I’m really surprised that there isn’t multiple idiotic little “I wonder how many hipsters reblogged this not realising that it’s a PTV quote” comment on this yet
Maybe because someone really needs this, maybe this is that little thing to make them smile. I don’t mind sharing my favorite band and them not knowing who it is doesn’t really matter. As long in the end if it helps them then that’s okay. Because if we all know Pierce The Veil, they help people. And if they don’t know it oh well, as long as it helps them in the end. Maybe they really need to know that they will be okay.
“[That song]’s mostly a true story,” admits singer Jordan Dreyer in the latest issue of Rock Sound. “A year or two ago, down the street from where Brad [Vander Lugt, drums] and I work, a kid was shot. It’s an area that’s been riddled with gang violence, which has been really sad to witness. It was the son of a lady I work with’s best friend. He was shot accidentally in a drive-by shooting that was intended for the group of people he was getting off the bus with - friends from his school. There were a couple of days where everyone knew who had done it and who had been shot.
There was this weird, eerie calm, and they found the guy in a hotel room on the other side of town. He locked himself in his room and shot himself. That line ‘Can I still get to heaven if I kill myself?’ is something he asked his uncle when talking about what to do.”
God. To see them live would be fantastic.
