The time has finally come for Los Angeles’ biggest breakout act, Black Veil Brides, to unleash their major label debut, Set The World on Fire, on Lava Records/Universal Republic Records. The album is available in stores and online now and “it’s full of breakneck tempos, crunchy guitars and shout-along melodies custom designed for an arena sized audience” (Revolver). Set The World On Fire is the follow-up to their chart-topping debut album, We Stitch These Wounds. Released in 2010, the album came in at #36 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Billboard Independent chart.
Along the way on their journey for world domination, Black Veil Brides have been racking up recognition around the world for the rejuvenating sound they have brought to rock-n-roll. They were recently voted the Best International Newcomer in the UK at Kerrang! Awards and also snagged the Best New Band award at the 2011 Revolver Golden Gods. Both of these prestigious awards were decided by fan voting and the BVB Army played a huge role in the Black Veil Brides victory. The band has also landed on the covers of Alternative Press, Kerrang! (two!) and Rock Sound to name a few.
The band just released the video for Set The World On Fire’s first single, “Fallen Angels”. The song “powers along with tight, melodic punk/metal precision” (Billboard) and the video garnered over 1,000,000 views in the first two weeks of its release and can be seen here.
Black Veil Brides are Andy Biersack (vocals), Jake Pitts & Jinxx (guitar), Ashley Purdy (bass) and Christian “CC” Coma (drums).
