hmv.com presents... Albums Of 2015: #21 Pierce The Veil
Every day during January we’re going to be previewing the albums that are going to be hitting the shelves in 2015. Most will definitely come out, some probably will, and some we really hope finally see the light of day (we’re looking at you Adele…). Today we anticipate the return of arena rockers in waiting Pierce The Veil...
A little background…
If 2012’s Collide With The Sky (which you can preview on the right of the page) was Californian hardcore types Pierce The Veil’s breakthrough record, then their fourth album could well be the one that turns them into arena fillers.
At the end of their exhaustive tour in support of Collide With The Sky, the band had sold over 120,000 copies of the album, played main stages at festivals across the world and started selling out venues with crowds numbering in the many thousands.
With a number of big tours already confirmed, 2015 looks set to be a big year for Vic Fuentes and his band, so what can we expect from their forthcoming fourth album?
What It's Called?
No word on this yet. It’s likely to be something inspiring and powerful though, they go in for that sort of thing.
What Will It Sound Like?
All the pre-album interviews are gone out with the same message, no radical changes of direction, no dubstep or electronics thrown in, just doing what they already do, but bigger and better.
Who's Producing It? Are There Any Big-Name Guests?
The band have reunited with Dan Koneff, who helped them scale new heights on Collide With The Sky.
They love a guest spot, they had four singers on their last album, including Letlive’s Jason Butler and Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn, but, as yet, no guests are confirmed to take part.
One thing they do have though is some new co-writers, with both New Found Glory axeman Chad Gilbert and A Day To Remember’s Tom Denney assisting them with songwriting for the album.
Will It Really Come Out This Year? And When?
For sure, according to reports, it’s pretty much done and given the amount of touring the band already have booked in (including a co-headline UK run with Sleeping With Sirens in March and April), you’d expect a spring release.
