Pierce The Veil Gear Up For Tour With ChiodosCurrently wrapping up tour dates with Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Equal Vision recording artist Pierce The Veil will be hitting the road for a handful of dates with labelmates Chiodos in support of their recently released debut A Flair for the Dramatic. In addition, these SoCal natives will be performing at The San Diego Music Awards to be held at Viejas Concerts In The Park on September 17th. Pierce the Veil are also nominated for "Best Alternative Album" by the San Diego Music Academy.

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.
