Bryan Odell, a reporter from Lincoln, Nebraska, conducted an interview with the California-based progressive post-hardcore band PIERCE THE VEIL on June 27 at the Chula Vista, California stop of the Vans Warped Tour. You can now watch the chat below.
PIERCE THE VEIL‘s third album, “Collide With The Sky”, 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.”
“It’s been a long and, in the true sense of the word, epic journey creating this new album,” said PIERCE THE VEIL singer Vic Fuentes. “After a year of working out parts on the road, recording demos on the bus, living in a cabin that we turned into a studio for months at a time, writing while we were overseas in Europe, and not to mention the three months that we spent recording the album in New Jersey, we have literally poured every bit of our collective lives into this record and we cannot wait any longer to show it to you!”

Blending the unique vocal style of Fuentes, incendiary guitar lines and soaring melody, “Collide With The Sky” is an aural exploration that at once both packs a punch, while finding the pockets of calm in the chaos — a talent that has made the band such a refreshingly exhilarating force in the scene.
Having toured with some of the biggest names in the music, including BRING ME THE HORIZON, A DAY TO REMEMBER, OF MICE MEN, THURSDAY and THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, the band tears into a packed tour schedule in support of “Collide With The Sky”, with a full summer on Vans Warped Tour‘s main stage and a U.K. headline tour this fall.
