PVRIS and OUT Magazine are premiering “Anyone Else,” the newest video/song from upcoming album, ALL WE KNOW OF HEAVEN, ALL WE NEED OF HELL – watch below…


Over the course of the past few months, the band has been previewing select songs from the album, releasing “
What’s Wrong” (which already has 3 million Spotify streams and 1.6 million YouTube views) and “Heaven” (which has 4.6 million Spotify streams and 1.6 million YouTube views) and most recently, “Winter” and “Half,” and all four songs (along with “Anyone Else”) are available as instant downloads by clicking HERE to pre-order the album ahead of this Friday’s August 25 release date.

Pre-order bundles featuring white and smoke-coloured vinyl are also available – click HERE for details.

PVRIS lead vocalist Lynn Gunn co-directed the “Anyone Else” video with Raul Gonzo (who’s directed every PVRIS video to date) and collaborated on the concept with Courtney Scarr (who’s seen dancing in the video). About the song and video, Gunn says:

The verses of this song were each written a year apart, therefore lies two contrasting perspectives. The first verse was written at the beginning of heartbreak… that feeling when you first leave someone yet you feel like a part of you will always belong to them. The second verse was written a year later… a different mindset, mostly reflecting on the toxicity and possessiveness of that same love. It is ambiguous as to what the ending perspective is… who do I belong to in the end? Myself or my past lover?

The past few years I’ve had this unexplained growing love for the Victorian Era/Early 20th century and much of the art and photographs that came from those periods. The energy of this song, as far as instrumentation and production, gives me the most unexplainable feeling… to me it feels so ethereal and dreamy and immediately transports me to old John William Waterhouse paintings and other worlds reminiscent of that. I really wanted this video to be a subtle homage to that unexplainable feeling as well as capture the energy of the contrasting perspectives that exists in the lyrics.

For the dance/choreographed part of the video, we had the pleasure of welcoming back Courtney Scarr (one of the dancers in the video for ‘What’s Wrong’). We were incredibly lucky to have her on board with this shoot in bringing the energy of the contrasting perspectives to life on screen. The idea to have her on board for this video was actually pretty serendipitous… I was listening to a mix of the song while scrolling on Instagram and she had just posted a video of some choreography she had just learned, the song and her movements in the video synched up perfectly and it dawned on me that she needed to be in this video… She also has an energy/look that resembles a lot of the women that Waterhouse would paint.”

Fans can catch PVRIS (vocalist Lynn Gunn, guitarist Alex Babinski and bassist Brian MacDonald) performing a mix of new tracks and hits from previous release White Noise on tour, and the band recently announced that a portion of every ticket sold for their upcoming fall headlining run will be donated to The Ally Coalition in support of LGBTQ equality.
