PVRIS return with their first new song in two years

It’s official. PVRIS is back with a brand new track! On Friday (July 12), the Massachuttes-founded band unleashed their first new song in two years. Titled “Death of Me,” the tune finds the group honing in on what they do best; mixing rock music with electro-pop.

The new song comes days after the band first began teasing fans on social media about the potential of new music. The group confirmed the speculation by posting a 15-second clip on Twitter and the caption “New song, new video. Friday.”

To coincide with the song’s release, the band unveiled the track’s music video.

“We wanted to match the seductive grittiness of the song with uncertain, tense and subliminal visual themes,” vocalist Lynn Gunn said about the Katharine White-directed video.

“We also hid – in plain view – references to the occult and divination, to be unpacked by the viewer… if they so choose.”

Watch the music video for “Death of Me” above.

According to a press statement, “Death of Me” is the first taste of PVRIS’ upcoming new album. The yet-to-be-titled record will be released through the act’s new home of Reprise/Warner Records. No word yet on when the group’s third studio album will reportedly be released. PVRIS’ last studio album was 2017’s All We Know of Heaven, All We Need is Hell.

In support of the new tune, PVRIS previously announced a slew of gigs. The band will perform at a handful of European music festivals this August including Reading and Leeds, Pukkelpop Festival, and Milano Rocks. The trio will return stateside in September for Riot Fest Chicago for the music festival’s massive 15th-anniversary event.

Dan Reynolds, Kesha, Tegan & Sara to headline LoveLoud Festival 2019

Kesha, Tegan & Sara, and Martin Garrix are just some of the acts who will make their way to Utah in the summer for the annual LoveLoud Festival. On Wednesday (March 13), festival creator and Imagine Dragons’ frontman Dan Reynolds formally announced the lineup for the 2019 incarnations of the annual event.

Joining Kesha, Tegan & Sara, and Martin Garrix on the lineup for the third annual festival are PVRIS, Grouplove, Daya, K. Flay, Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!, and Reynolds. According to a press statement, additional performers and speakers will be announced at a later date.

“I’m truly honored and humbled to be headlining LoveLoud this year,” Kesha said in a statement.

“I stand with my talented friend Dan Reynolds and Imagine Dragons in this fight for equality. We need to make sure that all LGBTQ+ people feel accepted and supported and that families have the support that they need. It’s important to try to keep families together and having positive, open-minded conversations and, for me, to be a part of something that can continue building the bridge to create a safe space for everyone sounds like a beautiful opportunity. A place that supports all people and all love.”

Reynolds founded the LoveLoud Foundation and its companion festival in 2017 as a way to raise money and awareness for organizations that benefit the LGBTQ+ community, particularly those focused on mental health and suicide prevention.

As with the past incarnations of the festival, this year they aim to raise more than $1,000,000 which will be donated to a slew of LGBTQ+ organizations including The Trevor ProjectGLAAD, the Human Rights CampaignTegan and Sara Foundation, and Encircle. Last year, the festival surpassed its goal.

LoveLoud Festival will take place on June 29 at the USANA Amphitheatre in West Valley City, Utah. The date for the one-day event also has a special meaning; it’s the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.

On June 28, 1969, New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in Greenwich Village, and roughly hauled employees and patrons out of the bar. The next day, angry patrons and neighborhood residents took to the streets to protest the treatment which led to violent clashes between the protesters and law enforcement.

For those who will not be able to make it in person, the entire event will be live-streamed on AT&T’s social media channels.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 15, at 10 a.m. MST. For returning LoveLoud Festival attendees, an exclusive pre-sale is currently happening here.

Muse announces the release of one-off single

Over the past week, Muse has been taking to social media to tease some major news for their longtime followers (one of the videos can be seen above). At the time, those who were following the group were left with the lingering question of what the teasing may be about. On Thursday (May 11), the English band put those fans’ thoughts to rest when the revealed that they will be releasing a brand new song; their first in nearly two years. The new track is titled “Dig Down” and will make its worldwide debut next Thursday, May 18.

The band made the formal announcement on their official Twitter which featured a new photograph of the trio and the caption, “‘Dig Down’ new single coming 18 May.” According to the band, the song will be a one-off and not part of any new record. The song’s debut will come a couple of days before they hit the road for their summer tour with 30 Seconds to Mars and PVRIS.

The tour will kick off on May 20 at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida and wrap up four months later on Sept. 20 at the USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

“Dig Down” will be Muse’s first new song since the release of their seventh studio album, Drones, which came out in the summer of 2015.

PVRIS release new single, confirm new album

A day after unleashing their much-anticipated new single, PVRIS has returned with not only its music video, but also a new album confirmation. On Monday (May 1), the Massachusetts-founded band released their almost-five-minute black-and-white music video for “Heaven.” Check out the music video above.

During the weekend, the group spoke with BBC Radio 1 DJ Daniel P. Carter where the original track made its world-wide debut. During their appearance, the DJ tried to pry more information out for singer Lynn Gunn, but she remained tight-lipped about their upcoming album. Instead, she answered a fan-submitted question about the group’s use/idea of Heaven and Hell which seemed to be a recurring theme for the new album.

“This record is kinda meant to throw you a curve, like, ‘is this more in the heaven zone or the hell zone or is it some weird purgatory thing?’ and it’s this weird juxtaposition, ironic world that you’re thrown into. People will see that visually as well as in a lot of the lyrics,” Gunn explained.

In addition to the new song, the group also confirmed that their sophomore album will see a summer release date to coincide with their busy summer plans. The new record will be titled All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell is set to be released on Aug. 4 through Rise Records. The band also confirmed they had reunited with Blake Harnage for this new record; Harnage produced their debut, White Noise.

Pre-orders for All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell are currently available on the band’s website here. Those who pre-order the record will receive an instant download of “Heaven.” All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell is the follow-up to the group’s hot debut album, White Noise.

In support of the upcoming new album PVRIS’ summer will be filled with nothing but tour dates. PVRIS will hit the road with Muse and 30 Seconds to Mars beginning on May 20 at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida. The tour will then conclude a couple of months later on Sept. 20 at the USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City, Utah. The full list of upcoming tour dates can be found here.

Muse, 30 Seconds to Mars, and PVRIS to embark on summer tour

Last month, Muse and 30 Seconds to Mars were confirmed to headline not one, but two major music festivals; Bunbury in Cincinnati, Ohio and Firefly in Dover, Delaware. Now, fans of both bands have been advised that the two music festivals were just the beginning of a major spring and summer tour. On Monday (Feb. 6), both bands unveiled that they will be hitting the road beginning this May for a four-month excursion.

The joint tour will kick off on May 20 at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida and wrap up four months later on Sept. 20 at the USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City.

Last August, they released a 39-second clip which featured what fans assumed to be a snippet of a new song and a sign that read “COMING 2017.” For now, check out the complete list of upcoming tour dates below.
