BLACK VEIL BRIDES: 'In The End' Instant Download Available With New Album Pre-Order
October 30, 2012
Los Angeles theatrical rockers BLACK VEIL BRIDES will release their new album, "Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones", on January 8 via Lava/Universal Republic.
Fans who pre-order "Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones" on iTunes are being treated to an instant download of the lead single, "In the End". The track, which can be previewed below, was recently chosen as one of the theme songs for the WWE's Hell In A Cell pay-per-view event, which was held October 28 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
The CD was produced by by John Feldmann (PAPA ROACH, THE USED, ATREYU) and is a full-fledged concept effort, though the band's lead singer, Andy Biersack, has not revealed the exact narrative just yet. "Lyrically, the most important thing for me is, how can I tell a cohesive story?" he told Revolver magazine. "How can I take the story and kind of weave it into songs that are written otherwise about a lot of personal experiences and the band's experiences?"
The BLACK VEIL BRIDES are also going bigger in the range of musical influences they're drawing from this time out. "We've tapped into some of the influences that, as songwriters, we haven't really played with yet," the singer told the magazine. "The record has just as much influence from SISTERS OF MERCY or NINE INCH NAILS as it does SOCIAL DISTORTION, as it does METALLICA or SLAYER or anything else."
BLACK VEIL BRIDES will launch the first leg of "The Church Of The Wild Ones" world tour on January 4 in Las Vegas. The trek will wrap in San Francisco on March 8.
