Los Angeles’ own Black Veil Brides are currently putting the finishing touches on their upcoming fifth record. The album, which is yet to be titled, shows the band working with veteran producer John Feldman and hopes to ‘connect all the dots’. The band spoke to Alternative Press recently and had the following to say regarding the upcoming release.
“This is the greatest fuckin’ thing we’ve ever done! It’s our most melodic and our most heavy,’ and all that other shit you hear everybody say. The reality is that I’m better at what I do now than when I was 18. All of us [in the band] are. You’re looking at a group of people who understand this band more than anything else. Emotionally, I think this record will connect all the dots and bring the story full circle.”
After working with the legendary Bob Rock on the band’s self-titled album, the band return to John Feldman‘s California studio once more to record the latest effort. On the recording process, frontman Andy Biersack said the following.
I don’t think we’ll go too much further (than the eight or nine tracks they have); it’s been a process of shedding down to this point. Rather than record a hundred songs we didn’t like, we were really able to strip away the stuff that didn’t seem as strong. It feels like the story I want to tell will be done in the ten or eleven songs in this record. I can’t tell you how great it is seeing how much [guitarists] Jake [Pitts] and Jinxx have grown as players and songwriters. The future is so bright.”
The band’s upcoming album is due out early 2017.
