Jon Hopkins returns to North America this month in support of new album, Immunity, released this past June. He'll play PS1 Warmup in New York, plus a newly announced headlining show in Brooklyn, and two shows at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles with Purity Ring. A full list of dates are below.

These LA shows continue Purity Ring and Hopkins' mutual admiration and enduring creative relationship -- Hopkins mixed Purity Ring's "Saltkin" and recently remixed the song, "Amenamy," both tracks from their album, Shrines, and in turn, Purity Ring's Megan James has added vocals to Immunity's "Breathe This Air." Megan's vocals transform the track into a vast and shimmering expanse, bringing waves of beautiful melancholy to the original's dark and dusty techno. Listen to the track below.

Both tracks will appear on a very limited 12" vinyl single, of which 175 will be given away at the Fonda Theatre shows on a first-come-first-serve basis.
