The second leg of the co-headliner World Tour with rockers Pierce The Veil and Sleeping with Sirens presented by Rockstar Energy Drink kicks back into gear starting January 23rd in San Diego, CA. They will be supported by PVRIS and Mallory Knox.
“The World Tour” represents the first time PTV and SWS have toured together since Pierce The Veil’s sold-out “Collide With The Sky” 2012 headline tour, and both bands will be releasing brand new albums in tandem with the 2015 dates. “We’re definitely going to be playing new songs on this tour,” said Pierce the Veil’s Vic Fuentes. Their single together, “King For a Day,” one of the singles from Collide With The Sky was just certified GOLD.
Earlier this year, PTV was sequestered for about five months in a New York recording studio, working with Dan Korneff who produced the band’s 2012 critically-acclaimed, award-winning breakthrough, Collide With The Sky. Basic tracks are completed, and the band’s vocalist, Vic Fuentes, is currently finishing up lyrics and vocals. The still untitled album will see a 2015 release (Fearless Records). Said PTV’s bassist Jaime Preciado, “We don’t just play metal or just play punk, or any one kind of music, but we cross and mix different kinds of music to make our own sound. The new music reflects that, it has a little bit of everything, some of it’s heavy, some of it’s fast, it definitely has the Pierce The Veil stamp, but it’s all brand new.” PTV songs speak directly to their fans’ life experiences and challenges, the insecurities, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and dreams that they all share. Songs on the new album will likely reflect the band’s time spent with the fans they’ve met, stories they’ve heard at meet’n’greets and read in letters.
When this tour rolls through a major city near you, we promise that you will not want to miss out. It will be a jam packed show with high energy, old and new music, and live performances you can’t get anywhere else. This will be one of the biggest tours of the years from two of the biggest bands in this scene. PTV’s Collide with the Sky, debuted at #12 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums, was #1 on the Hard Rock, Modern Rock/Alt Albums, and Rock Albums charts, and has sold nearly a quarter-million copies to date. They swept the Alternative Press Readers awards in 2012, winning Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year (“King for a Day”), Live Band of the Year, Cover Art of the year, Music Video of the Year, Best Band Merch, Drummer of the year, and Bassist of the Year. This past Summer, PTV was the night’s biggest winner at the July 21, 2014 Alternative Press Music Awards taking home four “Skully” awards – Best Live Band, Best Bassist, and Best Drummer. Vocalist Vic Fuentes also shared the “Song of the Year” award with All Time Low for his vocals on the track “A Love Like War.” If all of that doesn’t give good enough reason as to why you shouldn’t miss the show, you have my word when I say this show is a must see. If you haven’t jumped on PTV train, then now is your chance!
