Combine electropop with rock and cover it in darkness, and you have the sound of American rock band PVRIS. The band has been described as post-hardcore, alt-rock and synth-pop. It may be difficult to put a label on the band, but its recipe seems to be a winning one. It's won awards for its music nearly every year since its 2012 advent. When not turning critical heads, PVRIS made new fans touring with Bring Me the Horizon and Fall Out Boy. It also played the Battle of the Bands stage at Warped Tour and Lollapolooza, pleasing fans with its hybrid sound.
Defying Genres, Impressing Critics, Making Fans
The acoustic audio video for "Only Love" from early 2014 is still the band's most-viewed video, but it was their first album, White Noise, that made a big splash with critics. The song "You and I" from that album was the first to chart in the US and the UK after it debuted on Radio 104.5. The band won Rock Sound's Artist Of The Year in 2017 while singer Lynn received the Rock Sound icon from them the following year - the same year she was featured on "Disappear" by Tonight Alive. Boston Music Awards awarded the band Artist of the Year twice, and PVRIS has won awards from Alternative Press Music, AltRock and Kerang! Its followup in 2017, All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell, charted in the US, UK and Australia. PVRIS debuted the song "Heaven" from that album on BBC's Radio 1 Rock Show. It returned to Radio 1 to release "What's Wrong" from that same album on Annie Mac. After a switch to Reprise/Warner Records, PVRIS released the song "Death of Me" in July 2019, and the song debuted at No. 1 on the Kerrang Rock Chart. The band has yet to release information about its forthcoming album.
