THE JAWS OF LIFE OUT NOW VIA FEARLESS RECORDS
Platinum-selling powerhouse Pierce The Veil — guitarist/vocalist Vic Fuentes, guitarist Tony Perry, and bassist Jaime Preciado — have shared the video for their new single “12 Fractures” video.
The song and video feature singer-songwriter chloe moriondo.
The video features Fuentes and moriondo walking down a crowded city street towards one another, as the song plays out. It captures the feeling of wondering about your place in the universe. Watch what happens when Fuentes and moriondo actually meet!
“This song is a true story about watching two best friends break up,” Fuentes shares. “It’s about the slow crumbling of love and how tiny fractures can eventually turn into breaks in a relationship. It also describes the tragic aftermath of choosing sides, possessions, and even friends to take with you as you move on. It’s a time capsule about a moment in our lives. The addition of Chloe moriondo’s angelic voice and personality to really brought the whole story to life and illuminated both character’s perspectives. It wouldn’t be the same without her.”
“Working with Vic was such a dream,” moriondo says. “It was such a sweet and fun honor. I loved filming on the street with him and the crew— it was a really awesome experience that I’m so excited is finally able to be enjoyed by everyone!”
The track appears on the new album The Jaws of Life — Pierce the Veil’s first full-length in seven years — in February via longtime label Fearless Records. Get it here.
“12 Fractures” follows “Emergency Contact,” which landed at No. 1 at alternative radio — a first for the band in their lengthy history.
The Jaws of Life marked a welcome return for PTV, with press praise pouring in from Rolling Stone, Uproxx, Huffington Post, Gawker, and MTV, among others.

ABOUT PIERCE THE VEIL:
Pierce The Veil have debuted atop Billboard’s Top Rock Albums, Alternative Albums, and Hard Rock Albums charts twice — first with Collide with the Sky (2012) and its follow-up, Misadventures (2016). A decade after its release, the already-platinum “King for a Day” shot to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Streaming chart, driven by the viral #KingForADay hashtag on TikTok. Even with two gold singles; a gold album; 2023 could be their biggest year. Because this is the year of The Jaws of Life.
The band Rolling Stone once described as “hyperactive, progressive post-hardcore,” returns with album number five, and it’s full of fuzzy guitars, massive melodic hooks, and PTV’s distinct emotional heart. The Jaws of Life is Pierce The Veil at their most raw, crackling with urgency and immediacy. Never predictable, always engaging, Pierce The Veil continue to soar on the strength of highly potent energy, rich musicality, and a scrappy sense of authentic exuberant ambition that’s frankly unrivaled. Vic Fuentes, Tony Perry, and Jaime Preciado put volatile, angsty, confessional emotions into the music, which is why their songs resonant with so many. “No matter where the band performs, fans will show up,” wrote Loudwire. “When you see Pierce The Veil live, you’ll understand why.”
PTV’s evolution from album to album is nothing less than stunning. The early buzz generated by A Flair for the Dramatic (2007) made its follow-up one of the most anticipated albums of 2010. Selfish Machines shot to No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. The Chicago Tribune saluted Collide with the Sky for its “post-hardcore punk with more than a few nods to Queen.” They became a true arena act on Misadventures, selling out huge venues without losing the intimate connection with their fans.
Pierce the Veil have long cemented their status as one of the most exciting and relevant acts in their genre — by constantly evolving. With their new album The Jaws of Life debuted at No. 1 on the Hard Music Chart, as well is in the Top 3 of the Rock, Alternative, Independent, Vinyl, and Album Sales charts upon release. The album also received press accolades from Rolling Stone, Uproxx, Gawker, The Huffington Post, and Associated Press. The single “Emergency Contact” landed in the Top 5 at Alternative Radio, while selling out tours with I Prevail and The Used. They’ve tallied over 2 billion streams and 500 million YouTube and have earned multiple Gold and Platinum RIAA certifications — proving that growth is a constant for them!
The Jaws of Life was produced by Paul Meany (Twenty One Pilots, Yungblud, and Walk The Moon), and mixed by Adam Hawkins (Machine Gun Kelly, Turnstile, Twenty One Pilots). Deadly serious subject matter abounds, but Pierce The Veil enduringly navigates it all with grace. The lyrics continue the Fuentes tradition of painstaking honesty and clever twists of phrase. Pierce The Veil performs at the biggest festivals and is counted among the biggest and brightest of a younger generation of bands. But it all starts with the songs. The Jaws of Life is filled with the kind to keep the PTV fire burning forever.
