Sharing the stage for the first time since their completely sold out "Collide With The Sky" 2012 tour, Sleeping with Sirens and Pierce the Veil announce a five-month, multi-leg, co-headline world tour - "The World Tour." With PTV and SWS alternating the closing spot on the bill, the tour will kick off with an 19+ date U.S. trek, launching November 5 at Woodward Park Rotary Amphitheater in Fresno, CA. Beartooth and This Wild Life will support on all of the Fall dates. Check out this special video message from SWS's Kellin Quin and PTV's Vic Fuentes. VIP Packages and limited pre-sale tickets are available now at www.theworldtour.info. Tickets go on sale to the public Saturday, July 26 at 10AM local time.
Said PTV's Vic Fuentes, "Our fans inspired us to create this tour, so that makes it extra special, and very meaningful for us. Doing a world tour is something that not a lot of bands get to do in a lifetime, so we plan on making these shows the best we've ever done. We can't wait to see you all there!"
"It's been awhile since either Sleeping with Sirens or Pierce The Veil have toured, and I think it's truly special to travel the world together," said SWS's Kellin Quinn. "So to do a tour this long that hits so many countries? What more could you ask for? It'll be insane, so don't miss out!"

About Pierce the Veil:
San Diego's own Pierce the Veil - Vic Fuentes (vocals/guitar), Mike Fuentes (drums), Tony Perry (guitar), and Jaime Preciado (bass) - has emerged as one of the fastest-rising young bands on the post-hardcore scene, manifested by the rocket-ride success of the band's 2012 release, Collide With The Sky. Debuting at #12 onBillboard's Top 200 chart, Collide With The Sky has sold nearly a quarter-million copies in the U.S. alone, and the music video for the track "King for a Day" (featuring Sleeping with Sirens' Quinn), has racked-up an astounding 32-million YouTube views. In 2012, PTV performed on the Main Stage for the entire Vans Warped Tour, and then went on to sweep the Alternative Press Readers Poll taking awards for Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Live Band of the Year, Cover Art of the Year, Music Video of the Year, Best Band Merch, Best Drummer and Best Bassist of the year. This year, marking the inauguration of AP's Music Awards, PTV has received seven nominations including Artist of the Year and Best Live Band. In 2013, the band's music video "King For A Day" was awarded "Best Video of the Year" at the Kerrang! Awards, and earlier this year, the band's critically-acclaimed documentary "This is a Wasteland," picked up aRevolver Golden God statue for Best Film & Video. PTV has been sequestered in a New York-area studio since June working again with producer Dan Korneff (CWTS) on their fourth album which will be released in early 2015.
About Sleeping with Sirens:
Sleeping With Sirens released their latest album, Feel, in 2013 which garnered a #3 debut on Billboard's Top 200 chart. Aside from playing to the biggest crowds each night on the main stage at Warped Tour for the past two years, Sleeping With Sirens has sold out numerous headlining tours worldwide. The group brought in Machine Gun Kelly to perform their first single off of Feel, "Alone", during their main stage run on Warped in 2013 and in London as a special surprise for fans. Sleeping With Sirens has been featured on numerous print magazine covers worldwide, including Kerrang, Rock Sound, Alternative Press, and Blunt. The band was named Alternative Press' Artist of the Year in 2013 and is nominated in 4 categories for the Alternative Press Music Awards this year, including "Artist of the Year" and "Album of the Year" and will also be performing. Having just announced a week of surprise performances at this year's Warped Tour to be followed by Reading & Leeds festivals in the UK, this only marks the beginning of what will be Sleeping With Sirens' biggest release yet.
Beartooth is a Columbus, OH hardcore band fronted by 21 year-old Caleb Shomo, with guitarists Taylor Lumley and Kamron Bradbury, bassist Oshie Bichar, and drummer Brandon Mullins. Off the strength of their debut EP Sick they built a strong and dedicated following; their songs have garnered two million plays on YouTube and primed them for the release of their first full-length album Disgusting, out now on Red Bull Records. Critical praise for Disgusting has been effusive: Alternative Press featured Caleb on the cover of their July Warped Tour issue, Kerrang called them "the world's best new band" and Rolling Stone named Beartooth a "New Artist You Need To Know" for the month of June. The five-piece has toured consistently both stateside and in the UK and Europe, rising from local basement shows to national tours with the likes of Memphis May Fire, August Burns Red and Of Mice & Men, and they are currently out on the Vans Warped Tour.
About This Wild Life:
This Wild Life is Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso from Long Beach, California. The two met while working at a musical instrument store and quickly bonded over their love for hardcore. Soon enough they began playing shows as pop-punk band This Wild Life. After countless shows, local success, and strong online reaction with YouTube views in the millions, they found new inspiration from Dashboard Confessional and they reinvented themselves as an acoustic duo. Clouded is their debut full-length and was recorded with Aaron Marsh of Copeland. Clouded saw phenomenal first week success on the Billboardcharts, debuting as the #1 Top New Artist, #1 Top Alternative New Artist, #49 Digital Album, and the #17 Independent Album. Clouded has garnered much critical acclaim. According to Alternative Press it is "outrageously well-written songs, played well with much skill...everything about this one is a winner" with a 4.5/5 star review. Absolute Punk calls it "one of the most impressive debut albums this year" giving it an 8.5/10. This Wild Life is the result of the hard work of the Long Beach friends. Their journey has been marked by small triumphs, big struggles and countless floor shows, bringing This Wild Life's heartfelt, melodic and acoustic punk-rock to a bigger audience they've earned.
