Earlier this month, Black Veil Brides hinted that their next release might be another concept record.
Now, Andy Biersack has confirmed that their forthcoming LP is a “big, crazy awesome” concept album.
At the start of August, Jeremy “Jinxx” Ferguson revealed that Black Veil Brides are working on their next release. So far, the band have half a dozen songs written. Black Veil Brides are also revisiting the idea of creating a concept album like 2013’s Wretched and Divine.
“I can’t talk too about what we envision for the next album, but we are revisiting the idea of another concept record like we did with Wretched And Divine,” he says. “It would be fun to do another concept CD, but we’ll see how things pan out.”
Now, Biersack is further revealing information on BVB’s highly-anticipated next album. In an interview this week, the frontman confirms that the band are creating another concept record. As well, the entire album is being produced by Jake Pitts.
“Jake is producing the record, but it is a big, crazy awesome, concept thing we’ve been working on,” he shares.
Biersack also says that Black Veil Brides plan to expand this album’s concept and music into other creative outlets.
“There’s art, drawings, comic book designs, we wanna do a movie and all this shit, it’s a big expansive thing and we’re really excited about it.”
“We are doing a concept record,” Pitts says. “It’s a whole story that’s gonna go together, so the plan is to write way more songs than will go on the record, and once we get things tightened up, we’ll go back and listen to everything and figure out what makes sense as a whole.”
Pitts further reveals that these new songs are some of the best Black Veil Brides have written yet.
“I can’t wait for everybody to hear the new stuff,” Pitts continues. “I think as songwriters we’ve all got so much better and I think some of the new stuff we’re doing is some of the best stuff we’ve ever written.”
Along with the six completed songs Jinxx mentioned, Black Veil Brides also have a slew of other tracks in the pipeline for this next release.
“We have six songs that have vocals and are fully demoed out, we’ve got three or four songs that have half the song completed, and maybe another five or six ideas that are not complete yet,” Biersack says.
Black Veil Brides previously released the film Legion Of The Black which is an adaptation of 2013’s concept album Wretched and Divine. In the new interview, Jinxx says that the new film will be “on a grander level” than the previous film. As well, Jinxx plans to incorporate some film score pieces he is currently working on.
At this time, Black Veil Brides have not revealed when this new concept album will be released.
On July 31, Black Veil Brides debuted their re-record Re-Stitch These Wounds. For the new release, the band revisited their debut album We Stitch These Wounds for its 10-year anniversary. Re-Stitched These Wounds features re-workings of the album’s 12 songs.
