While we're going to have to wait a little while longer to hear Black Veil Brides' new album The Phantom Tomorrow, the band are tiding fans over with another new single: Crimson Skies.

Speaking to Kerrang! in April, frontman Andy Biersack teased that the epic new song would be one of the heavier tracks on The Phantom Tomorrow, detailing the album's sound as a whole: "'Heavy' is a funny word, because to me that means bands like Type O Negative, and you’re not going to get that on this record!

"There’s some screaming, sure, and some very metal riffs, but by and large the goal was to paint a darker picture, and make an album that was less shiny. There are moments of straight-up arena rock on The Phantom Tomorrow, but tonally, this is definitely a darker record. And if you’re looking for heaviness, there are songs like Shadows Rise and Crimson Skies which deliver in that regard.

"Doing Re-Stitch These Wounds was an opportunity for us to do that metalcore sound again, but with regards to The Phantom Tomorrow, our goal was to evolve our sound. In terms of our catalogue, this album is probably most in-line with Wretched And Divine.

"The main thing when it comes to the sound and everything else about The Phantom Tomorrow, though, is the detail and the time we took to really build this thing out and make it multi-faceted. There are many layers to what we’ve created, and that’s something we’re really proud of."
