The 11-song album is set for an April 30 release via Metal Blade/Rise Above Records and has been dubbed “best debut of 2013” by Decibel Magazine with overseas outlets like Kerrang (“the best bits of ’60s and ’70s rock – think Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Cream… brought to 2013 in a sweet-smelling musical haze”), BBC (“a modern demonic sound”), Terrorizer (“their brand of gothic psychedelia is set to take 2013 by storm”) and Subterranea/Metal Hammer (“Purson are the UK’s new ambassadors for the otherworldly”) all championing the young UK outfit.
The video for Leaning On A Bear – directed by Chris Martin – debuted last month and is viewable here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c90mXA_Jrc4. The clip gives a perfect visual to the band’s trippy psychedelia, or as they call it “vaudeville carny psych.”
Rosalie said of the setting:
“We found this great place in Brixton, South London called Café Cairo that look as though it has been transplanted there from the souk in Marrakesh.”
Pre-orders of The Circle and The Blue Door are available via Metal Blade at this link: www.metalblade.com/purson. Purson will make their debut U.S. performances this fall with tour dates forthcoming.
