Pierce The Veil
#334 – March 2016
Adventures with Pierce The Veil; strings attached to the Used and Sleeping With Sirens; game changing with the Word Alive, Hands Like Houses.
PIERCE THE VEIL
To say PTV have been through some Misadventures is the understatement of the century. With Vic Fuentes racing up and down both coasts chasing the perfect lyrics while the rest of the band patiently provide support, it’s no wonder that the long (long, long)-awaited album is ready to be legendary.

HANDS LIKE HOUSES
The Aussie rockers expected the recording of their new record to be just as painless as their previous one. Instead, they had to confront an ever-expanding list of issues and band baggage. The result: their best batch yet.

SLEEPING WITH SIRENS
When you have some of the best live production in the metalcore world, what can you do to keep people guessing at shows? If you’re SWS, it means stripping it all back to acoustic guitars and letting your fans take the lead.

THE WORD ALIVE
The metalcore masters have been grinding it out in their offseason, creating a whole new persona around what they wanted their band to be. With the help of a California vacation and a few gritty studio sessions, TWA are ready to show their dark side.
