The fourth in a series of video blogs featuring footage from the recording sessions for the fourth, self-titled album from Los Angeles theatrical rockers BLACK VEIL BRIDES can be seen below. Due on October 28, the follow-up to the band's third CD, last year's "Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones", was helmed by producer Bob Rock, whose resume includes albums by METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE CULT and many others. The 11-track album features some of BLACK VEIL BRIDES' most aggressive and diverse songs to date.
"Black Veil Brides" track listing:
01. Heart Of Fire
03. Devil In The Mirror
04. Goodbye Agony
05. World Of Sacrifice
06. Last Rites
07. Stolen Omen
08. Walk Away
09. Drag Me To The Grave
10. Shattered God
11. Crown Of The Thorns
"Heart Of Fire" was premiered on the September 8 edition of BBC Radio 1's "Rock Show" with Daniel P. Carter. The song is described in a press release as "an upbeat rocker that showcases the band's signnature dual-guitar attack and driving rhythm section all behind a positive lyrical message the band has become known for."
The album cover was designed by longtime friend and previous album cover illustrator Richard Villa and can be seen below.
BLACK VEIL BRIDES recently filmed videos for two singles, including "Heart Of Fire", which was shot in Santa Clarita, California.
"The plan is just to do something that is a high-impact performance video," Biersack told VH1 Radio Network's Dave Basner early last month. "I think that the song calls for it. We're not going to do a whole lot of storyline in it. Obviously we made a whole movie out of the last record so we really want something that is very performance based and kind of shows more of what the live show is like. And also, it''s still going to be ridiculously over the top and theatrical, 'cause it's us."
The new album follows up last year's "Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones", which featured the Top 15 rock radio single "In The End".
BLACK VEIL BRIDES will launch a massive U.S. headlining tour on October 21 in Niagara Falls, New York, with dates booked all the way through December 15 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
