Black Veil Brides are versed in rebirth, reincarnation and reinvention—after 14 iconic years together, both their sound and look have matured and developed a new personality with every one of their five timeless records.
In celebration of their debut effort, We Stitch These Wounds, reaching its 10th anniversary this year and their re-recording of the unforgettable 2010 classic due soon, the time has come to find out which of these five eras best defines you as a person. From the darkly inclined first album to the passionate Wretched And Divine, we’ve got the answers right here.
More on Black Veil Brides
Last month, the Cincinnati-raised emo legends released a moving cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “American Skin (41 Shots)” in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
While further details on that are still pending, BVB will be releasing a re-recording of their debut album, Re-Stitch These Wounds with a new redesigned cover created by artist Luca Solo Macello. It will mark their next release on new label Sumerian Records following The Night at the end of 2019.
In June, the band released “Sweet Blasphemy” as the first reimagining off of the re-recorded album. Last week, they released the second offering from the upcoming release with a reworking of “Perfect Weapon.”
The reimagined album is about seven years in the making with Biersack and guitarist Jake Pitts first discussing the idea while on tour in support of Wretched And Divine in 2013.
“We were so interested in how much better our recordings sounded through the course of our career,” Biersack tells AltPress. “We’d blast these songs live, and they had such a different dynamic to them. And we would talk often about how great [it would be] to revisit that record. Not with a full record-sized budget. But just thinking, ‘Can we revisit it with what we know now?’”
