The morn­ing of Au­gust 22, 2016 was a bit­ter­sweet mo­ment for the three mem­bers of PVRIS. In the days, weeks and months fol­low­ing the re­lease of their de­but al­bum White Noise in late 2014, the band found them­selves swept up in a per­pet­ual state of tran­sit as they criss-crossed the world in sup­port of its re­lease.the pre­vi­ous day, they’d per­formed a six-song set at Osaka’s Sum­mer Sonic fes­ti­val along­side the likes of At The Drive In, Billy Tal­ent, coldrain and Tonight Alive – show num­ber 261 as a band with an al­bum in the shops – a gig which of­fi­cially marked the end of the White Noise cy­cle.with their bags packed, the band headed to the air­port to make the ex­haust­ing 17-hour jour­ney back home for some much-needed rest and re­cu­per­a­tion.

“We didn’t re­ally have a break un­til that point,” says vo­cal­ist Lynn Gunn to­day, look­ing back from her home. “Even when you have time off, you’re still work­ing. So it was like go­ing from 100 miles per hour to just noth­ing. It was like emo­tional whiplash.”
