‘Misadventures’, the fourth and long-awaited album by San Diego’s Pierce the Veil, is out now.
‘Misadventures’ had a midweek of number 6 in the UK charts as well as currently number 1 on the Itunes Rock chart. New single ‘Circles’ was Radio1’s track of the day yesterday as well as their rock show session airing last night.
The album’s release is met with the band on the covers of magazines like Alternative Press and Kerrang!, features on RollingStone.com, in Revolver, Outburn, Rock Sound, New Noise and more. Early reviews have been glowing: “‘Misadventures’ has proudly claimed the belt as Pierce the Veil’s best offering to date.”/Kerrang!, and from Alternative Press, “Pierce the Veil somehow sound as especially lavish and theatrical as Muse or Queen, but also punk as f*ck.”
In addition, BBC Radio 1 tagged “Circles,” the album’s first single, as “The Hottest Record in the World,” upon its premiere and the influential Vulture.com named it one of the “8 Best Songs of the Week.” In the two weeks that is has been available, “Circles” has been streamed nearly two-million times. Not a bad start for a developing band’s new album.
Misadventures is high-energy rock. Lyrically, the album is a flood of emotions, recently revealed truths and reflections of new realities – the suicide of a past love, the Paris terror attacks, the online intimidation of a girlfriend by crazed fans, self-worth and an individual’s ability to shine, and the challenge of a cunning betrayal.
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. Lead track Texas Is Forever has already had over 1.5 million views.
