Pierce the Veil unleash trippy video for new single

Fresh off their tour with Rise Against, Pierce the Veil has returned with a brand new music video for their latest single. On Wednesday (Oct. 11), the California-based band unleashed their trippy music video for “Today I Saw the Whole World.” The video begins with the band inside of what appears to be a studio with white walls surrounding them. As the music picks up, we watch as the four-piece stick to just playing their instruments before the viewer is taken on a trippy journey when random clips are projected on the white walls. If you think the clip is very reminiscent of music videos from the 90s, that’s exactly what the group was going for according to frontman Vic Fuentes.

“I grew up watching massive amounts of MTV music videos throughout the 90’s. I would record all of my favorites on VHS tape, watching them over and over until the tape wore out,” recalls Fuentes. “Our new video was inspired by some of these artists that I loved back then like the Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill and Marilyn Manson. We wanted to use this 90’s look to visually express the lyrics and fury inside of the song.”

The almost four-minute clip was directed by Dan Fusselman whose resume includes videos for Neck Deep, Silversun Pickups, and August Burns Red. Watch the clip above.

The release of the music video comes a few months after the band formally announced their plans to unleash the clip. Taking to Instagram, the group post an image of themselves from behind the screen of a camera with the caption, “Shooting a new video for ‘Today I Saw the Whole World.’”

“Today I Saw the Whole World” is featured on Pierce the Veil’s recently released record, MisadventuresMisadventures was released back in May of 2016 and earned the top spot on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums, Top Hard Rock Albums, Independent Albums, and Top Rock Albums charts. Earlier this month, Pierce the Veil announced the release of their Today I Saw the Whole World EP exclusively on Spotify. The EP features the original version of the song as well as an acoustic version. Listen to the Today I Saw the Whole World EP here.

Pierce the Veil transport to the 50s in new music video

Over the past week, the guys from Pierce the Veil have released teasing images from the set of their recently completed music video. On Friday (Feb. 10), the California-founded band finally unveiled the completed clip for “Floral & Fading,” the latest single off their recently released record Misadventures.

The music video, which looks like it was somewhat inspired by Weezer’s “Buddy Holly,” begins with a couple parked outside of a neighborhood bowling alley. The scene soon shifts to inside the alley where several “good kids” seem to be spending their Friday evening hanging out and playing some games. The manager is then heard over the speaker system, telling all the kids to “come over here” because some band named “Pierce the Veil” was going to put on a show for them.

On a makeshift stage, the guys from PTV appear, decked out in some awkward and weird 50s attire including combed and gelled down hair, polyester pants, and sweater vests. The kids start to gather around the band as they begin to play the song. At first, it appears like it’s going to be a slow and non-eventful evening until two guys bump into each other. Instead of shaking it off, a fight ensues. Gone is the quiet slow dancing, and a mosh pit begins to form in the middle of the bowling alley.

Check out the complete video for “Floral & Fading” above.

“Floral & Fading” is featured on Pierce the Veil’s recently released record, Misadventures. In support of the 2016 release, the band will embark on their “Rest in Space” tour with Falling in Reverse and Crown the Empire. The tour will begin next Friday, Feb. 17, at the McDonald Theatre in Eugene, Oregon and wrap up several weeks later on March 10 at Club XS in Tucson, Arizona.

Pierce the Veil ‘Dive In’ in new music video

image

Over the past few months, Pierce the Veil has been a little on the quiet side. With a massive tour that found the four-piece endlessly performing for their die-hard fan base across the world, it’s understandable that the news from their camp has been at a minimal. On Tuesday (Nov. 22), things changed just a little when the California-based band released the music video for their latest single, “Dive In.” The almost five-minute-long clip features normal live music video staples like footage of the fans, the band on stage performing, the crew setting up the venue(s) for the show(s), and of course all the crazy hi-jinx that goes on behind-the-scenes (softball? ping-pong? a trip to the aquarium?). Check out the music video for “Dive In” below.

“Dive In” is featured on Pierce the Veil’s recently released record, Misadventures. The record, the band’s fourth, is the much-anticipated follow-up to 2012’s Collide with the Sky. Currently, the band is in the middle of the European leg of the “Misadventures” tour. Earlier this year, during the first leg of the tour, the band announced that they would play the full new album, which was a first for the band.

