If there is a band that everyone ever needs to know about currently, it would have to be PVRIS. This alternative rock group, that borders pop punk, has been around since 2012. Their sound has evolved from when they were first together under the name Paris. Despite the name, they’re an American bunch from Lowell, Massachusetts. Now, signed to Rise/Velocity Records, they released their debut album on the record titled “White Noise.”
Their music is overwhelming in the best possible way. Their single “St. Patrick” was successful across alternative radio stations and among new fans. The album, which released in late October 2014, debuted at #6 on the US Alternative charts and 88th overall. The sound of the album has been related to that of Set It Off and Tonight Alive. The ensemble has been on tour with Sleeping With Sirens and Pierce The Veil for almost a month now and the new exposure has been great for their fan base. The Houston date was sold out and even though their set was limited to thirty minutes, they put on a great performance!
If you like great music, I would highly suggest taking a listen on Spotify, then grabbing a copy from iTunes! You can also follow them on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Catch them on Warped Tour this summer at Reliant!
