The moment Black Veil Brides' loyal army has been waiting for will arrive on Jan. 12, 2018, when the Los Angeles rock band drops their new full-length album, Vale, through Lava/Universal Republic. Vale is the follow-up to their 2014 self-titled fourth album which debuted at No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. The fourth album was also the winner of the Album of the Year at the 2015 Alternative Press Music Awards.
Vale, the rockers' fifth studio LP was produced by veteran John Feldmann (blink-182, Panic! At the Disco). Feldmann also worked with Black Veil Brides on their commercially successful third album, 2013s Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones (landed No. 7 on The Billboard 200 chart and yielded the signature mega-hit “In The End," which was proclaimed Song of the Year at the Revolver Golden God Awards). BVB is confident with Feldmann's knifepoint precision that this album will reflect, in a big way, the intermixture of where the band has been, along with their significant artistic development, concurrently retaining the vital 'Feldmann thing' that intrinsically makes everything huge!
“The opportunity to work with John Feldmann once again over the course of the past two years creating Vale was an incredible experience, and I am thrilled with the collection of songs we have put together as a band," frontman Andy Biersack said in a press release. "This record is the most complete and exciting album we have done to date. It will have been four years since the last album by the time it's out, so I think people are going to enjoy it. We cannot wait for the BVB army to hear Vale in its entirety!”
Vale, in Latin, translates to "be well, be strong," a central theme of the thought-provoking album. Black Veil Brides have, from their inception, sought to inspire, through their music, the outcasts and disenfranchised to courageously embrace their individuality and inner strength, enabling them to face the anguish of their past and look forward, with hope, to new chapters in their lives. Vale is currently available for digital pre-order. With each reservation, fans can instantly download the first two songs that have been released, "The Outsider," and "My Vow." Both songs are available now for streaming, give them a listen. Pre-Order Vale Here!
