Andy Biersack confirms the new Black Veil Brides album is “almost complete”
Brace yourselves, BVB Army: Andy Biersack has confirmed that Black Veil Brides’ upcoming album The Phantom Tomorrow is “almost complete”.
When Kerrang! last caught up with the frontman in November 2020, Andy revealed that the band’s new LP was “about 75 per cent, soon to be 80 per cent” finished. And now it’s even further along, with release date information and more “coming soon”.
“Just wanted to say thank you for all of your support and excitement regarding my most recent projects!” Andy posted on Instagram in a message to fans. “The response to the book has been incredible and I can’t wait for you guys to see Paradise City coming to Amazon Prime Video next month!
“I also wanted to update you that the upcoming Black Veil Brides record The Phantom Tomorrow is almost complete so be on the look out for release info and a lot more coming soon!”
Discussing what’s to come from The Phantom Tomorrow, Andy explained to K!, “Over the years we got away from the heavy-riff-big-chorus dynamic, which is what makes Black Veil Brides. Our previous full-length record [2018’s Vale] was very soft, with a lot of shine to it, so the goal [this time] was to find a way to make it grand, with a lot of string elements and everything, but still feel like there’s an edge built from the riff.”
He added of what it’s all about: “I don’t love the term ‘concept record’, but [The Phantom Tomorrow] is a concept record. There are themes and ideas and moments that are hugely different from one moment to the next, but the goal at the end of the day, the heart of everything, is to write a heavy rock record and build out everything from there, as opposed to writing a pop record and putting riffs over it.”
