Sorry folks, but we’re going to have to wait a little longer for the Black Veil Brides’ fifth studio album. Although it was due out for September, the band has now announced the album release date for early 2018.
Frontman Andy Biersack explained the decision to push back the release date with Rock Sound Podcast. He said, “First of all, we took fifteen months to make the record, and so in that way, we really wanted everything to be as perfect as possible. And the original deadline that we gave ourselves while the record was completed and the mixing was completed, we weren’t able to get the artwork and assets and all the stuff together exactly how we wanted it. And while listening to it, there were also elements and stuff I wanted to change.”
He continued, “So we had a discussion with the label and they were in agreement with us that it seemed like we should try to line it up with something big tour-wise. And we’ve put together something for the winter that we’ll also come to England with. It’s gonna be a really big tour and I think something that people have been wanting to see for a very long time.”
According to Biersack, the album will be worth the wait. He said, “I think that it’s just a record that we’re really, really proud of and I think it’s a great album and I think the fans are gonna like it, and it’s a long time coming. At this point, it’ll be four years since the last Black Veil record, by the time it’s out. So I think it’s a long time coming, and I think people are gonna really enjoy it.”
Fans can also look forward to a winter tour to coincide with the album release. Keep your eyes peeled for more information regarding the new record and tour dates!
