The Los Angeles-based trio PVMNTS has spent most of 2018 taking the pop-punk world by storm. Today, they are giving fans an early listen to their debut EP Better Days, ahead of its release this Friday, August 17th over at Billboard.com. The premiere comes along with an exclusive interview diving into the origin of the band, the meanings behind some of the tracks and a look ahead at what’s to come for the “ultra-promising pop-punk band.”
There’s a confidence within the EP’s six songs that some bands take years to develop, but also a measured sense of balance. Because PVMNTS’ three songwriters have a clear vision of how they see their future unfolding, and while they write songs that resonate on an emotional level, they realize the only way to make it through life’s hardships is with a little levity. (Look no further than the tale of bedroom mishaps “Another Monday.”)
From the outside, PVMNTS appear to be on the fast track to success. After all, not only did some of the Los Angeles-based pop-punk trio’s very first shows include a UK headlining tour in front of frenzied crowds and a highly coveted spot at the 2018 Slam Dunk Festival-but they did so on the back of a single demo recording, “Jumping Stairsets.” Quickly after that, the band joined the Full Sail University Stage in Ventura on the Final Cross Country Run of the Vans Warped Tour and then again joined up with the tour for the last 3 dates, closing out the stage on the final evening of the tour in West Palm Beach. The band recently appeared on MTV’s TRL and were guests on BUILD Series in New York City.
