me anymore?” are answered on the following track “Boomerang.” “Bussifame” builds slowly and assuredly to become a feverish boogie before melting into the complex rhythms of “Pressure.” Second Line treats Louisiana Creole culture, New Orleans bounce, and Southern Swag as elemental, allowing Dawn to weave in and out of house, footwork, R&B, and more. As she says, “I am the genre.”

    The story of Second Line centers on Dawn’s persona King Creole, assassin of stereotypes, a Black girl from the South at a crossroads in her artistic career. To move forward, she decides to look back, but where previous album New Breed took influence from her father, Second Line is illuminated by Dawn’s mother. Her proud
    repeated proclamation of “I’m a Creole Girl” introduces the ecstatic dancehall pop of “Jacuzzi,” and later, on the cinematic album centerpiece “Mornin | Streetlights,” she answers Dawn’s question of how many times she has been in love. Intimate conversations like this between the two are interlaced throughout Second Line, giving credence to how the protagonist came to be, and direction to build a lane forward.

    It’s no surprise that King Creole’s story parallels Dawn Richard’s. As a founding member of Danity Kane, and later with Diddy’s Dirty Money, Dawn was able to explore the ins and outs of commercial pop music. As a solo artist, she opted to self-release her music. Over the span of five critically acclaimed full-length albums, Dawn has made the message clear that she will not bow down or bend to industry norms. All the while, she’s built her resume with enough extracurriculars to make your head spin: Cheerleader for the New Orleans Hornets? Check. Animator for Adult Swim? Check. Owner-operator of a vegan pop-up food truck? Check. Martial arts expert? Check!

    Why “revival”? Because Second Line embodies the heritage of soul music and the roots of New Orleans, all surrounded by the influences of electronic futurism. “The definition of a Second Line in New Orleans is a celebration of someone’s homecoming,” says Dawn. “In death and in life, we celebrate the impact of a person’s legacy through dance and music. I’m celebrating the death of old views in the industry. The death of boxes and limits. I’m celebrating the homecoming of the Future. The homecoming to the new wave of artists. The emergence of all the King Creoles to come. This is our revival.” Dawn Richard is bold, confident, purposeful, and a King throughout Second Line. Are you ready to dance? Are you ready for the revival? Are you ready for Dawn Richard?
