Black Veil Brides Premiere “Torch” Music Video

Black Veil Brides have premiered a new video for their new song “Torch.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Phantom Tomorrow,“ which will be released on October 29. Andy Biersack commented:

“We wanted to create something that felt like a fitting ending to the four-video story arc that started with ‘Scarlet Cross’, and while this is the end of the original ‘Blackbird’ video chronology, it certainly is not the end of ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’ narrative that plays out on the record and in our upcoming comic book series. It’s been one of the greatest joys of my professional life getting to dream up these concepts. For us as a band to work with such amazing individuals and to see this story realized on the screen is an absolute honor.”

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.

Andy Biersack Discusses Concept Of New Black Veil Brides Album “The Phantom Tomorrow”

During a recent appearance on “Cutter’s Rockcast,” Andy Biersack further discussed the concept of the new Black Veil Brides album “The Phantom Tomorrow.” According to him, the effort will focus on the “love of building up heroes and obsessing over other people who often don’t give a shit about you or anybody else.”

Biersack said the following:

“It’s a concept record. There is a comic book happening as well. I actually just got off the phone this morning with the publishing company for the comic book. We’re developing all the artwork and everything for that. The story is essentially the idea… In our society, especially now, we have this love of building up heroes and obsessing over other people who often don’t give a shit about you or anybody else, and we kind of have these false idols and heroes. And so the story is kind of about taking this mythological character and the people putting all of this power on to them, and then ultimately turning their back on the character because nobody can fulfill the dreams and ideas that you put on somebody else. So it’s an alternate version of our own timeline where our obsession with heroes and the iconography of somebody that’s aspirational kind of gets out of control and becomes our whole society.”

He also added the following when asked how he came up with the concept:

“In January of last year, I just kind of sat down and started writing this story. I do a lot of drawing when I’m writing as well. I’m not great, but I like to be able to represent my ideas in that way. So I wrote out this whole story and drew character designs, and then, about a week and a half later, we were set to enter the studio, and it just kind of coincidental that this whole rush of this idea came to me. And so I went to the studio with everybody and said, ‘Look, this is what I think we should do,’ and laid out the story and the plot and the ideas. ‘Cause we’ve done concept records before. The kind of method that we’ve found is best is I give the concept and the ideas, as far as the narrative perspective, to the band, and then that is how we write as a band together, to get tone and how we are gonna get through this journey. I will take those songs and then go basically write the lyrics to serve the story and plotlines along the journey from song one to the last song.

There are unfortunate kind of shackles that are put on it — meaning that you’ve gotta write within the context of what you’re writing. But I tried to keep this one more open-ended where it’s applicable… ‘Cause I didn’t wanna write about stuff I don’t know; I wanted it to be about my experience. And there’s really nothing about our story that doesn’t mimic the current situation, whether it’s on a personal level with people that I’ve known, or on a sociopolitical level, with the craziness of the worid right now. The ideas are universal, and so that made it a little bit easier to kind of get through the journey. But as far as the comic book goes, it’s kind of the same thing — I come up with the story and the artwork ideas, and then work with people who are much more talented than I am to make that a reality.”
