Pierce The Veil will be releasing their first album in seven years in 2023, and that is an incredible sentence to write.
Following their return to the limelight earlier this year, Pierce The Veil have announced the details of their brand new full-length album.
It’s going to be called ‘The Jaws Of Life’ and will be dropping on February 10 2023 via Fearless Records. It’s their first full body of work since 2016’s ‘Misadventures’.
Vocalist Vic Fuentes had this to say about what the album represents:
“This album has truly brought us closer than we’ve ever been. It was extremely difficult for us to be off the road and apart for so long. We’ve never missed anything more than playing music together and never had such an strong appreciation for recording, touring, and simply being in the same room together than we do now. The Jaws of Life is about how life can sink its teeth into you and try to devour you. The negativity in the world and within your mind can be a vicious thing. We’re extremely grateful for this record, our fans, and the opportunity to play live music again.”

You can also hear a new song. That’s ‘Emergency Contact’, a beautiful, heart-wrenching, vital piece of slow-burning sentiment.
Vic had this to say about it:
“There’s so much desperation underlying the lyrics of this song. It talks about a relationship where one person is ready to take things to the next level while the other is still unsure. One person is begging the other to either move forward or to let them out because being stuck in the middle is torture
“I wrote this song in Seattle at Mike Herrera from MXPX’s home studio. He let me live there for a couple of months while working on the record. I love writing in Seattle because it gives me all of the ’90s grunge rock vibes. Plus, it rains all the time, and I love the rain.”
