Over the past week, the guys from Pierce the Veil have released teasing images on social media from the set of their recently completed music video. On Friday, Feb. 10, the California-founded band finally unveiled the completed clip for "Floral & Fading," the latest single off their recently released record Misadventures.
The music video, which looks like it was somewhat inspired by Weezer's "Buddy Holly," begins with a couple parked outside of a neighborhood bowling alley. The scene soon shifts to inside the alley where several "good kids" seem to be spending their Friday evening hanging out and playing several rounds of bowling. The manager is then heard over the speaker system, telling all the kids to "come over here" because some band named "Pierce the Veil" was going to put on a show for them.
On a makeshift stage, the guys from PTV appear, decked out in some awkward and weird 50s attire including combed and gelled hair, polyester pants, and sweater vests. The kids start to gather around the band as they begin to play the song. At first, it appears like it's going to be a slow and non-eventful evening until two guys bump into each other on the dance floor. Instead of shaking it off, a fight ensues. Gone is the quiet slow dancing, and a mosh pit begins to form in the middle of the bowling alley.
Check out the complete video for "Floral & Fading" above.
"Floral & Fading" is featured on Pierce the Veil's recently released record, Misadventures. In support of the 2016 release, the band will embark on their "Rest in Space" tour with Falling in Reverse and Crown the Empire.
