Black Veil Brides: 'Our New Album's Going To Be A Punk Record'
11
Black Veil Brides have spoken about their plans for their third studio album and have revealed that it's "going to be a punk rock record." The goth metallers, who are currently completing the final leg of their world tour in support of their 2011 second LP "World's On Fire," played a well received set at this weekend's Download Festival. Speaking to NME in a video which you can see at the top of the screen, singer Andy Biersack said that the band hoped to complete work on the record by the end of August and were working with Goldfinger's John Feldmann. Asked about this, he said: "We've got three songs tracked. We've set ourselves a deadline of the end of August to finish it. We've got 20 to 25 songs written and we're narrowing it down now. John Feldmann is producing it. It's going to be more of a punk rock record than anything we've done before. It's Social Distortion meets Metallica." Then asked if he had a title in mind, Biersack replied: "Of course we've got a title. I don't do anything unless I think about it six months in advance. We've got a title, we've got a story. It's a bit of concept record, there's a very serious story behind it. It's full of surprises." The singer then spoke about how he viewed his band's progress since their appearance at Download in 2011 and labelled their momentum as "like a rocket." He said of this: "Our career trajectory has been like a rocket. We came here for pennies last year when we didn't even have a record out. We only played because Download and Andy Copping believed in us." Black Veil Brides are presently scheduled to release their third album in October. Thanks for the report to Nme.com.

    I actually think they might be ok as a punk band. Their singer's voice will be more tolerable to punk fans, and their mediocre songwriting won't be as obvious.

    No wonder, even their fans have to admitt they are an appalling live band, boring as hell and sound awful.

    It's strange what people think is hardcore these days...while punk is allowed to evolve and not be restricted, A Day To Remember and all the like isn't hardcore

    I'm with MetalRock4ever. Why do people hate BVB? I honestly think they're awesome and for everyone who thinks they're just a Motley Crue crap-remake is dead wrong and should probably just go jump off a cliff. I'm sorry, but this band has helped me through so much and you have no ****ing right to pick on them in any way.

    Exactly. You can't just label the look without hearing the sound. they aren't extreme death metal shit (nothing against death at all) but that doesn't mean they are absolute crap. at least they're not Nickelback!

    No doubt this gonna sound like a slightly heavier Green Day clone instead of actual punk, even though they did say "Social Distortion meets Metallica" you know it to be the truth.

    Actually in the very beginning, BVB played punk. It was like a Motley Crue meets the Misfits sound. The record will probably sound a lot like a murderdolls record.

    Those who dislike comments which support that they have talent prove that the haters really are close-minded and aren't popular. Those who come on other band's webstie and slag them offjust prove that they are no-lifers. End of.

    Good on them to release another album. Set the World on Fire was pretty decent. Oh and one more thing, if someone likes one band, don't mock their taste in music. Everyone's unique.

    I'm glad they don't call it 'glam metal' anymore. They are a laughingstock! Silly kids. Wanna be 80s glam metal? Ditch them metalcore hooks and throw in vocal harmonies and melodies. Anyway, bvb will still suck.

    I love hoe the only people that resort to the "everyone is different/unique" etc are kids who like shit music

    I find the idea of such a commercialized excuse of a "Rock" band making a Punk album laughable. They neither have the attitude nor the energy to pull that off, and not to mention the whole thing about Punk being vehemently anti-commercial..

    "It's Social Distortion meets Metallica" ugh we already have that.. its called volbeat. please do us all a favor and stop

    I feel like this band thinks they are doing things musically and visually that no one has ever done. When in fact everything "unique" they have done has already been done by other bands like Motley Crue, Marilyn Manson, My Chemical Romance, Green Day and many others I cant think of. They make mediocre music for sad kids.

    Ok, I don't care if this gets thumbs down. These guys have made it in the world,they have made music, they have performed at downloads and other festivals. If you all have the balls to say why they are so shit, you go out there and do what they do. I kinda understand the hate to their personalities, but if you don't like their music, don't listen to it or even go on websites or news articles about them and slag them off.

    tbh why the hate? bring on the thumbs down, but I have seen them live TWICE and they were amazing... most of their vids are from pretty early on, so thats why, and i do admit he was ****ing shite early on, but nowadays he's really good, and yeah, they arent the most talented people i've ever seen, but they do play some pretty complex stuff, and LOOK AT THE FUCKING DRUM SOLOS CC PLAYS!! that, is a real drummer, in every sense of the word.
    joshua.2wright
    They are an awesome band. People see what they look like and think they're absolute shit. And yeah, they need to quit the outcast crap just a bit, but they write some awesome stuff that so many musicians today just can't achieve.

    I maintain that the criticism and claims of them not being metal caught up with them. While the musicians are talented, they are very poor in terms of songwriting.

    No one gives a sh*t, BVB suck more than a Dutch Prostitute on a friday night....i don't get why people like them?? they're just a rubbish mix of Motley Crue and Kiss.
