Almost a year ago, PVRIS came to Paris and created #PVRISinParis for the first time. On April 12, 2016, the band came back, in a bigger venue, not so close to be sold out.

The band was joined by Paris local band The Earl Grey, who announced a new headline show for the end of the month. The band delivered an awesome show, with great lights, tons of energy and a captivating sound. Paul C. Wilson of Chunk! No, Captain Chunk joined the band with his screamo vocals on the song “We Are Young.”

The next band was British trio Bones, featuring two female vocalists who made the joke, “We are Bones, and you’ve just been boned!” The show was super-energetic, and even if not many people in the audience knew them, some choruses were sang back.

Then, it happened: PVRIS appeared onstage. Screams were heard from the front row to the back of the venue. With only one album in their discography, it was not a surprise to hear songs exclusively from White Noise, but the album is so good, no one minded. The energy of the band was present as usual, with vocalist Lynn Gunn smiling, moving and connecting with guitarist Alex Babinski and bassist/keyboardist Brian MacDonald. The audience was very pleased to see Lynn coming to them, holding hands and smiling. Substream photographer Edouard Camus attended to the show, from the pit to the back of the venue and brought back this live gallery.
