The San Diego band has just shared the lyric video for the brand new song “Pass the Nirvana.”
Pierce the Veil, which Rolling Stone once described as “hyperactive, progressive post-hardcore,” serve up a new track full of fuzzy guitars, massive melodic hooks, and the bands distinct emotional heart. “Pass the Nirvana” marks Pierce the Veil’s first new music since 2016.
It was worth the wait — and then some.
It is destined to become a fan favourite that the Pierce the Veil faithful will scream the lyrics to at their live shows.
“‘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.”
Beloved San Diego band Pierce the Veil will make their long-awaited return to the UK later this year this winter- their first UK tour in six years and is completely sold out.
The tour kicks off 1st December and runs through to 10th December and will see them do two nights at the prestigious O2 Forum, London.
Support comes from Against The Current and Caroles Daughter.
