Purity Ring - 'begin again' Video Premieres, Perform On Kimmel Tonight
Purity Ring : 'begin again' Video Premieres, Perform On Kimmel Tonight
12th October 2015

After releasing another eternity earlier in 2015, Purity Ring have released the new video for 'begin again' via Apple Music, ahead of their performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight.

Today, the duo have shared the epic video for 'begin again', available exclusively on Apple Music.  You can watch the video here, or in the embedded player below.  The video, which was directed by award-winning filmmaker Young Replicant, is an eerie, ritualistic narrative exploring the song's themes of renewal and rebirth. It is gorgeously shot, ancient and unsettling, which compliments the cosmic lyricism of the song. 

Young Replicant described the inspiration behind the video: “The band and I wanted to tell a story that mixed science fiction with a period setting, something that fit in the Purity Ring universe. I wrote a narrative that combined 16th century nuns, genetic engineering, and Hieronymus Bosch -- a few of my favorite subjects. Megan and Corin are brave and open-minded artists and it was very humbling to have had so much freedom and support to make something like this with them.”

Additionally, Purity Ring will play to a sold-out Outdoor Stage crowd tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they'll perform 'bodyache' and the new single 'begin again'.

UPDATE 15th October:

Purity Ring have shared a new remix of 'begin again' by no wave pioneers HEALTH.  You can listen on their YouTube channel here, or in the player below.

They will kick off a 19-date European tour on 27th October, which includes a performance at the Roundhouse in London and will return to Los Angeles to headline the Shrine on 5th December. In the New Year, the band head to Asia and Australasia for Laneway Festival with performances in Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.  You can find the full run of dates and relevant ticket links below.
