Black Veil Brides to release live DVD in 2015


Hot on the heels of their fourth studio album, Black Veil Brides have announced that they are to release a live DVD.

The band recorded their performance at the Wiltern Theatre in their hometown of Los Angeles on the 1st of November and will release the film in June of 2015. The filming was directed by Casey Tebo.

Speaking to Revolver, frontman Andy Biersack explained why the record is their most aggressive to date: “It’s very angry. I feel like in a lot of ways I had a lot of aggression towards the state of how we were perceived. We made Wretched And Divine so large in scale and it had a grand story. There was a certain amount of frustration when you do this thing so large and great but there were so many people who just refused to listen to the songs, like, ‘They’re a faggy makeup band.’”

“I enjoyed looking back on those feelings because I don’t really care anymore. But I wanted to re-tap into those aggressive feelings – there is a lot more angst on this record.”

Black Veil Brides also recently unveiled the official video for new single “Goodbye Agony”. You can watch the clip below:
