Concert Review: Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria, & Crown The Empire In San Francisco, CA

On March 1, I attended the Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria, and Crown The Empire show at The Warfield in San Francisco, CA and it was a great show.

Crown The Empire opened the concert with an energetic performance. The band played a mix of songs from all three of their albums, offering a bit of variety. The music was slightly overpowering Andy Leo’s vocals, but other than that they were pretty much on point. A highlight from their set was their final track “Machines.”

Next, Asking Alexandria took the stage for an insane performance. The band opened with “Into The Fire” and from there they basically played a balance of new and old songs. It was cool to see Danny Worsnop back in the group, and his voice seemed to be even more powerful than it was in the past. The chemistry between him and the other members, especially guitarist Ben Bruce, was great as well. Highlights from their performance included: “To The Stage,” “The Final Episode (Let’s Change the Channel),” a mini acoustic set featuring “Vultures” and “Someone, Somewhere,” and their encore songs “Moving On” and “The Death Of Me.”

After Asking Alexandria, it was time for Black Veil Brides. The band kicked things off with “Faithless” before transitioning to “Coffin.” The group pretty much stuck to older material with a couple of songs from their latest album “Vale” thrown in for good measure. Between Jake Pitts and Jinxx’s impressive guitar work, Christian “CC” Coma’s thunderous drumming, Ashley Purdy’s bass lines, and frontman Andy Biersack’s robust vocals, they were pretty much solid on all fronts. Hell, even Jinxx’s violin skills were a sight to see. Highlights from their set included “I Am Bulletproof,” “Rebel Love Song,” “The Legacy,” “Knives And Pens” and their three sing encore which featured “Perfect Weapon,” “Fallen Angels,” and “In The End.”

#BlackVeilBrides were awesome! \m/ @blackveilbrides

Asking Alexandria Premiere Acoustic Version Of “Into The Fire”

Asking Alexandria have premiered a new video for an acoustic version of their song “Into The Fire.” The original version of the track appears on their recently released self-titled album.

Danny Worsnop told Alternative Press the following about the song:

“It’s uncomfortable that you know you’re always going to find things about yourself that you don’t like—especially when you’re a person like me, and you’re fucked up in the head.

There’s always parts that I wish weren’t there, and I wish weren’t me, but it’s part of who I am and what I am. The song is about finding ways to take those bad things about myself, those character flaws, those mental problems and somehow turn them into a good thing.”
