"Oh my god! What a way to celebrate 10 years of our band being together," celebrated the band.

Misadventures, Pierce The Veil’s fourth full-length, released May 13, 2016 via Fearless Records. Produced by Dan Korneff, it debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

Three years in the making, the record was a labor of love and mania for the San Diego quartet, reconciling frontman/guitarist Vic Fuentes’ need to get the exact sound in his head out into the world. Compromise and deadlines be damned!
