Black Veil Brides to 'Set World on Fire' with Major Label Debut

Summer 2011 just got a little hotter as the Los Angeles’ newest rock sensations, the Black Veil Brides, continue their musical takeover with their major label debut, Set The World On Fire.  The band’s sophomore album is slated for release via Lava Music/Universal Republic Records on June 14 in the US.  Set The World On Fire is the follow-up to their chart-topping debut album released in 2010.  We Stitch These Wounds came in at #36 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Billboard Independent chart.


"Everything is bigger -- more songs, more vocals, more melodies. And it all came naturally; it's not an attempt to try to outdo our first record, but we wanted to show how we had naturally grown as a band and as songwriters.  This is my favorite record I've ever made -- and most importantly, the best album anybody's ever made" proclaims front man and founder Andy Biersack.

“Fallen Angels,” the first single from Set The World On Fire, is slated to arrive as an early present to fans on May 3rd via iTunes.  With its arena-sized intro to its anthem chorus, the song is a mantra for anyone who has ever felt outside the norm and sure to become the battle cry of the band’s devoted fan base, affectionately referred to as the BVBArmy.  The video, shot in Los Angeles last month, was directed by Nathan Cox (Marilyn Manson, Disturbed, DevilDriver, HIM).

The title track from the upcoming release will also be featured in Wes Craven’s Scream 4.  The song found its way into the film after the band’s loyal BVBArmy flooded the Scream message boards when a survey was posted asking which artists they would like to see on the soundtrack.  Before long, pages of posts mentioning the Black Veil Brides found their way in front of the music supervisor and director Wes Craven.  That led to “Set The World On Fire” being featured in what is sure to be one of the biggest horror films of the year.

The band is currently on the road headlining The AP Tour 2011.  They will also be performing at this year’s Bamboozle Music Festival in New Jersey and Rock on the Range in Ohio before heading out on Warped Tour at the end of June.
