Purity Of Essence is the ninth studio album by Australian rock band Hoodoo Gurus, originally released in March 2010 via Sony Music.

The Hoodoo Gurus formed in Sydney in 1981 by the mainstay Dave Faulkner (songwriter, lead singer and guitarist) and later joined by Richard Grossman (bass), Mark Kingsmill (drums), and Brad Shepherd (guitar, vocals, harmonica).

The album was co-produced by the band with Charles Fisher, who produced two of the band's previous albums, Mars Needs Guitars! and Blue Cave. The album was mixed by Ed Stasium, who previously worked with the band on the Kinky and Crank.

Their first single from the album, "Crackin' Up" was released three months earlier in December 2009. A second single, "I Hope You're Happy" appeared in March 2010 with the third single, "What's In It For Me?" issued subsequently.

The expression "Purity of Essence" is taken from the film Dr Strangelove where it forms a repeated part of the ramblings of an insane air force general.

The album reached #16 on the Australia ARIA albums charts.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2019 reissue on 180 gram red coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves and a printed insert and remastered audio, pressed in Australia via Big Time Records.
