It’s been almost a year since PVRIS returned, broken mirror in hand, and found a new balance between ‘All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell’. Backstage at Slam Dunk, Lynn Gunn reflects on a crazy twelve months, and what’s coming next…
Hello Lynn. On your first record it felt like you were constantly chasing something, but this time around, it feels more deliberate?
This touring cycle there’s been more breaks, which has been nice so that we can recharge. We have a few more options to play with or a few more opportunities to pick and choose what we do.
It’s coming up to a year since the record came or out or since we first started talking about it at least. How’s the past year been for you?
It’s been good. This whole record cycle has been a big learning and growing experience, as a team and as a band but also internally for me. Personally, a lot of it has been difficult, but it’s also been good. We’re all in a really good place right now. We’re ready to take on whatever’s next.
Do you have any regrets about anything you put out or said on that record? It’s one of those albums where you’re going through things in real time.
I don’t regret it. I feel like it’s hard to regret things that shape you so I’m proud of this record and I’m really glad I got all that out. I feel like we’re through all of it, for the most part, knock on wood. Things will always come up and remind you of where you used to be, but I’m in a good spot, and I’ve figured out how to handle things a lot better. When we first put the record out, I felt so not ready for any of it to be heard but now it feels good, and it feels like a lot of it is real, which is nice.
