Black Veil Brides has officially begun pre-production for the follow-up to the band’s third album, last year’s Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones. The group announced via its Facebook and Twitter accounts that work has started with producer Bob Rock, whose resume includes albums by Metallica, Motley Crue, The Cult and many others.
Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack hinted to us not long ago that the new album may be another concept disc like Wretched And Divine:
“I think we’re gonna go in a bit of a darker, heavier direction on the next one. We’ve got some concepts. I don’t think we’re gonna do a sequel or a follow-up to this story, but we’ve kind of got a new story that we’re working on and I think we wanna follow that concept record route at least one more album.”
- Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones came out in January 2013 and featured the Top 15 rock radio single “In The End.”
- Black Veil Brides was originally formed in Cincinnati in 2006.
- The group issued two EPs on their own before moving to Los Angeles in 2009.
- The band’s debut album, We Stitch These Wounds, came out in summer 2010, followed by Set The World on Fire in 2011.
