Following the release of the previous videos for ‘Scarlet Cross‘ (the band’s first-ever Top 10 radio single at Active Rock), ‘Fields Of Bone’ ( Andy Biersack directorial debut) and ‘Crimson Skies‘ (the animated continuation of the story established in the other 2 videos), Black Veil Brides are back with the 4th video in the saga. The video for ‘Torch’ is the final instalment in the initial Blackbird/9 story arc. ‘Torch’ also marks the second time frontman Andy Biersack got behind the camera to direct a video for the band alongside longtime visual collaborator Patrick Fogarty.
“We wanted to create something that felt like a fitting ending to the 4-video story arc that started with ‘Scarlet Cross’ and while this is the end of the original ‘Blackbird’ video chronology, it certainly is not the end of The Phantom Tomorrow narrative that plays out on the record and in our upcoming comic book series. It’s been one of the greatest joys of my professional life getting to dream up these concepts. For us as a band to work with such amazing individuals and to see this story realized on the screen is an absolute honor,” explains Andy Biersack.
Black Veil Brides released the full details of their upcoming 6th studio album ‘The Phantom Tomorrow.’ The album is comprised of a dozen tracks and has spawned the recent Top 10 Active Rock single ‘Scarlet Cross.’ The video has been viewed over 7.2 million times. The follow-up video for ‘Fields of Bone’ has been viewed over 3.1 million times. Backed by guitarists Jake Pitts and Jinxx, bassist Lonny Eagleton and drummer Christian Coma; the ‘Fields Of Bone’ video showcases the new look the band will be utilizing throughout the entire cycle for ‘The Phantom Tomorrow.’ Cover artwork created by Eliran Kantor – known for his work with Testament, Hatebreed, Havok and Andy Black. Produced by Erik Ron (Godsmack, Dance Gavin Dance, Bush) and co-produced by guitarist Jake Pitts.
