Cover shot – PIERCE THE VEIL

Following a sold-out tour of The US, Europe and The UK where they played some of their biggest headline shows to date, San Diego’s Pierce The Veil have unveiled their take on Radiohead’s classic song Karma  Police.  Having already wowed fans with their rendition of the track after recording it for Australia’s triple j for Like A Version, the band have now recorded a studio version. While still infusing their signature style into the iconic single this new interpretation is yet another testament to their musical prowess, giving a fresh new look to the song. 
The band say, “We are products of the 80s and 90s MTV era, so songs like ‘Karma Police’ live deep within our childhood minds. We dug this one up as an opportunity to indulge in something comforting and familiar. Taking inspiration from the memories and emotions the song evokes in us, we created a version that reflects where we come from as a band. We were happy to discover that the song remained haunting and beautiful even when fed through distortion pedals and loud guitars.”

With their seamless fusion of post-hardcore intensity and emotional depth, Pierce The Veil are well-known for giving their fans an unforgettable concert experience. They will criss-cross North America as the direct support for blink-182’s “one more time” tour kicking off on June 20 in Orlando, FL and conclude in Toronto, ON on August 15. The band will also be making a stop at Chicago’s Lollapalooza Festival August 1 – 4.
