Pierce The Veil Leaves Roseland Theater In Pieces

Pierce The Veil

Known for their unbridled showmanship, Pierce The Veil endeavors to out-do themselves with every stage performance they put on. Vic Fuentes (vocals/guitar), Mike Fuentes (drums), Tony Perry (guitar), and Jaime Preciado (bass) are absolutely passionate about the work they do, and it shows. This explains why Pierce The Veil has been nominated for, and won, handfuls of awards including Band of the Year, Best Liveband, Most Dedicated Fans, and many others. They’re one of the only still-active bands that have had zero member turn over during their entire career, which I speculate is due to their undeniable chemistry. 2014 was hugely successful for PTV, wrapping up the year by co-headlining, with Sleeping With Sirens, the first leg of “The World Tour,” presented by Rockstar Energy Drink. This year, they are out of the gates running, traveling the US with the second leg of their three-leg world tour (tour dates listed below).

The stage at Portland’s Roseland Theater was obfuscated by a massive monochromatic curtain that was adorned with a silhouette of a female figure that can be found in the artwork for their most recent album Collide With The Sky. The screen dropped and stage mounted cannons doused the crowd with confetti. The CO2 jets, confetti cannons, and impressive stage lights were outshined by Pierce The Veil’s incredible stage presence, energy, and interaction with the crowd. The first half of PTV’s set was electrifying. They brought on a change of pace when the band’s frontman, Vic Fuentes took the stage, accompanied by only an acoustic guitar, to perform an acoustic rendition of their heart-churning anthem “I’m Low on Gas and You Need a Jacket”. Bringing the energy back up, Vic selected a fan from the crowd and brought her on stage to serenade her with their song of longing and loss “Bulletproof Love”. No arguments can be made about the requited love that PTV has for their fans. Their set consisted of an intriguing mix pulled from their entire discography, seeming to sum up the repertoire of songs they’ve produced thus far in anticipation of their fourth album that is rumored to be released this year.

I was excited about the prospect of experiencing Pierce The Veil live again because they make it a point to over-deliver. In almost a decade of being active, they have not compromised an ounce of effort that has been put into their live performances, and I am eagerly waiting for the chance to watch them again.
