The alternative and rock vibes fused with electro-pop sounds have set PVRIS apart from your average pop/rock band. This uniqueness garnered the band wild success over their debut album, White Noise, and instantaneous success following the recent release of their latest album, All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell. Now just a few months after the sophomore album release, PVRIS has announced a 2018 headlining tour of North America that will begin Feb. 15.
Comprised of Lynn Gunn, Alex Babinski, and Brian MacDonald, the electro-rock trio gained critical acclaim with their debut album. The album deals with heavier—but incredibly honest—themes like depression, alienation, and oppression that are stories based off Gunn’s experience with sexuality. All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell take these themes and new ones one step further. PVRIS released select tracks leading up the album’s release, building anticipation that ultimately resulted in the album charting at the number five spot on Billboard’s Rock Chart and number one on the Emerging Artist Chart. Overall, the album’s hardcore sonic pairs perfectly with the themes PVRIS explores, and the band ultimately stirs raw emotions within us that bridge the gap between artist and fan.
PVRIS is already well-acquainted with the road: the band is currently touring the album in Europe and had their first headlining tour in 2016. They’ve also toured with musical giants like Muse and Fall Out Boy, as well as at huge festivals like Warped Tour and Lollapalooza. On top of their musical ability, the band’s authenticity and stirring energy have garnered an impressive 122 million Spotify streams and 33 million YouTube views to date. They’ve played to sold out crowds around the world, so now’s your chance to hear them live.
