The Kerrang! verdict on the 50 albums that shaped 2023.
The organisation "works to make dreams come true to children living with terminal or life-threatening illness", while Vic says his plan is to expand its influencing using his sizeable platform.
"I love being a part of this foundation, because it’s so tangible and real," Vic enthuses. "It's amazing that we actually get to see – in person – the faces of the people who we are trying to help. I'm excited to join forces with Scottie Somers and the entire Living The Dream Foundation team to continue their mission of inspiring hope and positivity in the lives of these people who need and deserve it most."
Scottie Somers, Founder and Co-Chairman of Living The Dream Foundation, adds: "Vic came into the picture in the most natural way: as an artist that cared, showed empathy towards, and did all that he could do to put smiles on the faces of our Living The Dream Foundation guests. Many guests would request to meet Vic and Pierce The Veil around the world, and evolved when Vic expressed a greater interest in doing more to help the mission. Several years after working together, I invited him to come on as an ambassador. These were just stepping stones to get to where we're at today with Vic as CEO and Co-Chairman. He brings a wealth of industry knowledge, leadership skills, and great energy to our foundation. Because of this alliance, we couldn't be happier. We will only continue to get stronger."
Fantastic work, guys.
Of course, in addition to his new role with Living The Dream, Vic is also working on a new PTV record; in September 2018, the band tweeted that they "promise we’re working on something really special" for fans, while the frontman said back in July of that same year that they were, "On the beautifully unpredictable journey to album five."
