Pierce The Veil's Vic Fuentes: "I've Got A Big Announcement Coming Your Way Soon"

Vic Fuentes has confirmed a double-whammy of news overnight: not only are Pierce The Veil working on a new record, but he's got something else up his sleeve…

"Hey everyone," the frontman says in a new video. "I’ve got a big announcement coming your way soon! In addition too working on a new Pierce The Veil record, I’ve also been working on something big that I can’t wait to show you guys. This has been life-changing for me, and I want all of you guys to be a part of it as well. So check back soon, love ya."

This is, of course, the first real update we've had regarding potential new music since September 2018, when the band tweeted that they "promise we’re working on something really special" for fans, while Vic said back in July of that same year that they were, "On the beautifully unpredictable journey to album five."

Very interesting…

Whether we get to hear whatever this may be this year or not, there's plenty of good pop-punk stuff to come. Houston trio Waterparks just revealed that they've finished their new record, while a new All Time Low album is in the works, and Sleeping With Sirens will be releasing their full-length, How It Feels To Be Lost, in September via Sumerian Records.

Kerrang! recently caught up with SWS frontman Kellin Quinn to find out more, and the frontman told us of the difference between their new album and Gossip:

“Both the music and the lyrics are really different, but just because we’ve made a very different record to last time doesn’t mean we see Gossip as a failure. That last album was one that came during a period when we hadn’t had any time to stop and focus on ourselves, and I think that was the biggest issue with it. We were thrown into a major- label experience with a lot of people telling us what to do, and I spent a lot of time writing songs with other people instead of sticking to my tribe and trusting our instincts. We felt like we had to deliver something that didn’t truly feel like us, and given the emotional turmoil my life was in at that point, it wasn’t the right record to make. We fought through it, though, and that opened my mind to what this record would ultimately be.

“I don’t feel like I have to go out on a limb to justify or force what we’re doing with How It Feels To Be Lost – this all came very naturally. I’ve written about everything in a very transparent way on this album, to the extent that people who’ve heard it have said, ‘Damn, dude, I love the record, but it makes me wanna give you a hug.’ I want How It Feels To Be Lost to provide that comfort for everyone who can’t express their feelings. That was really important to me, and I think it comes across on the album.”
