In 2014, PVRIS released their acclaimed debut album ‘White Noise’. Now, after supporting Muse and Thirty Seconds To Mars on their tours and gaining a global following, they’re back with a new album — ‘All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell’ and an even bigger tour to follow. From Massachusetts, the band consists of Lynn Gunn, Alex Babinski and Brian MacDonald – who originally formed as a metalcore group, but their sound has since been described as ‘post-hardcore’.
AC: You recently posted a photo showing that forty-five songs had been written for this second album, might there be songs in there that we will hear at a later date?
LYNN: Possibly! We are constantly writing so there is always a new flood of work. It really just comes down to what we’re still able to connect with and excited by. It would be fun at some point to just release them all with reckless abandon someday.
You are coming back for a European Tour, what keeps bringing you back?
All the amazing support and experiences we’ve had, our fanbase has been growing pretty rapidly over the past few years. We’d love to continue developing that relationship and connection!
Which countries outside of America would you say are particularly embracing your music?
In particular, the UK has been incredibly supportive and passionate about our band. We got incredibly lucky over there.
Would you say that your sound has changed and developed slightly since your first album?
We wrote our first album over three years ago, that in itself inspired a natural change and growth. We’ve all grown as musicians, humans and bandmates. Naturally, there has also been a shift in our thoughts, we’ve learned so much and have grown up at a pretty fast rate.
