LOS ANGELES, CA – Pierce the Veil fans, the wait is finally over. After nearly 820,000 views of the band’s video album announcement posted last Friday, the much-anticipated Misadventures will be available for digital pre-orders beginning tonight at 9PM PT/Midnight ET. But wait, there’s more: fans will get a first taste of the new music as placing an album pre-order will unlock an instant-grat download of the track, “Texas is Forever.” Go to PierceTheVeil.net for more information and to place your digital pre-order tonight. Pre-order details for the physical CD will be announced soon.
“‘Texas is Forever’ is a fast song, the fastest song we’ve ever done,” said PTV’s bass player Jaime Preciado. “It goes back to our roots and is going to be a fun song to play live.” Added vocalist 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.”
Misadventures is the follow up to the band’s breakthrough album, 2012’s Collide With The Sky that has sold more than 400,000 copies worldwide. The band – Vic Fuentes/vocals, guitar, Tony Perry/guitar, Jaime Preciado/bass, and Mike Fuentes/drums – recorded Misadventures on and off between Summer 2014 and Summer 2015, working again with producer Dan Korneff who co-produced Collide. On Misadventures, PTV spins together eleven sonic stories driven by a high-energy hard rock soundtrack.
ABOUT PIERCE THE VEIL
Six years ago, Pierce the Veil was playing small clubs and side stages at Warped and other music festivals. With the 2012 release of their album Collide with the Sky, PTV exploded, selling out North American and UK headline tours in 2012, 2013, and 2014, and headlining 2015’s Warped Main Stage. The band spent years actively developing relationships with its fans through meet’n’greets while on tour (numerous poignant stories told to the band by fans have found their way into PTV’s songs) and extensive social media outreach, all of which has established the band’s massive, passionate and fiercely loyal fan base. The band and its members have accumulated north of 5.5-million Facebook “likes,” as well as 4.5 million Twitter and 4.5 milliion Instagram followers, and 200-million-plus YouTube plays (the “King for a Day” video alone is at more than 64-million views). Collide has been streamed 110 million times on Spotify, while the single “King for a Day” has logged 27-million Spotify plays and the single has been certified Gold. The band has won multiple awards from Alternative Press, Revolver, Kerrang! and Rock Sound.
