Los Angeles’ newest rock group, the Black Veil Brides, continue their musical takeover with their major label debut, ‘Set The World On Fire’. The band’s second album is set for release via Lava Music/Universal Republic Records on June 13 in the UK. ‘Set The World On Fire’ is the follow-up to their debut album released in 2010, ‘We Stitch These Wounds’ – which went to number one on the American Billboard Independent chart.
“Everything is bigger: more songs, more vocals, and more melodies. And it all came naturally; it’s not an attempt to try to outdo our first record, but we wanted to show how we had naturally grown as a band and as songwriters. This is my favorite record I’ve ever made — and most importantly, the best album anybody’s ever made” proclaims front man and founder Andy Biersack.
‘Fallen Angels’, the first single from ‘Set The World On Fire’, is to arrive as an early present to fans on May 2 via iTunes. The song is a mantra for anyone who has ever felt outside the norm and sure to become the battle cry of the band’s devoted fan base, affectionately referred to as the ‘BVBArmy’. The video, shot in Los Angeles last month, was directed by Nathan Cox (Marilyn Manson, Disturbed, DevilDriver, HIM).
The title track from the upcoming release will also be featured in Wes Craven’s ‘Scream 4’. The song found its way into the film after the band’s loyal army flooded the Scream message boards when a survey was posted asking which artists they would like to see on the soundtrack. Before long, pages of posts mentioning the Black Veil Brides found their way in front of the music supervisor and director Wes Craven. That led to ‘Set The World On Fire’ being in the film.
The band is currently on the road headlining The AP Tour 2011. They will also be performing at this year’s Bamboozle Music Festival in New Jersey, Rock on the Range in Ohio and Download Festival on June 12 in the UK, before heading out on Warped Tour at the end of June.
