PVRIS have confirmed on their socials that their scheduled Spring 2022 tour will now take place in 2023. The announcement was accompanied by an unusually candid statement about the reasons for the delays, including residual issues with the pandemic and disputes with their record label.
New tour dates have already been scheduled and announced, and the band assured fans that the new record is on the way.
PVRIS’s Lynn Gunn said: “The original spring 2022 headline tour dates were meant to be accompanied by a brand new PVRIS album.
“Due to the unlimited amount of obstacles and setbacks brought on from the pandemic along with being placed in limbo by our old label; the lack of space, lack of time, lack of budget and conflict of priorities/interest regarding the PVRIS brand and community (from them not us) proved it nearly impossible to have this album written, recorded, conceptualized, up to standard and ready for your consumption by the time of this tour.
“I never want to compromise the creative quality or integrity of our music and visuals. This is something that unfortunately had to be done too many times on this past album cycle (we gave it our best despite the circumstances). I refuse to do that moving forward. PVRIS deserves better and you deserve better, as you are the sole reason we get to do what we do.
“Our spring tour will be moved to 2023. PVRIS now free to move forward into this next chapter.
“Thank you for your patience. Album in progress. Let’s make this the best one yet.”
PVRIS last released the stand-alone single ‘Monster’ via Warner Records, but the statement above infers that the band and the label have now parted ways. PVRIS signed to Warner Records back in 2019, but there is a notable reference to their “old label” in the statement issued by the group.
