Up to now, PVRIS line-up is unchanged: soloist Lynn Gunn, Brian MacDonald on bass and guitarist & keyboardist Alex Babinski.

Releasing the first eponymously-titled EP on March 23, 2013, the band began to flourish very quickly and attract people's attention after touching on the Warped Tour along with such popular bands as A Skylit Drive, Mayday Parade and Tonight Alive, having only one EP on hands and a couple of singles.Next step was releasing full-length musical opus.
