Pierce The Veil

#296

This month, we get the dish behind cover stars Pierce The Veil, Texas Is The Reason, Motionless In White, the Bronx and Black Veil Brides, as well as our favorite rock couple valentines.

 

PIERCE THE VEIL
There’s no limit to what some people would sacrifice to be in a successful band. But this beloved San Diego unit knows full well everything hinges on the support and love of family and fans, alike.

LOVERS ROCK!

Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us, so what better time to profile some of our scene’s favorite couples and pick their brains on how they juggle rock with romance? If that’s not enough, we also share memorable V-Day stories from tons of your favorite bands. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll probably cringe a few times, too.

 

 

Features >>>

 

 

THE BRONX

The Los Angles wiseguys took off their mariachi suits long enough to throw down a new rock record. Hell, yeah!

 

 

 

 

 

 

MOTIONLESS IN WHITE
His favorite bands may have broken up, but nothing is going to crack Chris Motionless’ creative—and personal—conviction.

 

 

 

 

 

TEXAS IS THE REASON
Unlike history’s biggest bands, these first-gen post-hardcore mavericks have reconvened for all the right reasons.

 

 

 

 

 

BLACK VEIL BRIDES
Last year, Andy Biersack nearly lost his heart and his aesthetic vision. He ended up with a new plan, a hard-rockin’ alter ego and a new haircut.
