Wednesday, August 24, 2016 — In the first 24-hours of its 7/25 MTV premiere, Pierce The Veil’s video for “Circles” received more than 251-million impressions. Today, the band makes available a fun and fast-paced behind the scenes clip of that video. You can check out the behind the scenes video here.
In the clip, Pierce The Veil – Vic Fuentes, Jaime Preciado, Tony Perry and Mike Fuentes – takes viewers on a tour of the set, getting into make-up, taking direction from Drew Russ (who directed the band’s “King For A Day” video which has acculumlated more than 70-million YouTube views), and getting their feet wet as stuntmen.
The “Circles” video is loosely based on the Dan Ackroyd written and directed 1991 feature film “Nothing But Trouble,” and features San Francisco morning radio host and former MTV VJ Matt Pinfield. The “Circles” single is a hair away from the Alternative Top 30 charts and is in rotation on 27 alternative and 22 active rock stations, such as CIMX/Detroit, The Point/St. Louis, WJRR/Orlando, KQQL/Minneapolils, and XTRA/San Diego, as well as SiriusXM, Loudwire Nights and HardDriveXL.
Fresh from the band’s first-ever tour of Australia, Pierce The Veil hit the road here in North America on September 3, headlining their Made To Destroy Tour. Dates are below.

ABOUT PIERCE THE VEIL
Six years ago, Pierce the Veil – Vic Fuentes/rhythm guitar, vocals, Jaime Preciado/bass, Tony Perry/guitar, and Mike Fuentes/drums – 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 4.7 milliion Instagram followers, and 200-million-plus YouTube plays (the “King for a Day” video alone is at more than 68-million views). Collide has been streamed more than 110 million times on Spotify, while the single “King for a Day” has been certified Gold and logged more than 27-million Spotify plays. The band has won multiple awards from Alternative Press, Revolver, Kerrang! and Rock Sound. PTV’s new album, Misadventures, released May 13, debuted at #1 on its Rock, Hard Rock, Alternative and Independent charts and #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 charts, and debuted in the Top 20 in the UK, Mexico, Australia and Canada.
