Pierce the Veil's debut album, A Flair for the Dramatic, in their San Diego home studio, and later recorded it in Seattle with producer Casey Bates (Gatsbys American Dream, Fear Before the March of Flames). Their original affiliation with Equal Vision continued, and in early summer 2007, A Flair for the Dramatic appeared via the Albany-based label. The fall was then spent on opening dates for rockers From First to Last. A second album, Selfish Machines, arrived on the label in 2010 before the band parted ways with Equal Vision, eventually signing with Fearless Records the following year. Their third album, Collide with the Sky, appeared on their new label in 2012, with production from Dan Korneff. A tour documentary titled This Is a Wasteland was released at the end of 2013, capturing the band hard at work across Southeast Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. More touring followed during 2014 and 2015, along with recording for Pierce the Veil's fourth album, Misadventures, which appeared in the spring of 2016.
