April 24, 2013, LOS ANGELES – Purson, the London-based quintet Pitchfork recently described as “eerie” and “whimsical,” is currently streaming their debut album, The Circle and The Blue Door, via Spin (

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.

A video for “Leaning On A Bear” debuted last month and is viewable here: Directed by Chris Martin, Rosalie Cunningham said of the setting: “We found this great place in Brixton, South London called Café Cairo that looks as though it has been transplanted there from the souk in Marrakesh.”  The clip gives a perfect visual to the band’s trippy psychedelia, or as they call it “vaudeville carny psych.”

Pre-orders of The Circle and The Blue Door are available via Metal Blade at this  Purson will make their debut U.S. performances this fall with tour dates forthcoming.
