Pierce The Veil recently talked with Yahoo about their upcoming album - tentatively out in summer - and touring. The band played 280 shows last year.
We’ve always admired bands that have progressed naturally from one album to the next. So we aim to do that ourselves. We try to become better in every aspect — songwriting, playing, lyrics without changing too much — so this record is going to have all the elements we like in our music. There’ll the fast stuff, the punk stuff, the heavy stuff, the midtempo songs. Hopefully it will come out this year and we’ll hit the ground running.
