PIERCE THE VEIL made its late-night television talk show debut last night on "Conan", performing the band's hot new single, "Circles". Video footage of their appearance can be seen below.Inspired by last fall's horrific terriorist attack in Paris, "Circles" tells a hypothetical tale of two friends at the EAGLES OF DEATH METAL show and how they tried to save each other as the onslaught was taking place. "I watched the EAGLES OF DEATH METAL talk about what happened," said PIERCE THE VEIL's lyricist Vic Fuentes. "They said a lot of people died trying to save their friends, and that just really affected me, thinking about these kids at a rock show trying to save their friends. And I realized that could have been our band or any of our friends' bands, and the whole situation really hit me hard." "Circles" is currently in regular rotation on 21 alternative and active rock radio stations across the country, including 91X, the influential alt/rock station in the band's hometown of San Diego, and Los Angeles powerhouse KROQ-FM where the song has been #1 on the program "Furious 5 @9". PIERCE THE VEIL wrapped its sold-out U.S. "Misadventures Tour" on Sunday night, and heads to South America, Mexico and Australia next month. PIERCE THE VEIL's new album, "Misadventures" (Fearless Records) was released May 13 and debuted at #1 on Billboard's Alternative, Rock, Hard Rock and Independent charts.
