Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack commented:

“We are so excited to release this series and build on the world that we have developed for Blackbird, 9, Scarlet, and the entire ‘Phantom Tomorrow’ universe that BVB fans have come to know over the past year via our music videos and other visual mediums. Growing up, I was heavily influenced by the works of Alan Moore, Todd McFarlane, and many other iconic writers and artists in the comics field and to have the chance to create and develop an original character that both pulls from those influences as well as creates new and compelling story arcs is a dream come true. I believe that in Michael Moreci we have found the perfect writer and collaborator and the partnership with Incendium is an ideal match to deliver rock and comics fans a memorable character-driven experience. We believe this book will serve as an excellent companion to our upcoming album and helps us to fully tell the story of ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’.”

Llexi Leon, CEO of Incendium, added:

“Black Veil Brides’ ‘Phantom Tomorrow’ was destined for comics, with it’s distinctive noir feel and a thrilling homage to the great comic book anti-heroes, we’re thrilled to be developing the world Andy has envisaged and exploring themes of obsession, religion, and hero worship through this compelling original saga.”

Black Veil Brides Delay New Album “The Phantom Tomorrow” To October

Black Veil Brides have postponed the release of their new album “The Phantom Tomorrow” due to manufacturing delays. The effort will now be available on October 29.

Andy Biersack commented:

“Hey there. Andy from Black Veil Brides here. I want to talk to you about our record The Phantom Tomorrow. As you guys know, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the production industry on every level. The music industry has been hit hard in the sense that there is a huge delay in manufacturing of things like vinyl records and physical product and other integral pieces to releasing an album.

When we finished recording The Phantom Tomorrow, we were so excited about the album that we wanted to get it out as soon as possible and so we set a June 4th release date. We realized pretty quickly that by having that June 4th release date, we would not be able to have vinyl records, other physical media, comic book series – all the things that we had planned for the release.

So we are going to delay the release of the record to October 29, 2021 at which point we will be able to have multiple vinyl variations, comic book series, different multimedia and things that can properly lay out this whole release.

We know that it’s going to be disappointing for you guys who were looking forward to hearing the full album on June 4th, but I promise you that you will hear music around that date and much more coming in the future.

We have more music videos, more singles, as I said a comic book series and I can’t go into detail about it, but the return of Black Veil Brides live music is happening sooner than you think so there will be lots of announcements coming.

So again, October 29th, 2021 – The Phantom Tomorrow. We can’t wait for you guys to hear the record and join us in this world that we have put together and hopefully, you enjoy it and it is worth the wait.
