UK rockers Purson have signed a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records it has been announced.
The pairing will see Purson’s second album, Desire’s Magic Theatre, released in the autumn following a slew of high-profile shows including this year’s Download festival.
The band are currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to the new album, which will be released under the Spinefarm/Machine Elf Records banner.
Says Purson singer, guitarist and song-writer Rosalie Cunningham: “As I sit here in the control room at Gizzard Studios, the pride of East London, I’m excitedly realising that our second album has turned out to be everything I’d imagined and more!
“My world has been so consumed by it that I’ve barely been able to reflect on what it has become: a technicolour variety show, a playful display of the musical whims only briefly hinted at in our previous work; a psychedelic rock opera dedicated to our good friends Sarge Pepper and Zig Stardust.
“The twists in the tale have been carved out by the path we’ve taken over the last 12 months. It’s been constantly shape-shifting and developing with all the wonderful experiences we’ve had.
“On behalf of the band, I give thanks to everyone who has bought a Purson record and been to our shows. Your continued support means everything… and you have our promise that the best is yet to come…”
Says Spinefarm Records General Manager UK, Dante Bonutto: “I’ve been following Purson since the early days of their career, and I’ve always considered the band something special; I like their vision, their theatricality, and their refusal to be corralled by a single musical genre. Purson really do have an expansive approach to their craft, and as a song-writer, Rosalie is a unique talent on the rise. In all ways, their future is bright, and I’m delighted that Spinefarm & Purson have now forged this fresh alliance.”
