Purity Ring has debuted new single "Asido" to celebrate the five-year anniversary of Shrines, their breakout studio album. Their first release since 2015's another eternity, "Asido" has a lyric video accompanies the track, illustrated by Tallulah Fontaine and written and directed by Megan James, the vocal half of the electronic duo. Speaking about the song in a statement, James said: "I imagine a tractor digging graves, I imagine crying blood, and I imagine eggs being swept away in it." On YouTube, the band wrote: "In celebration of the 5 year anniversary of our debut album -shrines-- we offer a thought and a thank you for our beloved fans-- enjoy!!"

2017 is proving to be a busy year for Purity Ring, after the pair co-wrote and produced three songs on Katy Perry's Witness and played several music festivals. In late April they announced they would be taking a break from touring to record a third album. Listen to "Asido" below.
