More on Pierce The Veil
In September, the frontman took to Instagram to give fans an update about his life and the band’s next album.
In the post, he revealed that he moved to Seattle to get some inspiration.
“Felt the urge to get away and go somewhere that inspires me so I packed my truck with my recording gear and drove from San Diego to Seattle. Been living up here for a few weeks writing songs and going to shows,” the post began.
“I am happy and excited for the next chapter and to be playing music on stage with my brothers again. Album #5 is getting closer and closer each day and we can’t fucking wait.”
