“King For A Day”, the new video from the California-based progressive post-hardcore band PIERCE THE VEIL, can be seen below. The clip, which was first revealed on “MTV Buzzworthy”, features the guys’ tongue-in-cheek take on a heist movie.
“We wanted something that mixes ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ with the old-school ’80s heist movies like ‘Point Break’ and ‘Gleaming The Cube’,” said PIERCE THE VEIL vocalist Vic Fuentes. “It was so much fun shooting all the action in a real bank and getting to work with real actors and actresses. Definitely our best video yet!”
“King For A Day” comes off PIERCE THE VEIL‘s third album, “Collide With The Sky”, which sold 27,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 12 on The Billboard 200 chart. Recorded with producers Dan Korneff and Kato Khandwala (MAYDAY PARADE, PARAMORE, A DAY TO REMEMBER), the CD embraces the San Diego quartet’s unique blend of incendiary guitar lines and soaring melodies. The album was tipped by Alternative Press in their rundown of the “Most Anticipated Music Of 2012.”
Following a colossal summer on the main stage of Vans Warped Tour and a U.K. headline run in September, PIERCE THE VEIL will charge into fall to headline the “Rockstar Energy Presents The Collide With The Sky Tour” with direct support from SLEEPING WITH SIRENS, labelmates TONIGHT ALIVE and HANDS LIKE HOUSES.
