Black Veil Brides Heading Out On The Road
Opening For Avenged Sevenfold
Select Headline Dates Will Be The Last for 2011
(September 19, 2011 – New York, NY) – California’s greatest exports are teaming up for the hottest tour of the Fall. The Black Veil Brides have been tapped by Avenged Sevenfold for The Buried Alive Tour. The idea for touring together came after both bands were featured on a recent cover of Guitar World calling both bands “The Future of Hard Rock.”
“I love it when a plan comes together,” exclaims Biersack. “We are looking forward to going out on the road with all of these guys and playing in front of their fans as well as introducing them to the BVB Army.”
The 16 city run in four weeks kicks off on November 21 in New Orleans, LA and wraps up on the west coast in mid-Decmeber. The tour makes stops in markets such as Jacksonville, Madison and Minneapolis to name a few with more dates to be announced. The Brides will also be playing select headline dates leading in to the Avenged Sevenfold tour. Black Veil Brides are touring in support of their latest Lava/Universal Republic Records release, Set The World On Fire, which was released on June 14.
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. The latest release sold 23,000 copies and marks over a 100% increase in first week sales and a jump of 19 chart positions since the band’s debut album that was released only 11 months ago landing at #17 on the Top 200. As Revolver Magazine proclaims the album is “Full of breakneck tempos, crunchy guitars and shout-along melodies custom designed for an arena sized audience.” Set The World on Fire is available for purchase in stores and online.
Gaining international recognition, Black Veil Brides were recently voted the Best International Newcomer in the UK at Kerrang! Awards and also bagged the Best New Band award at the 2011 Revolver Golden Gods. Both of these prestigious awards were decided by fan voting and the band’s devoted BVB Army played an important role in the Black Veil Brides victory. The band has also landed on the covers of Alternative Press, Kerrang!, Music Connetion, Big Cheese and Rock Sound.
Black Veil Brides are Andy Biersack (vocals), Jake Pitts & Jinxx (guitar), Ashley Purdy (bass) and Christian “CC” Coma (drums).
