Pierce The Veil - Selfish Machines Cover

Let the songs speak for themselves!

San Diego’s Pierce The Veil have a real listen-again quality to them; there’s an element of creativity that makes you think ‘Wait, are they really contrasting a fast metalcore riff with handclaps, and chugging guitars with classical piano – all on the same song (‘Besitos’)?’. There are two drawbacks; one, ‘Fast Times At Clairemont High’ sounds way too similar to The Matches’ ‘Sunburn Versus The Rhinovirus’. Secondly, over-experimentation with production, particularly autotuned vocals, gives the impression of something to hide. Much better for Pierce The Veil to pierce the freaking veil and let the songs speak for themselves!
