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.

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.
