San Diego, CA’s PIERCE THE VEIL is thrilled to unveil the music video for their new single “Floral & Fading“. To celebrate the video, the band hosted a special release event in association with Spotify and KROQ at Paramount Drive-In Theatre in Paramount, CA. The band held a Q&A broadcast on Facebook Live for fans worldwide, before an acoustic set and private screening of the video on the drive-in big screen for lucky winners, launching simultaneously with the worldwide premiere of the video online for fans around the world.
The video also had its broadcast premiere with MTV, playing every hour on the hour on MTVU, MTV Live and MTV2. The track is taken from the band’s latest album Misadventures, which debuted at #4 in the Billboard Top 200 last year with 54,000 copies sold in the U.S. in its first week.
“We weren’t really sure what kind of song we were making when we recorded ‘Floral & Fading,'” frontman Vic Fuentes explains. “It was sort of a studio experiment that ended up being one of my favorites on the album. It’s a love song to my girl about ignoring all the internet hate we got when we first started dating and focusing on each other instead.”
Pierce The Veil was recently nominated for Best Underground Alternative Band in the 2017 iHeart Radio Music Awards. Voting is open until February 25 at iHeartRadio.com/awards or through the iHeart Radio app.
Pierce The Veil toured Australia last August with sold out shows that received high praise from the likes of triple j short.fast.loud, Music Feeds, Triple M’s Rubber Room, Blunt and Heavy Mag – who said the band “had a charisma that went to a level no other core band could try and perfect.“
