    Pierce The Veil

    Rock

    "'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."
     
    Right now, Pierce the Veil are at their most raw, crackling with urgency and immediacy. Never predictable, always engaging, Pierce the Veil continue to soar on the strength of highly potent energy, rich musicality, and a scrappy sense of authentic exuberant ambition that's frankly unrivaled. The aforementioned Fuentes, guitarist Tony Perry, and bassist Jaime Precadio put volatile, angsty, confessional emotions into the music, which is why their songs resonate with so many. "No matter where the band performs, fans will show up," wrote Loudwire. "When you see Pierce The Veil live, you'll understand why."
     
    PTV's evolution from album to album is nothing less than stunning. The early buzz generated by A Flair for the Dramatic (2007) made its follow-up one of the most anticipated albums of 2010. Selfish Machines shot to No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. The Chicago Tribune saluted Collide with the Sky for its "post-hardcore punk with more than a few nods to Queen." They became a true arena act on Misadventures, selling out huge venues without losing the intimate connection with their fans.

     Pierce the Veil have long cemented their status as one of the most exciting and relevant acts in their genre — by constantly evolving.

    Dragged Under

    Alternative Metal

    Dragged Under are pushing to be a voice for the fed up.
    The people who want to live and let live, the ones
    who have had enough of people telling them what
    to think, who to be and what they should believe.

    They want to make it known that they’re not here to
    make you like them. There is a passion for change
    in our world, and Dragged Under aim to lead us in to
    the era of self-discovery, introspection and following our
    own paths wherever they lead. From the musical epicenter
    of Seattle, and across The World, Dragged Under is
    casting a footprint that we rarely see emerge
    so instantaneously.

    Dragged Under released their debut full length,
    “The World Is In Your Way” in early 2020.
    After 10 million streams, charting at #18 on Billboard,
    signing with Mascot Records, touring with The Used and
    being added to regular rotation on SiriusXM Octane the
    band remains hungry. Currently deep into writing their
    follow up to TWIIYW, the band look forward to lots
    of touring as soon as possible.

    Dead American

    Post-Punk

    Dead American, a five-piece group out of Southern California, began as a project influenced by the desire to tap into the nostalgic sound of 2000s post-hardcore. The members – Cove Reber (vocals), Chad Rexton (guitar), Josh Latham (bass, vocals), and Kyle Rosa (drums) found themselves with songs that “sound like a band from an earlier time but with a modern twist”; thus, their debut album, ‘New Nostalgia,’ was born. The members are all students of the Warped Tour Era, which is why the band takes influence from artists such as Underoath, My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail, Taking Back Sunday, and New Found Glory, but gives them a modern twist.
    With the intention of not wanting to sound too digitized, the guys went into the studio utilizing producer Fred Archambault’s keen ear for live takes and his ability to capture the true essence of the band’s talents. Fred was essential in keeping the nostalgic vibe, Dead American believes the album would have sounded too modern without Fred’s input. “This is us,” Chad said. “There’s no bullshit or trying to make it sound any different other than what you’d get in a live setting.”
    Having released just one EP before this album, the band was excited for the opportunity to have more freedom to voice their frustrations through writing. ‘New Nostalgia’ is a set of 13 songs that combines the collective frustrations of the group with topics ranging from relationship struggles to societal issues. When listening, it’s clear that the band was not trying to fit any “acceptable” molds and were simply writing openly after accessing how they were feeling in the moment. The laidback personalities of the band members shine through and demonstrate how this band truly does whatever they want in their creative process.
    ‘New Nostalgia’ blends energetic and hard-hitting post-hardcore with little hints of more modern elements and sounds. While frustration is the driving point behind the lyrics and themes of the record, Cove can invoke a wide range of emotions in the listener due to his clever wording and ability to make a specific topic emotionally relatable to anyone. “Reina’s Song,” a calmer track on the album, touches on the heaviness of overdosing and the depth of watching a loved one suffer as their addiction takes over. It’s a heart-wrenching and thought-provoking switch off from the aggressive remainder of the songs.
    You can hear the band’s pride and sense of ownership while listening to ‘New Nostalgia’, which the guys do not take for granted. Cove mentioned, “Every word on this record is ours; it’s no one else’s. I’ve never been able to say everything I need to say, and this record gave me an outlet to do it.” Chad added on, “Life sucks a lot of the time but there’s always some good to come from the shit. We’re all a lot more alike than we think. From the shit, you get this weird, beautiful art-thing that is this record. This is a celebration of all of us going through the shit. Anyone can get through it, so let’s be mad together. We’re all mad about the same shit.”
