Misadventures – Pierce The Veil

PTV-M.jpg

The highly anticipated album, Misadventures by Pierce the Veil was released on Friday May 13th. That is almost four years since the bands last release. For those of you who don’t know, Pierce the Veil is a hardcore band from San Diego. The band dubbed themselves as the genre of Mexicore being that all the members are Mexican. The band consists of Vic Fuentes (vocals, guitar), Tony Perry (lead guitar), Jaime Preciado (bass), and Mike Fuentes (drums). Although the new album is different from the band’s previous releases the album have a very similar sound to their previous work. The album shows their growth as a band while still keeping the sound that makes this band so unique. The album consists of 11 tracks. The first track to be released was “The Divine Zero”. This track was released over the summer prior to the bands run on the Vans Warped Tour. After the release of that track it took until May for the rest of the album to be released. Many fans were getting angry and thought they were never going to get a new album. Now that the album is finally released all the fans seem to finally be satisfied. Personally, the wait was worth it because it gave the band the time to release a very well thought out album. The lyrics are all very meaningful and hit hard on the emotions of all the members. The track that stands out most is the track “Circles” which is said to be written about the attacks that happened in Paris. Lyrically, it is one of the strongest tracks on the album. Being someone who is quite familiar with all the discography of the band I can see that this album is the strongest and shows the bands growth over the years while still keeping their style. Many bands tend to conform to the standards of music as they get bigger but Pierce the Veil didn’t try to “sell out” with their sound. All in all my favorite track off the album is “Floral & Fading” because of its uniqueness in style. My least favorite track off the album is “Texas is Forever”. To me this track goes a little all over the place with the tune and guitar riffs. Despite that I still enjoy the song. You can really hear all the hard work that went into making this album and each song has its own uniqueness that makes it stand out. Some albums have an extreme sense of unity that make all the tracks sound too similar. Misadventures has a sense of unity without that sameness between the tracks. I think overall I would give this album a 4.5/5. Good job guys on another amazing release.

World Tour – Paramount Long Island NY

A look back to 2014… On November 24th I went to the Pierce the Veil and Sleeping with Sirens, The World Tour. The openers for this show included Beartooth and This Wild Life. Both of those bands are extremely talented. Pierce the Veil and Sleeping with Sirens blew me away. I had never seen either of those bands live before and they sounded perfect. Pierce the Veil started the show and sang hits such as Bulletproof Love, Im Low on Gas and You Need a Jacket, and of course King for a Day featuring Kellin Quinn of Sleeping with Sirens. King for a Day was the last song on the Pierce the Veil set allowing for a perfect lead into the Sleeping with Sirens set. Sleeping with Sirens opened with a new track, Kick Me. They sang other songs such as Roger Rabbit, If you Can’t Hang, and Do it Now Remember it Later. All in all the show was fantastic. I even managed to get some fairly decent photos with the point and shoot I brought to the show. The energy from the audience made the show that much better. If you ever get the chance to see any of those bands live I highly recommend you do so.
