While her previous band, Ipso Facto, always had a sense of drama about it, Rosalie Cunningham moved into an even more theatrical direction with the formation of Purson -- she describes the band as specializing in "vaudeville carny psych".
Exploring the world of proto-metal, the English band weaves together influences like Cream, Deep Purple, and Jethro Tull into a quasi-mystical pastiche of psychedelic wonder made up of fuzzed-out guitars and Wurlitzer organs. Purson's full-length debut, the well-received The Circle and the Blue Door, arrived on Metal Blade in 2013. 2016 saw the band make the move to Spinefarm for their much anticipated sophomore outing, Desire's Magic Theatre. ~ Gregory Heaney
