Pierce the Veil’s first new song since 2016 is F–king Heavy

Pierce the Veil have returned with their first new music since 2016, the single “Drive past Nirvana,” which came out Thursday (September 1). And it’s damn heavy.

The song’s screaming fury matches the frustrating scope of its subject matter, as Pierce the Veil explained in a statement. The poppy San Diego post-hardcore emo-punks haven’t released a new tune since 2016’s Accidents, their fourth studio album. And on top of the fresh jam will Piece the Veil next week go on a trip with I am victoriouscovering North America throughout the fall.

Listen to the new song at the bottom of this post.

Pierce the Veil lead singer Vic Fuentes explains, “‘Pass the Nirvana’ is about the many horrific traumas that the youth of America have endured over the past few years. COVID, no prom, no exams, a riot, school shootings. The list goes on.”

He adds: “Their lives have been tossed around like clothes in a tumble dryer as the tensions in our country have infiltrated our own homes, friends and families. To me, the song represents a euphoric detachment from all that anxiety and stress and about finding a form for peace or nirvana.”
