Only a few weeks removed from a headlining run on the Hot Topic Presents: The Sacred Ceremony tour, Hollywood’s standout theatrical rockers, Black Veil Brides, have announced a second consecutive headlining US tour, the “Entertainment or Death” tour, set to kick off this October in Southern California. William Control and Motionless in White will accompany Black Veil Brides on the month-long trek. Presale tickets are available now at: http://www.bvbarmy.com/.
To say summer 2010 was an enormous success for Hollywood’s latest rock sensation would be an understatement. While the country endured record setting temperatures during July and August, Black Veil Brides emerged as one of this summer’s hottest acts, releasing a chart topping debut record, and embarking on a wildly successful headlining tour. Their debut record, We Stitch These Wounds, sold nearly 11,000 copies in its first week, good enough for #36 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and #1 on the Billboard Independent chart. Now, Black Veil Brides will ride this summer’s wave of success into the fall on the “Entertainment or Death” tour.
We Stitch These Wounds hit stores on July 20th on Standby Records. The debut record can be purchased through the Standby webstore at: http://www.districtlines.com/Black-Veil-Brides, or on iTunes at: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/we-stitch-these-wounds/id380911797. In addition, a special deluxe edition of the album is exclusively for sale at Hot Topic stores nationally. The special packaging features a bonus track as well as an acoustic rendition of the YouTube hit “Knives and Pens”.
Two tracks from We Stitch These Wounds, “Perfect Weapon” and “Never Give In”, are currently streaming on the band’s Myspace page at: http://www.myspace.com/blackveilbrides. A music video for the song, “Perfect Weapon” can be seen on the band’s official YouTube channel at: http://www.youtube.com/blackveilbridestv. The video is also available for download on iTunes at: http://itunes.apple.com/us/video/perfect-weapon/id383746142?uo=4.
Delivering songs with lyrics of hope and strength, accompanied by passionate, hook-laden instrumentals, Black Veil Brides took the rock world by the throat with their first single/video, “Knives and Pens” in the summer of 2009. The video has since been viewed more than 13 million times on YouTube, and can be seen at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=gFDCHdKbKBY.
With a thriving and dedicated following of fans, and a highly trafficked MySpace profile (averaging over 10,000 plays a day, peaking in the 9th spot on MySpace’s Top Music Charts in the ‘Metal’ category), Black Veil Brides stand out as LA’s lone breath of fresh air.
