BLACK VEIL BRIDES: 'When They Call My Name' Video Released

Los Angeles rockers BLACK VEIL BRIDES have released the official music video for the song "When They Call My Name". The track is taken from the band's fifth album, "Vale", which was released on January 12 via Lava/Universal Republic. The follow-up to BLACK VEIL BRIDES' 2014 self-titled effort was produced by John Feldmann at his Southern California studio.

BLACK VEIL BRIDES vocalist Andy Biersack told Kerrang! magazine about "When They Call My Name": "This is a song that's really dear to me. It's about dealing with my anxiety and having my wife helping me to do that and helping me through these scenarios. On this album, I found myself writing more and more honestly and openly about different sorts of issues."

Biersack told HMV.com that the decision to work with Feldmann again was an easy one. "John is one of my best friends and there's no argument about what impact he's had on us," he said. "He produced the record that's done the most for us and it felt really comfortable, especially as we were going back to the story of Wretched and Divine, so it seemed logical to go back to John."

Regarding the making of "Vale", the singer told AltPress: "I think [the record is] an accurate description of how I handle things artistically. Anytime I've had any real struggle in my life that I've been involved in, whether it's a more personal or societal thing, I tend to want to write a story about it. 'Wretched And Divine' was a response to that feeling of being a schtick band that for five and a half years, people considered an afterthought, as well as the amount of criticism that we faced. That faded into this weird, dreamy, ethereal concept record. My emotional stimulus to societal issues is to write a story, something that is a bit more narrative-driven and not so punch-you-in-the-head. It's probably a reflection of my personality, anyway. Unless I'm inebriated, I'm not really yelling at people. [Laughs] To me, a song like 'Dead Man Walking' is very aggressive, but it's more about content and less about the guitar crunch."
