PURE X ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ANGEL
HEAR NEW SONG ‘STARLIGHT’ NOW
ALBUM RELEASED 5TH MAY ON FAT POSSUM; ARTWORK AND TRACKLISTING REVEALED
Austin band Pure X is pleased to announce their third LP Angel, due 5th May on Mississippi based label Fat Possum. Over the course of each full-length the band has tirelessly reinvented themselves, opting to stay true to their own sensibilities and create the music that they wanted to make. With this, their third album, and their first as a quartet, their previous creations have given way to a new found serenity, a calm which finds the band in its most potent, refined, and elemental form yet.
Pure X have crafted a beautifully genuine pop record whose influences span across genres and generations without reserve while simultaneously coming into their own in the process. Fans can here the first track from Angel, the gorgeous album opener ‘Starlight’, now.
Angel was recorded to tape in a concentrated burst over five days at Wied Hall- a massive, rustic, 100 year-old dance hall in rural central Texas. The band isolated themselves to living in the cavernous space during the Autumn of 2013 after a year full of touring and writing on the road, seeking a secluded setting to construct what would become their most focused work to date. Recorded mostly live with minimum overdub, the results show the group of Jesse Jenkins, Nate Grace, Austin Youngblood, and newly acquired full-time member Matty Tommy Davidson leaving themselves totally unguarded.
Pure X are set to tour North America in March and April, with UK and EU dates to be announced shortly.
