Purity Ring join the Yellow Bird family

purity-ring-blog-2This unique design has come straight from the hands of the super talented Corin and Megan who are better known as Purity Ring.

After establishing a relationship at Field Day festival, the duo are helping raise money for Trekstock, to quote Corin “They are a rad organisation”.

Purity Ring arrived back in 2011, when the Corin and Megan came together to release their acclaimed first track “Ungirthed“. Their distinct, chilly R&B sound has found them fans across the world and seen them sign to 4AD Records. Their debut album, Shrines was released in July 2012, and the following year they collaborated with none other than Danny Brown for the track “25 Bucks“. Their second studio album, Another Entity was released in 2015.

We’ve got some news for you…

Group Mailer Crop

You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet on the YBP front. That’s because we’ve been busy, busy, busy. Busy behind the scenes planning some exciting changes to our humble organisation.

Which brings us to this important announcement…

After nearly 10 years of running YBP on a part-time, volunteer basis, the two of us are stepping down and handing over the reins to the good people at Trekstock, who have agreed to take over the operation so the brand can live on for many years to come!

Trekstock is a registered charity that raises vital funds for young adults living with cancer. We encourage you all to check out their website to see what kind of amazing work they’ve been doing. They’ve got a growing team with 6 full-time employees (plus an office dog, Serge) and a whole lotta passion.

With their resources and expertise in fundraising through music collaborations, they’ll be able to make more of a difference than we ever could on our own. We’ve been working closely with Sophie & Giles from Trekstock on getting everything underway!

As you might have guessed, since they are a charity, they’re not able to raise money for other charities, which means that all of YBP’s fundraising efforts will now be consolidated with Trekstock as the sole beneficiary. All of the bands have been made aware of this change and have been so super supportive! Together, we’re going to help change the game for young adults living with cancer.

We are thrilled about this opportunity to take YBP to the next level and grateful to have Trekstock on board as our successors. This change will take place effective immediately, so to kick things off…

The Yellow Bird Project presents a fresh batch of re-printed favourites, including Amanda Palmer, Beach House, Bon IverCHVRCHES, Daughter, John Grant and TV on the Radio in all sizes. Plus, four brand new exciting tees from from Warpaint, Metronomy, Local Natives and Purity Ring and plenty more on their way this year… The YBP store is open, so come check out the new range!

We should mention that this change will in no way affect our film,
A MATTER OF TIME, which is coming soon to a theatre near you.

Thank you for your continued support, for enabling our dream and playing a crucial role in the building of a brand that’s been fighting the good fight since its inception in 2006. We all look forward to growing the YBP community together.

Long live the bird!
Casey & Matt
