PVRIS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM
ALL WE KNOW OF HEAVEN, ALL WE NEED OF HELL
OUT AUGUST 4
AND RELEASE NEW SINGLE HEAVEN
PVRIS have announced the release of their much anticipated new album ALL WE KNOW OF HEAVEN, ALL WE NEED OF HELL, which is available to pre-order now and will be released August 4. The band have also released the stunning first single Heaven, along with a companion video directed by PVRIS vocalist Lynn Gunn and longtime video collaborator Raul Gonzo. ALL WE KNOW OF HEAVEN, ALL WE NEED OF HELL was recorded with Blake Harnage (who produced PVRIS’ 2014 debut, White Noise).
Fans can catch the band performing the first single live on their upcoming arena tour with Muse and Thirty Seconds To Mars. The tour, which kicks off May 20 in West Palm Beach, FL, will be preceded by a string of European shows, a May 13 date in Richmond, VA, with Weezer and a May 20 Hangout Festival set, which will see PVRIS sharing the stage with Twenty One Pilots, Major Lazer, Sigur Rósand more. The band’s extensive road plans also include shows in Australia – where they will be touring with The Amity Affliction – and festivals including Reading and Leeds, Bumbershoot and more.
The Boston-based PVRIS (vocalist Lynn Gunn, guitarist Alex Babinski and bassist Brian MacDonald) just tore through SXSW, performing at the MTV Woodies and the TUMBLR “Planned Parenthood” event, which USA Today called “the hottest ticket at SXSW.”
With ALL WE KNOW OF HEAVEN, ALL WE NEED OF HELL, PVRIS will look to build upon the success of White Noise and a collection of songs that’ve amassed over 113 million Spotify streams and close to 32 million YouTube views to date (including 17 million Spotify streams and 3.8 million YouTube views for their single You And I). In support of White Noise, the band performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, were spotlighted on Last Call with Carson Daly, toured arenas with Fall Out Boy, hit No. 1 on Billboard’s “Emerging Artists” and “Trending 140” charts and launched a headline tour that saw them play to packed-house crowds around the world. NME called them “a rock sensation,” Spin dubbed them a “breakout band,” MTV described them as “the best thing since sliced bread” and the Huffington Post called Gunn “a force that cannot be denied.”
