Sheffield four piece PUREST announce new single on the 25 Hour Convenience Store label


Sheffield four-piece PUREST have announced that they will release a new single on the 25 Hour Convenience Store label on the 21st of February 2020.

‘Give Up’, the follow up to last year’s ‘Forever’ single, was recorded with Andy Saviours (Sigur Ros, The Killers & My Bloody Valentine) and will be available digitally at all the major outlets. An Infectious, swirling pop noise that takes influence from the likes of The Horrors, Jesus and The Mary Chain and Echo and The Bunnymen, the new track is accompanied by a video directed by Morgan Sidle.

Formed just over two years ago, the PUREST line up of James Rolling (guitar/vocals), Danny Davidson, (bass), Richard Bithrey (guitar) and Ashley Platts (drums) and in their early days picked up a steadily growing fan base in their hometown of Sheffield on the back of their raucous live shows. Dates in London soon followed and they came to the attention of several labels including The Libertines drummer Gary Powell’s 25 Hour Convenience Store imprint who released the band’s debut single ‘Waiting For’.

The track was critically acclaimed on its release by the likes of Clash Magazine, Gigslutz, Dork, Fred Perry and Gigwise and saw them pick up radio play on BBC Radio 1, Amazing Radio, BBC Sheffield Introducing and John Kennedy’s show on Radio X. Since then they have toured the UK and Europe extensively and most recently supported The Libertines on their dates in November 2019.

A truly innovative and exciting live band, PUREST are set to play a string of live dates over the coming months during which time they will also be in the studio putting the finishing touches to their forthcoming debut album which is expected to arrive in the Summer.
