PVRIS have postponed their upcoming tour of Europe and the UK, moving their starting point to next January from later in April.
The nine-month delay comes as the band decided to focus on their as-yet-unannounced album, which frontwoman Lynn Gunn announced in a release today (May 5).
Gunn explained that the tour was originally “intended to be accompanied by a brand new PVRIS album,” but up to that point, she and her bandmates had been held back by “the unlimited amount of obstacles and setbacks caused by the pandemic,” as well lack of support from their former label Rise Records.
Explaining this notice, she cited the label’s “lack of space, lack of time, lack of budget, and conflict of priorities/interests regarding the PVRIS brand and community” and said that as a result, it “became almost impossible to have this album written, recorded.” , designed, of standard and ready for consumption at the time of this tour”.
Noting that PVRIS is “now free to move forward into this next chapter,” Gunn continued, “I never wish to compromise on the creative quality or integrity of our music and visuals. This is something that has sadly had to be done too often in the past album cycle (we did our best despite the circumstances). I refuse to do this in the future.
“PVRIS deserves better and you deserve better because you are the only reason we do what we do.”

The band released their third album Use Me in August 2020.
