Pierce the Veil played at Vibrant Music Hall in Waukee, Iowa this Saturday, December 2nd in support of their latest album, The Jaws of Life. They were joined by supporting acts Destroy Boys, Dayseeker, and LS Dunes.
California-based band Destroy Boys started with an engaging and energetic set. Alongside their music, they delivered a message of self-expression and self-worth. Their lyrics and delivery resonated with fans new and old.
Also hailing from California, Dayseeker took the stage next. The band’s set was very cinematic and felt like a movie taking place on stage. Crystal-clear vocals rang out as their set went on, and the crowd was drawn in. Dayseeker left with many new fans after Saturday’s show.
Next up was fan favorite, LS Dunes. Lead vocalist Anthony Green debuted a new look, and his newly blonde hair caused quite a stir amongst fans. They wasted no time getting into their hard-hitting favorites. The whole band commanded the stage and kept concertgoers engaged and excited. They closed their set with their newest song, Old Wounds.
Finally, after much anticipation, it was time for Pierce the Veil‘s set. When the lights dimmed, the excitement was palpable. With a wall of smoke and a confetti explosion, the set was off to an incredible start. They quickly began playing fan favorites as well as songs from their newest album. It was a perfect mix of new and old. Fans didn’t miss a beat and sang along at the top of their lungs. This band has such a strong bond with their fans, and it’s easy to see that they love to engage with them every chance they can. Between songs, frontman Vic Fuentes shared stories and anecdotes from over the years. At one point, one lucky fan was brought on stage and was gifted Vic’s guitar. It’s easy to see why these fans are so dedicated. The love is equal on both sides. They closed the night with the title track from their new album, The Jaws of Life, before coming back to play a few more songs for the fans.
