Black Veil Brides are teasing a new single and video, Fields Of Bone
The Cali hard-rockers are “inviting” fans to “enter” the Fields Of Bone on April 9 (this Friday), sharing a dramatic teaser clip for the single’s music video – which was written and directed by frontman Andy Biersack. Spoiler alert: it already looks very cinematic.
Presumably Fields Of Bone will feature on upcoming LP The Phantom Tomorrow, which Andy told Kerrang! in November 2020 was sonically built on “heavy rock riffs”.
“Over the years we got away from the heavy-riff-big-chorus dynamic, which is what makes Black Veil Brides,” he said. “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.”
Andy continued of what else fans can expect to hear: “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.”
Sounds killer. Until then, check out the Fields Of Bone teaser below:
