Pierce The Veil

Pierce The Veil Land Platinum Single In The U.S.


Pierce The Veil‘s 2012 track “King For A Day” has officially gone platinum in the United States. That song, which features a guest turn from Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens, was certified both gold and platinum by the RIAA on October 29th, 2019. It appears on the band’s 2012 gold-certified album, “Collide With The Sky“.

Pierce The Veil have largely kept out of the public eye since late 2017, having gone on a hiatus of sorts after troubling allegations of sexual misconduct emerged against their drummer Mike Fuentes. A newly-uploaded promotional picture from the band shared on their social media earlier this month (see above) features Mike as a member of the group. A new album from the band is thought to have been worked on during their time away from the live circuit.

A platinum album in the United States represents 1,000,000 units, while gold signifies 500,000 units. Outside of traditional physical/digital sales, the certifications factor in digital streams/downloads with 10 permanent track downloads counting as 1 unit and 1500 on-demand audio/video streams from a particular album also counting as as a unit.
