Noted Canadian Indie-Electronic duo Purity Ring have just announced plans for an extensive worldwide winter tour. The trek will begin in Reykjavik, Iceland on November 1st. The pair will then pretty much fully circle the globe before landing back on their native soil in February.

The tour is being undertaken in support of their debut full-length, Shrines, which is out now on 4AD records. Reviews have described the record as "Nightmare Pop" and "Electronic music for people who hate electronic music."

Corin Roddick, the beat making half of the duo, claims their unique sound was merely an accident.

"We didn’t conceive of it as a long term thing, or even a project, it was just something to do," he said in a recent interview. "We were really happy with it though, and the response was amazing, and then the next tracks came together and we thought, hell, why don’t we make an album out of this.”

Check out the tour dates and a video for the mind-meltingly great Obedear, We'd show you the video for the slightly superior video for Ungirthed, but it is ridiculously unsafe for work.

YouTube it yourself, pervert.
