ABOUT PIERCE THE VEIL:
Six years ago, Pierce the Veil was playing small clubs and side stages at Warped and other music festivals.  With the 2012 release of their album Collide with the Sky, PTV exploded, selling out North American and UK headline tours in 2012, 2013, and 2014, and headlining 2015’s Warped Main Stage.  The band spent years actively developing relationships with its fans through meet’n’greets while on tour (numerous poignant stories told to the band by fans have found their way into PTV’s songs) and extensive social media outreach, all of which has established the band’s massive, passionate and fiercely loyal fan base.  The band and its members have accumulated north of 5.5-million Facebook “likes,” as well as 4.5 million Twitter and 4.7 milliion Instagram followers, and 200-million-plus YouTube plays (the “King for a Day” video alone is at more than 68-million views).  Collide has been streamed more than 110 million times on Spotify, while the single “King for a Day” has been certified Gold and logged more than 27-million Spotify plays.  The band has won multiple awards from
Alternative PressRevolverKerrang! and Rock Sound.  PTV’s new album, Misadventures, released May 13, debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 charts, #1 on its Rock, Hard Rock, Alternative and Independent charts, and debuted in the Top 20 in the UK, Mexico, Australia and Canada.
