Pierce the Veil share cover of Radioheads ‘Karma Police’

Following a sold-out tour of The US, Europe and The UK where they played some of their biggest headline shows to date, San Diego’s Pierce The Veil have unveiled their take on Radiohead’s classic song “Karma Police.”   Having already wowed fans with their rendition of the track after recording it for Australia’s triple j radio station, the band have now recorded a studio version. 

While still infusing their signature style into the iconic single this new interpretation is yet another testament to their musical prowess, giving a fresh new look to the song.  The band say, “We are products of the 80s and 90s MTV era, so songs like ‘Karma Police’ live deep within our childhood minds. We dug this one up as an opportunity to indulge in something comforting and familiar. Taking inspiration from the memories and emotions the song evokes in us, we created a version that reflects where we come from as a band.  We were happy to discover that the song remained haunting and beautiful even when fed through distortion pedals and loud guitars.”

With their seamless fusion of post-hardcore intensity and emotional depth, Pierce The Veil are well-known for giving their fans an unforgettable concert experience.  This summer they will criss-cross North America as the direct support for blink-182’s “one more time” tour.  The band will also be making a stop at Chicago’s Lollapalooza Festival 1 – 4 August.  All dates are listed below and tickets are available here.

Platinum-selling Pierce the Veil (guitarist/vocalist Vic Fuentes, guitarist Tony Perry, and bassist Jaime Preciado) released their 5th studio album The Jaws Of Life to world-wide acclaim.  The album, out via long-time label Fearless Records, hit # 14 on the Top 200, #2 on Billboard’s Alternative Chart, and #1 on the Top Hard Rock Albums Chart.  The LP features the single “Emergency Contact” which landed at #1 at Alternative Radio — a first for the band in their lengthy history.  That song, alongside The Jaws of Life other singles –  “Pass The Nirvana,” “Even When I’m Not with You” and “12 Fractures (feat. Chloe Moriondo)” – have been streamed over 140 millionX times collectively.
