Pure Ground releases LP on Chondritic Sound, announces European tour

Pure Ground is a minimal industrial/wave duo formed in Los Angeles in the Spring of 2012. Making use exclusively of classic analog equipment, Pure Ground build a sonic template incorporating equal share of harmonious and discordant elements to drive their strain of rhythmic electronics. Present day dystopian realities and contemporary warfare influence the bands lyrical themes, with reference to 20th century science fiction and horror. The Daylight & Protection LP collects both of their cassette EPs in remixed and remastered form. They also recently released a limited VHS entitled Tenebrous Passages containing five works totalling near 20 minutes of collaged and manipulated video paired with exclusive audio tracks. Each VHS comes with a numbered print of a unique still taken from the videos in a limited edition of 60 copies.

In addition to these releases, Pure Ground will be making their way to Europe for the first time ever for just about a month. You can see the tour dates as well as an excerpt from Tenebrous Passages & Daylight & Protection below!
