Upcoming July 2016 cover band Pierce The Veil has launched a charity auction in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. Fans of the band can get a piece of memorabilia and raise vital funds for young people with cancer. The guitar, an Epiphany Les Paul Special II, was recently thrown from a cliff in San Diego on the set of the band's recent Rock Sound cover shoot. The remains have been signed by the band and donated to Teenage Cancer Trust.
Frontmant Vic Fuentes said, "I've always wanted to throw a guitar off of a cliff, so why not do it for a great cause like the Teenage Cancer Trust? This is something that means a lot to me personally and we are all proud to announce this fun collaboration with them. We hope that this auction helps spread awareness and love to those who truly need it."
The auction is currently live and will run until 2:00 P.M. ET Sunday, June 12, with all proceeds from the winning bid directly supporting young people with cancer in the U.K.
Recently, Pierce The Veil announced dates for the band's U.K./European headline tour that will kick off in Paris on Oct. 29. The 29-date, five-week tour is in support of the band's new album Misadventures that debuted at No. 4 on Billboard's Top 200 chart, No. 1 on its Rock, Hard Rock, Alternative and Independent charts, as well as Top 20 placings in the U.K., Mexico, Australia and Canada.
