Pierce the Veil, one of the fastest-rising, most electrifying artists on the music scene today, has confirmed the May 13th release date of its hotly-anticipated new album. Misadventures is the follow up to the band’s 2012 breakthrough release Collide with the Sky. Collide with the Sky debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, held the #1 spot on the Rock, Hard Rock, and Modern Rock/Alternative Albums charts, has sold nearly 350,000 copies, and earned the band a Gold single for the track “King for a Day”.
The first single from Misadventures will be “Texas is Forever”, a punk-flavored song that goes back to the band’s roots. It also happens to be the fastest song they’ve ever written. “Texas is Forever” will be released on March 24.
Initial plans were for Misadventures to be released earlier, but touring commitments and the band’s conscious decision to take their time to make the album the very best it could be, set a different course.
The 11 songs on Misadventures find the band dealing with a variety of topics including self-worth and an individual’s ability to shine, the dream of leaving everything behind while you run away with the one you truly love, the challenge of outrunning betrayal, an undefined relationship, and the horror of the 2015 Paris attacks told from a hypothesized point of view. The track listing for Misadventures is as follows:
Texas is Forever
The Divine Zero
Floral & Fading
Phantom Power and Ludicrous Speed
Today I Saw the Whole World
Gold Medal Ribbon
Song for Isabelle
With Pierce the Veil‘s penchant for playing live, expect them to support Misadventures with extensive global touring. The first round of dates will be announced shortly.
