Adding to Equal Vision recording artists PIERCE THE VEIL ongoing pre-emptive strike to take over the music world, these four indie rockers have added more tour dates to their 2008 schedule, including a stint on the two-day music festival Bamboozle Left, taking place in Irvine, California on April 5 and 6, 2008. The website for the festival can be found at thebamboozleleft.com.
In addition, the track "I'd Rather Die Than Be Famous" from their debut album A Flair for the Dramatic appears on cross-platform video game Tony Hawk's Proving Ground. Says vocalist/guitarist Victor Fuentes, "It is probably one of the most surreal moments for any band to hear one of their songs on a video game. Sometimes we almost don't even believe it's on there. Everytime the song comes on we all just think it's an iPod playing somewhere else in the room."
As previously announced, Pierce the Veil will be supporting The Devil Wears Prada in Mexico, supporting Emery on their full US tour, and playing the Hurley Stage on the whole Vans Warped Tour 2008. The band rounds out 2007 however with a special hometown show on New Year's Eve at Soma in San Diego (tour dates below).
Having built a solid fan base in the underground SoCal music scene that birthed blink-182, Pinback, As I Lay Dying, and Thrice, among countless others, Pierce The Veil has been making waves into the mainstream with their unique brand of melody and artistic rhythm found on their debut album, A Flair For The Dramatic. With solid critical acclaim from Alternative Press ("Buoyed by shape-shifting, vicious rock underpinnings, Pierce the Veil effortlessly infuse everything from acoustics to electronics in the new assault") to Suburban Horror ("...what every fan wants to hear and what every band wishes they sounded like") to Metal Hammer ("... a well thought-out and effectively executed debut"), Pierce the Veil are prepared to launch their next strike on the road this Fall, constructing upwards from previous tour stints with peers such as Portugal the Man, Poison the Well, Alesana, and Fear Before The March of Flames among others.
Pierce The Veil’s unusual song structures provide the foundation for complex guitar lines and contrasting beautiful / abrasive vocals to mingle and form each and every memorable hook. The undeniable sonic connection between brothers Victor and Michael Fuentes (guitar/vocals and percussion, respectively) jumps out of the crisp-sounding album, which was produced by the up-and-coming producer Casey Bates (Chiodos,Fear Before The March of Flames, Portugal The Man) at his suburban Seattle studios.
