PVRIS have delayed the release of their new album, Use Me.
Originally scheduled to release July 10th, the album will now come out August 28th due to singer Lynn Gunn’s decision that “self-promotion can wait for now.”
In a statement, Gunn explains she’d rather not “take up space promoting” the record and instead focus on supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.
“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.”
