PVRIS’ New Album Use Me Has Been Pushed Back
The release date of PVRIS’ new album Use Me has been pushed back to July 10.
While the record was originally set to come out on May 1, the band have stated that due to circumstances beyond their control, there will now be a two-month wait.
“We’re working on a few things to make it up to you and hold you over,” they say. “Thanks for your continued support. We hope you’re all staying safe during this time.”

“I’m real sad guys,” says Lynn Gunn. “Just an FYI, I’ve been team, ‘Let’s put this out May 1 and give the people what they want!!!’ with this entire situation. I think right now is a time where everyone could use a little music to light up the darkness a bit… but it’s out of my hands.
“But we’re underdogs and underdogs don’t quit and we don’t lose hope!! I’m gonna be fighting my ass off to get something(s) new out to you guys in the meantime, if we gotta go rogue, we’re gonna go rogue.”

Don’t worry, Lynn, we’ll be waiting.
Discussing this next era of the band and how she is finally stepping into the role of PVRIS’ official leader, Lynn says: “I allowed myself to support a narrative I thought I had to support of PVRIS being a band. I didn’t really have a role model for this. Coming from a ‘band culture,’ it’s about how the group is always greater than the sum of its parts, and you’re not supposed to take credit, even if you do everything. There’s no template or role model for really owning it as a woman. I wanted to make everyone else happy and uphold an image I thought we had to.

“Growing up, I learned I don’t have to do that anymore. I’m finally allowing myself to take credit. I’ve got the full support and encouragement of my bandmates. PVRIS is a unit and very much a team, but the heart and soul of the vision and music always has sourced from me. I’m just saying it now. I fulfilled my own vision of what a role model should be.”
Not for the first time, PVRIS have moved back the release date of their new album Use Me.
