Black Veil Brides have revealed that their forthcoming third record Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones will be a concept album. Singer Andy Biersack recently explained the central theme of the new LP (expected out January 8, 2013) to BBC Newsbeat.
“The story follows this group of outcast leaders, rebels, through their journey to defeat this fear, which is an acronym for every and all religion,” Biersack told BBC Newsbeat.
“There’s this unified church government. Their sole goal is to remove all science and creativity and original thought from society, yet de-evolve things a little bit and make it darkness. The idea of fear and shadows play a large role and how people can escape from their own fears,” added Biersack.
As previously reported by Music Feeds, Black Veil Brides are also set to release a full-length film by the name of Legion of the Black, which according to NME, is due for cinematic release in the States next month, before hitting the UK in February 2013.
