Pierce the Veil has returned with their long-awaited new music video. On Monday (July 25), the San Diego-based band released the music video for their latest single, “Circles.” The clip, according to the band, is loosely based on the 1991 film, Nothing But Trouble, starring Chevy Chase, John Candy, and Dan Aykroyd.
The video begins with the band having no place to stay while on tour with their only option being a beat down, old house. When they enter the worn down abode, they are greeted by the owner, a creepy old dude. After accepting the key to their room, which looks like the previous guests had a satanic ritual, and taking a drink (featuring an eyeball cocktail), things seem to take a turn for the weird.
As the run down the halls of the haunted house, they stumble into a room with newspaper clippings posted on the walls. As they begin to read the headlines, they see that some of their friends have gone missing. Could they be next? Check out the video for “Circles” here.
While speaking with Alternative Press, Fuentes unveiled just why they decided to base the new clip on Nothing But Trouble. “We kind of loosely based it off of that and we kind of adjusted it more to what would we be doing, you know?” Fuentes begins.
“Everyday we have to check into a hotel on tour and so we kind of based it off of like, ‘What if we checked into this hotel and it was just this haunted hotel with this old man who tried to send us through his bag of tricks in his house and capture us.’ And it’s like he would be doing this for years and all of these bands had disappeared, you know? In this house and we’re trying to help each other out of it.”
“Circles” is featured on Pierce the Veil’s recently released record, Misadventures. In support of the album, the group recently announced plans to hit the North American touring circuit this fall. The complete list of upcoming tour stops can be seen here.
