Interview: PVRIS

All we knew of PVRIS a few years ago was that they were fresh off a stellar debut release and a three-piece band that was certainly one to watch. Now, PVRIS is an extremely successful alternative band, with a uniqueness to their music that’s lead them to tours with Fall Out Boy, and even taken them as far Coachella. Their most recent release, All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell, is an indie-rock blend of laid-back sounds to in your face instrumentals, existing in perfect harmony, sounding like no other band out there right now, which is exactly what is needed in today’s market. I had the pleasure of speaking to Brian MacDonald [bass, pictured above, left] prior to the start of their headlining tour about PVRIS’ experiences over the last few years, how it’s shaped their songwriting and the contrast of blending the visual appeal of music videos to match the content of their message.

The Welsh pop-punk group has been through more than the average band in their career so far. From signing to a major label in 2013, touring the world for most of the year, to dealing with loved ones passing away, it has been a non-stop whirlwind for these lads. However, they've kept their heads on, and they are striving ahead with an incredibly positive outlook on their music, and their lives - something they hope they can inspire fans to do as well. They have an incredibly balanced perspective on all of the emotions that they've had to deal with, from pain and sorrow, to complete joy, understanding that in life, we need a bit of both. I got to chat with lead vocalist Ben Barlow [pictured above, centre] prior to their show in Calgary, where we talked about the band's triumphant new record, The Peace And The Panic.
