Black Veil Brides Unleash Video for ‘In The End’

YouTube Go big or go home seems to be less of a challenge and more of a promise when it comes to Black Veil Brides . With their new disc ‘ Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones ’ due out on Jan. 8, the band recently unveiled a new video for ‘In the End,’ the first single from the upcoming concept album. The song kicks off in epic fashion, hinting at the story that’s about to unfold, with frontman Andy Biersack wailing, “ In the end / As you fade into the night / Who will tell / The story of your life ,” as the band rips into the song with a desert scene serving as their backdrop. The up-tempo rocker wages a battle call and comes equipped with everything fans have come to expect from Black Veil Brides from theatrics to shredding guitar solos and a big sing-a-long chorus. Although it may take hearing the entire new disc for the full concept to unravel, it’s clear to see in the video that the storytelling is leading the way. In a recent interview with Hollywood Music Magazine , Biersack talked about the ideas being spun behind the scenes for their new disc, explaining, “It’s a ‘V for Vendetta’-esque story where this bad guy organization called F.E.A.R. takes away science and creativity from man and I suppose is a parallel to the religious and political upbringing of all of us in small towns in America.” In addition to the first single, BVB are gearing up for the debut of a full-length film based on the new disc titled ‘Legion of the Black,’ set to be screened in theaters in Los Angeles, Calif., on Dec. 21-23. For fans that can’t make it out to the west cost to partake, the band will also be offering it through pay-per-view on their Facebook page. Coinciding with the release of ‘Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones,’ Black Veil Brides will be kicking off their Church of the Wild Ones North American tour on Jan 4 with dates through March.

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte Says Homophobic Slur Is ‘Just a Word’

Mary Ouellette, SheWillShootYou.com Late last year, All That Remains singer Phil Labonte raised a few eyebrows when using the word “f–got” while talking about a song competition between his band and Black Veil Brides. At the time, he was referencing a photo split that featured himself and the glammed out singer of Black Veil Brides , Andy Biersack. The vocalist later clarified his comments and with some distance now between the remarks, he’s commented further on the outrage over his usage of the term. In a recent issue of Revolver (excerpted by ThePrp.com ), Labonte says, “I don’t worry what people think about me. I’ll call everyone in my band a f–got and some people who read that get really butt-hurt. I just don’t know why. What happened to ‘Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me’? I don’t advocate hurting someone’s feelings because of their sexual orientation, but at the same time, if it really offends you when someone says ‘f–got,’ you need to man up. It’s just a word.” At the time of the incident and pending backlash, Labonte criticized the metal media for latching onto one aspect and not telling the whole story, like his vocal support of gay rights. He adds in the new interview, “Passing laws against gay marriage is the most ridiculous thing that straight people do. That’s offensive to me, because they’re just people, and it certainly isn’t my right to go ahead and tell people how they can live or cannot live.” For all the hubbub over that incident last year, All That Remains have also done a lot of good. Just last month the band continued their support of the military by visiting a Marine Corps base around the Thanksgiving holiday. The group recently issued the video for ‘ Stand Up ‘ from their newly released ‘ A War You Cannot Win ‘ album.
