Q&A: US band PVRIS on bringing their 'dark pop rock' mix to Belfast

US band PVRIS are set to perform their first Belfast show later this year.

After supporting rock giants Muse and Thirty Seconds to Mars, the trio will be hitting the road with a tour of their own across the UK and Ireland.

Following the release of their second album All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell, Lynn Gunn, Alex Babinski and Brian MacDonald are set to perform at Mandela Hall in Belfast on Saturday, November 25.

They will also reach London, Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham, as well as a gig at The Academy in Dublin.

Ahead of their upcoming gigs, lead guitarist Alex Babinski says he gets the feeling Belfast is ready for them:

Q. What can audiences expect from your gig at Mandela Hall in Belfast?

Loud music, bright lights, dancing and plenty of jumping

Q. How would you describe your particular style of music?

Best way to describe it I think would be a dark pop rock mix.

Q. Are you ready for your first experience of an NI audience?

We've never performed in Northern Ireland and I'm expecting an awesome show. I see a lot of the PVRIS Ireland accounts posting stuff online so I can tell they're ready for us!

Q. Which band/musician do you think everyone should see live?

Whoever you're current favorite musician is! Seeing your favorite bands perform live is one of the best things there is.

Q. What would you say are the best and worst things about touring?

The best thing about touring for me is getting to travel around and seeing how music connects with everyone in the world.

I would say the worst is probably just being away from family all year. That's the hardest thing for me.

Q. If you had to listen to one song on repeat for 24 hours what would it be?

Anything by Ben Howard

Q. Which of your gigs have been most memorable and why?

We recently played main stage at Reading and Leeds festival and that was truly a special time.
