PIERCE THE VEIL, who rocketed to success with their 2012 release Collide With The Sky, have been sequestered at Dan Korneff's Sonic Deris Recording Studio in New York writing and recording a brand new album due for a January 2015 release on Fearless Records. As yet untitled, the highly-anticipated release is being produced by Korneff (A DAY TO REMEMBER, PARAMORE) who worked with the band on Collide.

Vocalist Vic Fuentes began working on ideas as early as late last year and began writing new material in earnest this Spring. He and the band - Mike Fuentes (drums), Tony Perry (guitar) and Jaime Preciado (bass) - started preproduction in May in their newly-renovated San Diego home studio. In June, with 11 songs written, the band headed to New York to begin recording; nine of those songs are earmarked for the new album, and the band has written two more since.

Said Vic about the sessions, "We try to stay focused on writing and recording songs that we're happy with, that we like, songs that will be fun to play live and that our fans will want to sing along with, songs that offer a little something different, but are all still very much PTV songs."

The past two years have been a whirlwind for PIERCE THE VEIL. On July 22, 2012, Collide With The Sky debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart as well as #1 on the Top Hard Rock chart, the Top Modern Rock chart, the Top Alternative Albums chart, and the Top Rock Albums chart. MTV named the band a Buzzworthy Breakthrough Artist, and to date, Collide has sold nearly a quarter-million copies in the U.S. alone. That same year, PTV performed on the Main Stage for the entire Vans Warped Tour, then headlined the sold out, 34-major market date "Collide With the Sky" U.S. tour. In 2013, they co-headlined (with ALL TIME LOW) the sold out "Spring Fever" North American tour, and then played a massive run with A DAY TO REMEMBER. PTV went on to sweep the Alternative Press Readers Poll, taking 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 (for "King For A Day" which has racked up an astounding 32-million YouTube views), Best Band Merch, Best Drummer and Best Bassist of the Year. "King For A Day" was awarded "Best Video of the Year" at the Kerrang! Awards, and earlier this year, the band's critically-acclaimed documentary, "This Is A Wasteland", picked up a Revolver Golden God statue for Best Film & Video. Most recently, PTV received seven nominations at the first annual Alternative Press Music Awards, taking home three "Skullys" - the most wins for the night - for Best Bassist, Best Drummer, and Song of the Year (ALL TIME LOW's "A Love Like War" with Vic on vocals).

Leading up to the new album's release, PTV will co-headline 21 U.S. dates, the first leg of "The World Tour" a five-month, multi-leg global trek, with SLEEPING WITH SIRENS. Confirmed dates for the first leg are below.
