Official press release:
The San Diego band just shared the lyric video for their brand new song “Pass the Nirvana.”
Pierce the veil, which Rolling Stone once described as “hyperactive, progressive post-hardcore,” features a new track full of fuzzy guitars, massive melodic hooks, and PTV’s distinct emotional heart. “Pass the Nirvana” is quite the riff-fest and marks Pierce the Veil’s first new music since 2016. It was worth the wait — and more. It’s destined to become a fan favorite that the PTV faithful will be shouting the lyrics to at their concerts.
Singer Vic Fuentes shares his thoughts on the powerful, relatable and topical subject of the song:
Pass the Nirvana’ is about the many horrific traumas America’s youth have endured in recent years. COVID, no proms, no degrees, an insurrection, school shootings. The list continues. Their lives have been tossed about like clothes in a dryer, as tensions within our country seep into our own homes, friends and families. For me the song represents a euphoric detachment from all that anxiety and stress and finding some form of peace or nirvana.
Pierce the Veil will also be get back on the road this fall with I prevail and fit for a king.
