Virtual Museum: Pierce The Veil
Pierce The Veil

Welcome back! In an effort to cover a variety of genres, I have already created spaces for The 1975 and Brand New. Today we are entering a slightly different world of music and art with the post-hardcore band Pierce The Veil. This progressive band has been at it since 2006 and now have an impressive discography of music under their belt. Also impressive is their contribution to the world of art, so let's take a look.

Lyrics / Album Artwork

I am guilty of sitting and ready PTV lyrics for hours because they are pure poetry and often tell a story. Take the lyrics below from "Dive In" (off of their new phenomenal album Misadventure) "Now I wanna be the tattoo ink / that swims down through the needle in your skin." With a band as instrumentally strong as this one, it is important to take a second to appreciate the songwriting. The instruments are the heart driving each song, but their lyrics are truly the soul giving each one life.

Now 4 full lengths in, there isn't an album artwork that isn't completely gripping. A fan favorite is definitely Collide With The Sky (below) which manages to encompass the entire album in a single image.

Transparent Writing and Recording Process

Whether it be through social media or interviews, PTV have been particularly open about the work that goes into each album. Their most recent album took years to create, and while they left fans in the dark for a while, they are now more than willing to shine light on everything they were doing. For their album Selfish Machine, they did a mini-documentary that brings you right into the studio.

Live Production / Stage Presence

This band has created music that is perfect to escape in through headphones, scream to in your car, but especially to experience live. PTV really puts on a show full of energy that will leave you breathless and speechless. They put a lot of thought into a stage setup that matches their vibe and in the past has even had moving parts. When you're not staring at the lights, set, or confetti, be prepared to make eye contact with one of the bands members who stay fully engaged with the audience.


PTV released a full-fledged documentary in 2013 to account their first world tour. The doc is a virtual adventure and a look into touring that you may not expect.


Before PTV, lead singer Vic Fuentes went to school for graphic design, and that knowledge has certainly paid off, as he has been able to create or approve some high-quality merch. The band also has some incredibly beautiful vinyl variants including coke bottle, white with red splatter, and more.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Things to do in October.


Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween. I love Halloween especially with all the candy and different types of goodies. Halloween is for everyone that enjoys to be a part of this wonderful holiday and also be careful on Halloween as well. It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.

The Cranberries Zombie

Aside from the great hits like "Dreams," "Linger," and "Zombie," you may not know many other songs by "The Cranberries." These three songs are played rather frequently, and it would be hard to imagine someone not recognizing at least one of the three. If you haven't, look them up, and then come back and read this list. But as is the case with many bands, those popular singles only scratch the surface.
