Pierce The Veil Return, Share New Lyric Video For ‘Pass The Nirvana’

Pierce the Veil are back.

The San Diego band has just shared the lyric video for the brand new song “Pass the Nirvana.”

“‘Pass the Nirvana’ is about the many horrible traumas that the youth of America have endured over the past few years,” says frontman Vic Fuentes about the song’s powerful, relatable, and topical subject matter. “COVID, no proms, no graduations, an insurrection, school shootings. The list goes on. Their lives have been tossed around like clothes in a dryer, as the tensions within our country have infiltrated our own homes, friends, and families. To me, the song represents a euphoric detachment from all of that anxiety and stress and about finding some form of peace or nirvana.”

Check out the lyric video for ‘Pass the Nirvana’ below.

Pierce The Veil Confirm Mike Fuentes Left The Band In 2017

The post-hardcore foursome Pierce The Veil have settled the confusion which surrounds their band at the moment. The now threesome band confirmed that ex-drummer Mike Fuentes left the band back in 2017.

Back in November 2017, Mike was the subject to allegations of sexual misconduct, which resulted in Fuentes stepping down from his duties but it was unclear if his departure was temporary or permanent.

This confusion only rose more when the band uploaded a home performance of the track, ‘Hold On Till May’ via Youtube where Mike appeared on drums.

Now though, Vic Fuentes responded to a fan on Instagram asking about the drummer’s status in the band, confirming that he is no longer a part of Pierce The Veil.

Vic also confirmed that the band are working on their fifth record, which will be a follow-up to their 2016 effort, ‘Misadventures’.

Is New Pierce The Veil Music On The Way?

Pierce The Veil fans be aware! There’s some news incoming!

There’s been nothing but quiet from the Pierce The Veil camp recently, but now, something is coming! Vic, their frontman confirmed something new is coming.

He shared: “Hey everyone – I’ve got a big announcement coming your way soon! In addition too working on a new Pierce The Veil record, I’ve also been working on something big that I can’t wait to show you guys. This has been life-changing for me, and I want all of you guys to be a part of it as well. So check back soon, love ya.”

Mike Fuentes Steps Away From Pierce The Veil Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Following the allegations surrounding Mike Fuentes, Pierce The Veil have published a Facebook post in which he has decided to take a break so this doesn’t affect the band or fans and community in a negative way.

The band will also be withdrawing from their scheduled UK tour with All Time Low.

 

Mike’s statement is as follows:
“I’m of course aware of the allegation made about me from almost ten years ago, and I cannot begin to describe how difficult and disturbing this entire situation has been for everyone involved. I do not take this allegation lightly and would never downplay it. I have empathy for any human being who has experienced abuse or mistreatment in their lives, and I am inspired to see so many come forward and speak out about it.”

“No one should have to suffer in silence, and I am thankful that the world is finally starting to listen. I also want to assure you that I have never intentionally manipulated or abused anyone in my life. That is not the person I am, how I was raised, or the type of behavior that I condone.”

“I strongly believe in the empowerment of abuse victims, so if I have ever made anyone feel like they are less than equal, I am sincerely sorry.”

“I love playing music more than anything on earth, and I am constantly humbled by the support of our fans. I do not want the allegation surrounding me to negatively affect the reputation or future of the band, or to break the bond and trust that we have created with our fans over the years.”

“So, I have decided to take a break and step away from my position in the band in hopes that this will allow my band mates and fans to continue focusing on the music and message that Pierce The Veil stands for. Though I am far from perfect, I do have a moral compass and try to stand up for what is right. While away from the band, I will continue to work hard to live my life in that way.”

Music Videos 13/10/17

Hey everyone, apologies this is coming a little late! My place had a problem with its internet connection and so I was unable to upload this yesterday as I had originally intended.

But, let’s kick things off! First up is Canadian Hardcore band; Counterparts. This is off their recently released fifth record, ‘You’re Not You Anymore’ and this is a fantastically written track, Swim Beneath My Skin.

 

This next trio has just come off their UK tour and dropped the video for this track recently. This comes from their soon-to-be-released fourth record, Hold On To Your Heart. Here’s Daydream.

Now, let’s turn our attention to a lesser known band. This band have recently self-released this track from their E.P, Shadows Of You, here is Echoic with Shadows Of You.

Moving onto Don Broco next with a video that matches their cheekiness alongside the fact it’s all a part of their next huge sound! Here’s Stay Ignorant.

 

This next video comes from a band who likes to shock with style. He may have had to postpone a few dates the other week but this video will show he’s always ready to go, especially is he has Johnny Depp alongside him. This is Marilyn Manson with Say10.

 

Now, let’s take things to the Welsh isles for a fantastic band, The Dirty Youth. They’ve been a little quiet recently but this is the reason for it. There’s no news if it’s just a single or part of a larger concept but, we’re just glad they’re back. Here’s Hurricane.

 

Now, we’re going to turn the noise up a fair bit with this next band. It’s the first bit of material they’ve released since the band dropped their full-length album ‘Smile’ last year. This is expected to feature on their next record which if anything is to go by, will sound huge! This is Cane Hill with ‘Too Far Gone’.

 

Just like every great show, they slow things down to get ot that emotion, it’s what I’m doing here. This is With Confidence and their final track off Better Weather.  According to lead singer Jayden Seeley, the track is about “our video for ‘Waterfall’ is an exploration of technology’s effect on the modern relationship”. It’s an immensely powerful track meshed together with the visuals to match, this is ‘Waterfall’.

 

Penultimate track time! This comes from a band who have been teasing this music video for a week or two now. This is Pierce The Veil with their newest single, “Today I Saw The While World.

 

Lastly, this is a band who have been away for a while making music. Their last track, Play dropped about two months ago, reclaiming their fanbase to the hard-hitting band they once were. On Tuesday, they were invited to Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World to introduce this track and announce their second studio record, ‘Knowing What You Know Now’ would drop January 26th 2018. This is the Bingley based band known only as Marmozets with Habits.
