Black Veil Brides Tour Behind ‘Wretched and Divine’

Black Veil Brides will kick off 2013 with a new tour and a new concept album, Wretched and Divine.

The band will hit the road January 4, 2013 with a show at the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas, and are scheduled to stay on North American highways through a March 9 show at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. The band will play cities all over the continent between those dates, including Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Chicago, Seattle and San Francisco.

During that time the band will also make the jump across the Atlantic for a short U.K. Tour that will last for the first half of February, and then they will come back and resume the North American tour just two days after their final show in London. If all that wasn’t enough, after taking less than a month break after that aforementioned March 9 show, the group will kick off a European tour on April 5 that will keep them busy through the end of that month.

All of this will be to support Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones, which will be released January 8, 2013. The record is the third studio album by the band, and features 19 songs telling the story of the titular Wild Ones.

“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,” Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack recently told Hollywood Music Magazine.

The first single from the album, “In The End” is offered as an instant download to anyone pre-ordering the album on iTunes. The record was originally set to be released at the end of October but was later pushed back into 2013.
