In the new issue of Music Week, we catch up with rising rock trio Pvris all about their upcoming, highly-anticipated second album All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell – out August 25 via Rise Records/BMG. Following the huge global success of their 2014 debut, White Noise, frontwoman Lyndsey Gunnulfsen – aka Lynn Gunn - guitarist Alex Babinski and bassist Brian MacDonald are aiming for their biggest year ever.
In the feature, Gunn reflected on Pvris' journey so far, and how the success they’re currently enjoying is something she always dreamed of.
“It’s been a very busy, chaotic, hectic and messy journey, but a beautiful one,” she told Music Week. “I really believe in manifesting. Like, if you put your mind to it you can make anything happen, with realistic expectations and just keeping yourself in check. I was like, this might not happen, but I’ve always had it in my head that this was how the future was gonna be and that we were going to make it work no matter what. I’ve always wanted this, and I’ve always believed we could be here. I didn’t really know if it would ever happen – or fully, fully trust it – but I think the past two to three years have definitely shown just how powerful working hard is.”

In the feature, Pvris’ management - Matt Feldman, Matt Arsenault and Nathan James - also gives the inside story on how Pvris made White Noise in a house, and how the grand sounds heard on All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell are primed to make waves in the streaming world. Likewise, the band are gearing up for their own headline tour, Reading & Leeds Festival performances, and a north American trek supporting Muse and 30 Seconds To Mars. They stress, however, that it's important to remember their roots.
“The main thing is never forgetting where we came from,” says manager Matt Arsenault. “Not alienating our crowd, because that is our big market. But at the same time, you have to expand, too. If you keep taking the same tours, the same avenues, you can’t grow. I think our team has done a really good job with this, being smart and holding back from doing another tour straight away. If we’d done that, we would have missed the Muse and 30 Seconds To Mars tour.”
