Share Willie Nelson cover “One Day At A Time“
Rare Ecstasy Out October 16th on Fire Talk
Pure X is the last band, has always been the last band. Not that there won’t be future acts, more that Pure X understands that all this pageantry, this civilization is wrapping up. It burned hot and bright like thermite used to bust a safe open, but now is the age of radiating waves, each one buckles the foundation more than the last.

On the heels of their critically celebrated first album in 6 years that saw universal acclaim from outlets like Pitchfork, Stereogum, Paste, Brooklyn Vegan, Aquarium Drunkard, All Music, Line of Best Fit, Exclaim, Under The Radar, NME and Spin, the band are announcing Rare Ecstasy 2009-2019. Announced alongside a mesmeric cover of Willie Nelson’s “One Day At A Time,” the release is a collection of recordings and rarities that span the more than a decade career of the Austin underground legends. Comprised of tracks that reflect what Pitchfork once called the “druggy, wall-of-sound escapism that put them on the map,” these 12 tracks embody the Pure X sound, breaking it down and offering up a raw emotive portrait that cycle the band’s expansive output. A must have addition to the collection of any Pure X fan.
