Black Veil Brides previously announced they will be reimaging their debut album in honor of its 10-year anniversary, but apparently, there will be a twist.
The band revealed there will be a new song on the updated version of We Stitch These Wounds.
Black Veil Brides guitarist Jeremy “Jinxx” Ferguson spoke to Myglobalmind to talk about the upcoming re-recorded album.
“(We Stitch These Wounds) was recorded ten years ago, and we didn’t have a large budget to do it properly,” he said. “We had to call in some favors just to get it completed.”
“This time, we will produce it ourselves and have it match to what we sound like now,” he continued. “It should be a lot of fun to remake that CD; then it will be released for the 10th anniversary. We are planning to add a new studio song on it as well to tease the fans on what they can expect from the next studio CD.”
He was asked if he felt that the album was overlooked by fans, but he said it just wasn’t up to quality when it was released.
“The songs are there; the production value was not,” he responded. “It was unfortunate at the time, but we did what we could do. It would be nice to hear them re-recorded in their full glory.”
He continued, saying that the material would be true to how it was written.
“We don’t want to change the song too much, as people are familiar with it,” he said. “We call it ‘demoitis’ — you record something as a demo, and everyone gets used to that version; then you do it properly in the studio, and everyone starts to say it’s not the same as the demo.”
“I think that happened with ‘Knives And Pens,’” he continued. “When fans heard the demo on YouTube and then we went into the studio to record it, some fans were saying that we ruined it. I don’t want to say too much, as we are not there yet … We will play all the parts with better tone and production. I believe it will be true to the original with all the same notes.”
He also revealed that the band is hitting the studio in the fall, and how it’s been going back to songs they wrote more than a decade ago.
“We are going into the studio this fall to knock it, and we are really excited about it,” he said. “We have been going over all the songs with a fine-tooth comb. Some of them we played on the road, while others haven’t been touched for ten years. We will be reliving the experience we had when we initially recorded this CD.”
He also teased a potential tour with the reimagined debut album. He said he can “definitely see it happening in 2020,” so we’ll have to wait and see.
At one of his shows last month, Black helped a couple’s dream proposal come true.
Apparently, at his show in Massachusetts, someone in the crowd asked people to help get a napkin with a note on it to Black.
It read, “my girlfriend is a die hard fan I want to propose to her can u get this to andy,” according to a Twitter user who helped pass the note to the manager.
It eventually got to Black, who brought the person on stage and handed over the mic to set up the most perfect proposal of all time.
“So there’s someone in the audience, my girlfriend … she’s changed my life,” she starts.
Once the speaker pointed out the girlfriend in the audience, Black brought her up on stage to make it even more magical. Then, the person told Black how much his music means to her girlfriend.
“You’re the No. 1 person in her life. She looks to your lyrics for guidance. You inspire her in so many ways and she brought you in my life,” she continued.
Then, the proposal happened.
“I love you so much. You changed my life. You’re the most understanding, amazing person I could have ever imagined,” she said.
Then, she got down on one knee and asked her to marry her, which was met with screams from the crowd and a “yes.”
You can watch the entire proposal video below, but be prepared to cry your eyes out.
So this happened last night… someone gave me a napkin in the crowd saying “my girlfriend is a die hard fan I want to propose to her can u get this to andy” and me along with a few others helped get it to the manager at the side of the stage and in the end to @andyblack pic.twitter.com/XltgddFe3g
