BLACK VEIL BRIDES

Written by Ryan J. Downey
The BVB contingent realized nobody stays in a band to be miserable—not even a successful one. So they got over themselves and got into their craft like they never had before, creating a whole new monster in the process.

A special message from Black Veil Brides:
