In a new interview, Vic Fuentes explains that the new Pierce the Veil album, Misadventures, was written and recorded in various studios, hotel rooms, and even a few homes rented through Airbnb.
“I finished the lyrics to “Bedless” in Marina Del Rey, pacing around an Airbnb one night at like 3 a.m.,” the singer told Alt Press.
Fuentes, also rented a secluded home in Santa Barbara, California for a month. “It was this modern rustic little house,” he explained. It was the kind of place meant to walk around naked in. There’s a lot of privacy but the house itself had all glass doors and the shower door opened up into the yard. You can take a bath outside in the yard. I wrote the lyrics for ‘The Divine Zero’ there.”
In addition to the Airbnb locations, Fuentes also rented a house in San Diego, spent a week in a Seattle hotel, the highly revered Village recording studios in Los Angeles, and spent nearly two months in isolation in a small mountain cabin 150 miles east of Los Angeles.
Fuentes detailed his issues with writing on the road. It’s simply too difficult with noise and distractions. Apparently even recording in studio rehearsal spaces proved to be troublesome. Fuentes requires solitude. “I worked at a lockout practice space in Burbank but I had a lot of trouble writing there, because of the noise from other musicians in the neighboring rooms.”
“There’s something from every place on the record,” says Fuentes. “Whether it’s a guitar or a vocal or a sample, or a keyboard part. “The more that I realize that if something sounds cool then it’s going to go on the record. It doesn’t have to be done in a million-dollar studio.”
After all moving from studio to studio like a game of musical chairs, Fuentes flew to Long Island, NY to finally record the album fans have long awaited.