“We wanted to celebrate our new album by putting on a once in a lifetime performance for our fans and offer them something that we’ve never done in the past,” said frontman Vic Fuentes back in May. “Playing an album live in its entirety is a rare and unique experience. It’s special because it usually only happens once, and then it’s gone forever. We look forward to sharing these new songs and seeing everyone at the shows.”

Once the European leg of the tour wraps, the band will return to the United States for a couple of shows before the holidays. Tonight, the Pierce the Veil will perform at the Substage in Karlsruhe, Germany. For more information about the upcoming shows, go to the band’s website here.

Pierce the Veil brave a haunted house for ‘Circles’

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.

Weeks after confirming a new album and a short summer tour, Pierce the Veil has debuted another new song from their upcoming new album. On Tuesday (April 26), the California-based band debuted their brand new song on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. The track which is titled “Circles” is the band’s third single off of their impending new record, Misadventures.

The San Diego four-piece was on hand to debut the song alongside Mac. During the interview that followed the song’s world premiere, Pierce the Veil announced plans to hit the European road later this year. “Come November 25, we will be doing a headlining tour in the UK,” announced bassist Jaime Preciado which led to around of applause and cheers from the rest of the band and Mac. Tour dates and more information about the European leg of the upcoming tour is currently available on the band’s website.

“Circles” as well as the band’s interview with Mac can be streamed here. “Circles” will join previous singles “Texas is Forever” and “The Divine Zero” on Misadventures. The new record is set to be released on May 13 through Fearless Records.

It’s going to be a year since Pierce the Veil released their last new song, “The Divine Zero.” On Thursday (March 24), things changed for fans of the California-based band. As promised last Friday when they confirmed the release of their upcoming fourth studio album, the band released the lead single from the impending release, “Texas is Forever.”

“‘Texas is Forever’ is a fast song, the fastest song we’ve ever done,” explains Pierce the Veil bassist Jaime Preciado about the over three-minute track. “It goes back to our roots and is going to be a fun song to play live,” added frontman Vic Fuentes. “It’s purely a self-indulgent song for us because it’s really fast and that’s what we grew up listening to. Lyrically, it closes the book on a relationship that I’ve been singing about over the last three albums.”

“Texas is Forever” is currently available on the band’s website for streaming, but the song can currently be streamed below without any hassle. Listen to “Texas is Forever” below.

Thursday also marks the first day fans of PTV can start placing their order for Misadventures. Those who pre-order the record ahead of time will receive an instant-grat download of “Texas is Forever.” Misadventures is set to be released on May 13 through Fearless Records and is the follow-up to 2012’s hit album, Collide with the Sky.

The upcoming release was produced by Dan Korneff whose credits include Motionless in White, Sleeping with Sirens, and Pierce the Veil’s own Collide with the Sky.

Pierce the Veil confirm new album title, release teaser

When Pierce the Veil was confirmed as one of the many acts to hit the road for the 2015 Vans Warped Tour, speculation began that the group would be releasing their much-anticipated new album that summer. Right before hitting the road on the traveling rock show, the group dropped a brand new song, “The Divine Zero,” which only added to the already buzzing rumor mill. Ever since then, no update on the new record has been made though their record label, Fearless Records, had announced 2016 would be the year.

On Friday (March 18), everything changed with the band taking to Twitter to not only confirm the release of the new album for 2016, but they also provided their patient fans with the official name and release date. The California-based band’s long-awaited fourth studio album will be titled Misadventures and is set to be released on May 13 through Fearless Records. The upcoming release was produced by Dan Korneff whose credits include Motionless in White and PTV buddies, Sleeping with Sirens.

The record will feature 11 new tracks, though one of those 11 tracks is “The Divine Zero.” According to the band, the first single off of the impending record will be a track titled, “Texas is Forever” which will be released in conjunction with the launch of pre-orders. Pre-orders for Misadventures will go on sale beginning next Thursday, March 24. For now, the album art, track list, and a teaser from the band can be seen below.
