Like many other bands who don't feel comfortable releasing new music in this time, PVRIS have announced that they've pushed back their upcoming record Use Me so as to not "take up space promoting it".

The full-length had originally been rescheduled for July 10, but will now come out on August 28 due to singer Lynn Gunn's decision that "self-promotion can wait for now". In the meantime, PVRIS will be revealing new ways in which they can continue to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Read Lynn's full statement below:

"I do not want to take up space in promoting Use Me at this moment in time, therefore will be pushing the album release back until August 28.

"Self-promotion can wait for now and I want to make room and hold space for the conversation and message of the Black Lives Matter movement to continue.

"As a way for the PVRIS community to give back in the meantime, we are in the process of setting up a charity auction and other activating events for us to come together, use our collective power for good and to give back.

"More details to come soon. Hope you can understand and respect this decision."
