Pierce the Veil

Who knew that metal bands could be so organized? Hats and hoods off to Pierce the Veil then for jumping in quick with news of their next UK tour.

After issuing their third studio-album back in the summer, many UK fans must have opined their absence from the touring scene considering how well-received "Collide with the Sky" was received. Instead, the band toured North America first as part of the Warped Tour 2012, before hitting these shores in the autumn.

Regardless of the delay, tickets were snapped-up quick for a band who have quietly muscled their way through the alternative metal ranks, knocking out powerful albums that have grown in strength as the founding Fuentes brothers have stamped their mark on the scene. After the near-breakthrough of album number two in 2010 ("Selfish machines") took them to within a whisker of Billboard success, 2012's "Collide with the Sky" has well and truly done the business by hitting #12. You can't blame them for sticking with their home audience, now can you?

But it's the UK that needs to catch up with their American cousins and next year's lengthy spring tour, straight after supporting Metallica in Australia by the way, should see them right. First stop for the tour is Brighton on 15th May 2013, followed by the likes of Portsmouth, Islington, Bristol, Derry and more until Norwich on 5th June.

With upcoming scamps Woe, Is Me in support, you might need to be quick grabbing your tickets from us on Wednesday 28th November at 9AM for the London date, Friday 30th November for the remainder - they won't be hanging around for long. Prices start at £12.
