Black Veil Brides have revealed that they are now planning to release their new album in 2018. Andy Biersack explained the delay, and teased a big tour in a recent interview with Rock Sound. You can read some of his comments below.
Biersack on the album delay:
“The reason for the delay was that – first of all – we took 15 months to make the record, we really wanted everything to be as perfect as possible.
We weren’t able to get the artwork and assets together exactly as we wanted it for the original deadline and – while listening to it back in the meantime – there were elements that I wanted to change.
We had a discussion with the label and they agreed with us that we should line it up with something big tour-wise, so we’ve put something together for the winter for the release that’s going to be a really big tour that I think people have wanted to see for a while.”
He further added the following about the upcoming tour:
“I can’t tell you too much more – if I could, I would! But I will say this – it’s a tour that the fans have wanted for a very long time, it’s something that people have been asking for us to do for years and we were finally able to get it together – I think it’s going to be something really special.
I think the people in the world who like what we do musically and are part of the scene that we exist in will be really excited to come out to these shows.”
It looks like the new Black Veil Brides album will be released in September. Jake Pitts and Jinxx revealed the news during an interview with Front Row Live, which you can watch below:

According to TMZ, Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack and his wife Juliet Simms got into an argument while flying from Charlotte, NC to Los Angeles, CA yesterday (October 30). the fight was apparently due to Simms having a little too much to drink. It has also been reported that FBI got involved, due to it taking place on a plane.
Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack was recently interviewed by Alternative Press, and was asked about the band’s new album, which they are recording with producer John Feldmann. He said the band currently have about nine or ten songs “in the mixing process.”
Biersack said the following:
“As of me talking to you right now, we have nine or 10 songs completed that are currently in the mixing process. I don’t think we’ll go too much further; it’s been a process of shedding down to this point. Rather than record 100 songs we didn’t like, we were really able to strip away the stuff that didn’t seem as strong. It feels like the story I want to tell will be done in the 10 or 11 songs in this record. I can’t tell you how great it is seeing how much Jake and Jinxx have grown as players and songwriters. The future is so bright.”
He also added:
“There’s certainly a concept to the record but I don’t know that it is a “concept record.” The songs tie together for a full story I will eventually talk about, but not right now. I don’t think I’m ready to yet. The only place it exists is in a notebook where I’ve written everything out. And I sent a text message to Feldy with it. [Laughs.] Until I have it definitively down, it’s not worth sharing yet.”
