PVRIS have officially started their new era, releasing their first new music since last year’s album Use Me.

The new song, “Monster,” arrives ahead of their new headlining tour, which is set to kick off August 6 with openers Royal & the Serpent.

“‘Monster’ is a song about reckoning with outside opinions and expectations put upon oneself,” says frontwoman Lynn Gunn. “It can be easy to take on the weight of negative situations/opinions, this is about the struggle of releasing those inhibitions and internalizations and returning back to yourself.”

Earlier this month, PVRIS, which now consists of Gunn and Brian MacDonald, announced that they’d be “debuting three new songs on tour to give you an advanced preview of what’s to come,” adding, “It’s about to get crazy.” Presumably, “Monster” is one of those songs.
