Collide With The Sky By Pierce The Veil

Release Date: July 17, 2012
Pierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the group was founded by brothers Vic (vocals and guitarist) and Mike Fuentes (percussion) after the disbandment of the group Before Today (formerly Early Times). Other members of the band include Tony Perry (lead guitar) and Jaime Preciado (bassist and backing vocals). Yes, they are all Mexicans. Currently, the band has released three albums: A Flair For The Dramatic, Selfish Machines, and Collide With The Sky.

Collide With The Sky by Pierce The Veil is probably the best album yet. These guys don’t take any steps back, they only move forward with faster beats, different kinds of song structures and of course mind-blowing lyrics. Even the songs that I didn’t think I would like in a million years grew on me and I still find myself singing the lyrics to them. By PTV releasing this album, they’re pretty much telling people, ‘hey! I can relate to you!’. This song is full of fast beats, relatable lyrics, solos, duets, and Pierce The Veil’s special touch.
May These Noises Startle You In Your Sleep is very…Odd. If this song ever is made into a full length song, I don’t think I’m going to like it. It sounds too far away, like someone left the TV on in another room and this song is playing. It’s very odd.
This album is dedicated to their fans. I like that because people need to know (not just subconsciously) that people do understand how they feel. Songs like Hold On Till May, Tangled In The Great Escape, and One Hundred Sleepless Nights are about broken relationships that you wish could have worked out. The First Punch and King For A Day are songs about moving on because you know you deserve to. Another thing that I like about this album is that there are solos and duets! In the beginning of The First Punch and in the middle of Bulls In The Bronx. Their Mexican background really comes out in Bulls In The Bronx which I like since they’re putting their roots right into their music. I think that King For A Day is the only song on this album that has a duet between the guitar and the bass. Just by listening to the guitarists and bassist, you can tell that the chords aren’t easy to play which keeps the songs interesting. Now, onto the duets between vocalists. Kellin Quinn and Vic Fuentes just fit. Their voices and singing styles fit so well that the transitions between the voices is smooth. Tangled In The Great Escape with Jason Butler fits. The band chose vocalists that would fit really well with the music, no tension, just comfortable.
Overall, go buy this album (or try to win it here!) I recommend this for anyone who likes rock, post-hardcore, and punk. Not only does this album have everything that makes a great album, but it also has soul. Albums are a lot like books, and every song tells it own mini story that perfectly fits as a whole. I don’t think this band is capable of taking steps back with their music. Currently, I am in love with these songs- Hell Above, One Hundred Sleepless Nights, I’m Low On Gas And You Need A Jacket, and The First Punch.
