Thanks to TikTok trends resurrecting decade-old (and older) pop-punk and emo hits and spreading them like wildfire to a new surge of listeners, there has been a nostalgic Noughties emo revival. Between the majorly sentimental lineup of the When We Were Young Fest and bands like My Chemical Romance, Paramore, Thursday, Blink-182, Sunny Day Real Estate, and others, snapping out of hiatus and flooding stages once again, it should come as no surprise that Pierce the Veil is rejoining the ranks.
Riot Fest has announced their full slate of late night “After Shows” with shows including Thursday with Anthony Green, Fear, Bully, The Maine, Alexisonfire with War On Women, Jeff Rosenstock, Pvris, Alkaline Trio, Sunny Day Real Estate, Jimmy Eat World, Action Bronson, The Academy Is… with Midtown, The Get Up Kids with Sparta and more!

Foo Fighters bassist Nate Mendel is streaming his solo project Lieutenant, which will be dropping their debut album If I Kill This Thing We’re All Going To Eat For A Week, out March 9, 2015 via Dine Alone Records.
Mendel has been a member of Foo Fighters since 1995 and never had time to explore a solo project before, saying,
“There’s never a right time! Schedules are always packed. There are always other commitments. So it was important I just bit the bullet and did this. Or maybe I never would.”
The album features guest appearances from Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett, Helmet frontman and guitarist Page Hamilton, Modest Mouse’s Joe Plummer and Jeremy Enigk from Sunny Day Real Estate.
Mendel plans to take Lieutenant out on a spring tour before he regroups with Foo Fighters for their massive summer trek.
