Pierce The Veil and Beartooth have announced a massive Australian tour, with California post-hardcore band Dayseeker along for the ride at all shows.
The tour takes place this July, beginning in Fremantle on Saturday, 22 July, followed by dates in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. General tickets go on sale this Friday, 3 March, at 9 am local time, but if you're after pre-sale tickets, you can access them from here on Wednesday, 1 March.
Earlier this month, Pierce The Veil released their fifth album, The Jaws Of Life. It’s an album that’s outside the band’s post-hardcore and emo vein, instead showcasing a penchant for grunge music, alternative rock and a bit of experimentation.
Last year, Pierce The Veil performed at the inaugural When We Were Young festival in Las Vegas, which celebrated emo and pop-punk music of the 2000s and early 2010s. Of course, Pierce The Veil have come a long way since their Tumblr-famous second and third albums, Selfish Machines (2010) and Collide With The Sky (2012), the latter of which featured the hit single featuring Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn, King For A Day.
“Growing up, we were going through different things, and I wouldn’t change anything,” bassist Jaime Preciado explained. “I love the music we made together; it was like a snapshot in time. We're one of those bands that will always try to play the songs people want to hear.

“It's been such a treat to meet all these amazing people, people that I looked up to growing up… a perfect example was last year, the When We Were Young festival, playing that and having just pretty much every band we've ever played a show with in one place,” he continues, “it’s a testament to how long we've been doing this and what amazing people there are in all these bands. These friendships last a long time."
