It's as simple as this: post hardcore fans are going to be in post hardcore heaven when this tour comes to town! And it's going to be coming to towns all over the world.
Rockstar Energy Drink has done it again, this time bringing together two of the most energetic and compelling forces on the hardcore music scene today: Sleeping with Sirens and Pierce the Veil. This "World Tour" will be the first time Sleeping with Sirens and Pierce the Veil share the stage again since their completely sold out Collide With The Sky 2012 tour.
The Sleeping with Sirens / Pierce the Veil World Tour will be a five-month long, multi-leg, co-headline world tour with Pierce the Veil and Sleeping with Sirens alternating the closing spot on the bill.
"Our fans inspired us to create this tour, so that makes it extra special, and very meaningful for us," explained Pierce the Veil's lead vocalist, Vic Fuentes, in a press release. "Doing a world tour is something that not a lot of bands get to do in a lifetime, so we plan on making these shows the best we've ever done. We can't wait to see you all there!"
Sleeping with Sirens' singer Kellin Quinn added, "It's been awhile since either Sleeping with Sirens or Pierce The Veil have toured, and I think it's truly special to travel the world together. So to do a tour this long that hits so many countries? What more could you ask for? It'll be insane, so don't miss out!"
The World Tour will kick off Nov. 5 with an 19+ date U.S. trek, with more shows sure to be added, before invading the rest of the planet. Beartooth and This Wild Life will support on all of the fall dates.
A little about the bands on this tour:
Pierce the Veil
San Diego's Pierce the Veil's 2012 debut release, Collide With The Sky, hit the atmosphere at No. 12 on Billboard's Top 200 chart. Already having sold nearly a quarter-million copies in the U.S. alone, the music video for their song, "King for a Day" (featuring Sleeping with Sirens' Kellin Quinn, by the way), has racked-up an eye-popping 32-million YouTube views. Pierce the Veil swept the Alternative Press Readers Poll taking home awards for Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Live Band of the Year, Cover Art of the Year, Music Video of the Year, Best Band Merch, Best Drummer, and Best Bassist of the year! Pierce the Veil's forthcoming album is expected for release early 2015.
Sleeping With Sirens
Sleeping With Sirens' more recent album, 2013's Feel, debuted at No. 3 on Billboard's Top 200 chart. They've entertained the largest crowds each night on the main stage at Warped Tour for the past two years as well as selling out numerous headlining tours worldwide. Named Alternative Press' Artist of the Year in 2013, Sleeping with Sirens was nominated in four categories for the Alternative Press Music Awards this year, including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year.
Beartooth & This Wild Life
Ohio's hardcore Beartooth was called by Kerrang as "the world's best new band," and Rolling Stone named them the "New Artist You Need To Know" for the month of June. Southern California's This Wild Life's debut release Clouded made huge waves in the first week of its release ranking in at the No. 1 Top New Artist, No. 1 Top Alternative New Artist, No. 49 Digital Album, and the No. 17 Independent Album on Billboard's charts.
For hardcore lovers, this is a tour that is not to be missed.
