Purson have opened pre-orders for their new LP and embarked upon a UK tour.
Desire’s Magic Theatre is due for release on the 29th of April via Spinefarm Records.
Singer, guitarist and song-writer Rosalie Cunningham says that the new collection of songs touches on a variety of realms, including folk, prog, psychedelic, gothic and classic rock, making telling use of classical instruments and complex arrangements, and fully exploring the outer limits of reel to reel tape.
“Desire’s Magic Theatre has turned out to be everything I’d imagined and more,” she says. “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.”
