Pierce The Veil took to a zoom conference call to talk to fans and perform their Collide With The Sky track “Hold On Till May” in the comfort of their homes, practicing social distancing with an intimate acoustic version of the song.
During the opening of the conference call, Singer Vic Fuentes asked the rest of the band including Jaime Preciado, Tony Perry and Mike Fuentes how quarantine is affecting them. Perry said that he has been golfing on his roof with a makeshift mini-golf course in his backyard, Preciado told fans about his mother and how she is working in a Children’s Hospital that is now accepting adult patients due to the overcrowding of most hospitals and healthcare facilities, Mike Fuentes has been perfecting his drumming talent with his drumkit being set up in a guest bedroom and Vic Fuentes told fans that he has been getting creative and exploring his passions and how excited he is to see what comes from this creative energy.
“We wanted to let you guys know that we are with you through this difficult time,” the band says. “Thank you to our hospital workers, our essential workers, and to everyone fighting to put an end to this pandemic. Our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones or have been affected by the virus. We WILL beat this together. Love you guys so much!”
With the peak of the coronavirus hitting most of the U.S. this week and most states being on lockdown till May 1, the song was more than fitting. Ending the video with some funny outtakes from their recording process of the zoom conference call performance, which were hilarious.
Pierce The Veil are currently in the works of finishing up their new album, which will serve as the follow up to their 2016 album, Misadventures. Frontman Vic Fuentes also recently announced his new position as CEO of Living The Dream Foundation.
