BILLBOARD has debuted PIERCE THE VEIL's behind-the-scenes footage on setof their video for "Floral & Fading." (Go to Billboard to check it out).
"Have you ever wondered to yourself, 'When was the first mosh pit ever?' How and when did it actually get invented? Or when did someone first whip out a lighter at a rock show?," Vic Fuentes explains exclusively to Billboard. "We decided to answer all of these questions in one single music video. At a bowling alley in 1969, we unveiled as many iconic rock moments as we could possibly cram into one place."
The video premiered February 10 and the track is taken from the band's latest album Misdaventures, which debuted at #4 in the Billboard Top 200 last year with 54,000 copies sold in the U.S. in its first week.
Pierce The Veil was recently nominated for Best Underground Alternative Band in the 2017 iHeart Radio Music Awards. Voting is open until February 25 at iHeartRadio.com/awards or through the iHeart Radio app.
