PVRIS, Massachusetts’ sensational electronic and rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Rebel Toronto!
The band (pronounced Paris) was formed in Lowell in 2012 under the name Operation Guillotine. They were originally a metalcore band but a line-up change also lead to an unplanned genre change. When new members entered the recording studio, the emerging sound incorporated pop and electronic elements with rock. They named themselves Paris but later had to change it to PVRIS for legal reasons. The band is currently composed of Lyndsey ‘Lynn Gunn’ Gunnulfsen (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards), Alex Babinski (lead guitar, keyboards), and Brian MacDonald (bass guitar, keyboards). They released their eponymous debut EP in 2013 and made a name for themselves by performing on the Vans Warped Tour, and later on the Rise Up Tour with acts such as A Skylit Drive, Wolves at the Gate, and For All Those Sleeping.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists and their dark, beat-heavy, electronica-laced alternative rock!
