Never Rest  Band highlight    "Never Rest is a 4 piece hardcore band from Austin, TX. Never Rest was started back in late 2018. After a few member changes, we began playing shows in July 2021."  What brought your band together? Dustin(guitars) and Zac(drums) moved to Austin in 2014 from opposite ends of Texas. After a handful of years of not doing anything musically, we set out to find like minded musicians to jam/collaborate with. We ended up finding each other through Craigslist and clicked right away.

Iconic. My Pierce The Veil era was a wonderfully depressing time for thirteen year old me. PTV had their own unique sound. Catchy “mexicore” riffs, metalcore influenced breakdowns, and let’s not forget the wildly varying vocal range of the one and only, Vic Fuentes. Previously known as, Before Today, Pierce the Veil’s success amplified in 2012 after signing to Fearless Records and later dropping their most famous album, Collide With the Sky. Good thing the world didn’t end. AMIRITE?! I can single handedly say PTV had an enormous impact on the youth in the music scene.
