Pierce The Veil Begin Touring In Support of Album

 
PIERCE THE VEIL wrapped up a year of constant touring in 2007 and show no signs of slowing down as they kick off 2008 with tour plans that extend through the end of the summer.  With a workload like this, it’s easy to see why Alternative Press has recently named PIERCE THE VEIL one of the 100 Bands To Know In ’08.


Before taking to the road, the band will shoot a video for their single – as chosen by their fans in an online poll – “YEAH BOY AND DOLL FACE”, in Los Angeles with director Nate Weaver (Static-X “Dirthouse”, Jealous Sound “The Fold Out”, Russell Simmons “I’m Not A Model”).

On the road, the band find themselves in the coveted support slot for Emery’s national headlining tour which kicks off January 29th in Nashville, TN and wraps up March 22nd in Greenville, SC. As Cities Burn and Mayday Parade will also be supporting the tour. 

Shortly after, PIERCE THE VEIL will be appearing at Bamboozle Left on April 6th in Irvine, CA – not too far from the band’s hometown of San Diego, CA.  Other confirmed performers include My Chemical Romance, All American Rejects, and Paramore.

The band will be packing up the RV again – with lots of sunscreen – as they take to the Hurley Stage on this summer’s entire Vans Warped Tour. 

PIERCE THE VEIL will be continuing to support their 2007 debut, A FLAIR FOR THE DRAMATIC, recorded with producer Casey Bates (Chiodos, Gatsby’s American Dream) and written/recorded entirely by brothers VIC FUENTES (vocals, guitar) and MIKE FUENTES (drums).  The album has received an abundance of praise since its release; says Outburn, “We’ve been there, done that with the screamo thing… Yet, Pierce The Veil manages to take their influences and fondness for screamo’s vocal styling and hardcore’s hurried rhythms and tones it down with more melodic harmonies.”  Alternative Press advises the band, in regards to the song title “I’D RATHER DIE THAN BE FAMOUS”: “Be careful what you wish for… especially if you keep writing songs this good.”
