Equal Vision Records’ alumni Pierce The Veil is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of A Flair For The Dramatic – the band’s debut full-length – with the release of limited edition vinyl. The album came out exactly ten years ago this week.
This special vinyl pressing will include an orange and white marble variant (limited to 2000; available via MerchNOW) and a transparent oatmeal variant (limited to 500; available via Smartpunk). The anniversary vinyl will also include revamped cover art, an exclusive book of never before seen photos from the writing and recording process of A Flair For The Dramatic, and a digital download card featuring three previously unreleased demos of songs from the album. Vinyl is expected to begin shipping in late August/early September, and is available for pre-order now at equalvision.merchnow.com.
Pierce The Veil was formed in 2006 by brothers Vic Fuentes (vocals/guitar) and Mike Fuentes (drums) and now also features longtime members Tony Perry (guitar) and Jaime Preciado (bass). In 2004, prior to the formation of Pierce The Veil, the Fuentes’ released another full-length on Equal Vision Records called A Celebration of an Ending under the moniker Before Today.
