No, no, this isn’t what it sounds like. PVRIS (pronounced “Paris”) isn’t adapting any kind of pious virtues on their next album— they’re simply recording new material in a haunted church turned recording studio. The new album will be the sophomore follow up to the Massachusetts synthpop band’s highly successful release White Noise.
PVRIS had this to say on the latest episode of the Mike Herrera Hour:
“We’re going into the studio this fall; doing some writing trips over the summer. We’re gonna go to New Orleans for a week; we’re gonna go to the UK for a week—get some old history vibes going on. We [have] confirmed that we’re gonna be recording up in upstate New York in an old church [that has been] renovated into a studio. Apparently it’s haunted, and apparently the house that we’re staying at is haunted too.”
PVRIS, who released a deluxe edition of White Noise earlier this week, is currently on a nearly sold out headlining tour. They will be playing two hometown shows in Boston on June 9th and 10th at the Royale in Boston with Lydia and CRUISR playing in support.
