Pierce The Veil rocked Kansas with Neck Deep, and I Prevail on September 27th during their Made To Destroy Tour. Since the release of Misadventures, Pierce The Veil has taken the alternative scene by storm. By The Barricade caught the San Diego natives on tour with Movements and I The Mighty back in June when they played the album in full, and the rockers haven’t slowed down since. Their show in Kansas City was no exception.

I Prevail kicked the show off right, taking the stage by storm and getting the crowd riled up in a couple seconds. Their track “Scars” was an explosive start to their set, and it was obvious that the KC fans were loving it. Energy radiated from the crowd even if some fans didn’t know the words. Once the band started to blare their cover of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” in the seven song set all fans joined in the fun.

Neck Deep followed, and, as always, were a great deal of fun to watch. It’s been great to see the band’s stage presence seem to constantly improve. The first couple of songs in their set came off their album Life’s Not Out To Get You, and this writer could watch the band play songs from this album over and over and never leave disappointed. Between catchy lyrics and bouncing beats, there’s more than enough to keep the adrenaline pumped. An interesting twist in Neck Deep’s set was the slower track “A Part Of Me” versus the usual “December”. Luckily, a change in tempo didn’t lower the room’s energy one bit and left the crowd riling for the main attraction.

When Pierce The Veil finally took the stage to begin their set, there wasn’t a single dull moment. Back in June, the band’s production was jaw dropping. This time, somehow, it managed to be improved upon with the help of a larger stage that provided more room to jump around.

If this writer ever had to put together a dream setlist for a Pierce The Vial show, the Made To Destroy Tour’s setlist would be it, the band’s set catered to everyone with an assortment of tracks from each album. The show started off quick with a couple of new songs, followed by their hit “Caraphernelia” from Selfish Machines. It popped off again with “Floral & Fading” from Misadventures, which was then followed by “Kissing In Cars”, an older song that was released as a bonus track on the Selfish Machines reissue.

Every song performed felt personal. There was an almost palpable connection between band and crowd. When coupled with the production, this show was nothing short of amazing. To see Pierce The Veil kick back into the music world so strong after releasing Misadventures has been so great to get to experience, both as a writer and a fan of the group, and it’s more than obvious with every performance they give that they’re going nowhere but up and shooting straight for the top. Be sure to catch Pierce The Veil next time they are in your town!
