This fall, Black Veil Brides and Falling In Reverse will embark on a massive U.S. Co-Headlining Tour. The trek kicks off on October 22 and wraps up on December 12. Support will be provided by very special guests Set It Off and Drama Club. During the tour, the bands are celebrating Halloween with two back-to-back shows, dubbed ‘Halloweekend’, on October 31 at the Marquee in Phoenix, AZ and November 1 at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA. Before that, BVB are hitting the road in the UK and Ireland from October 2-October 17. The tour will be in support of their brand new studio album that drops on October 28, 2014. The disc will be the follow-up to the band’s 2012′s Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones. The disc debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200. Falling In Reverse are still touring off their latest effort Fashionably Late which debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 last July via Epitaph Records. The video for their single “Bad Girls Club”, features a cool cameo by Andy Biersack of BVB.
Over the last two years, BVB have toured North America, Europe, Australia, South America, and many more countries on their Church of The Wilds Ones World Tour. The band headlined the Vans Warped Tour last summer, as well as the Monster Energy Drink Outbreak Tour with Bullet For My Valentine, Stars In Stereo, and Throw The Fight. In early 2014, Falling In Reverse embarked on their landmark Bury The Hatchet Tour with Escape Fate, Chelsea Grin, and Survive This!. The band was a featured headliner on this summer’s Warped Tour.
Black Veil Brides arrived on the scene in 2009 with their independent debut LP, We Stitch These Wounds, which debuted at #36 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart. In 2011, the band supported the Murderdolls on their God Save The Scream Tour in the UK. In April 2011, Black Veil Brides won the Revolver Golden God Award for Best New Artist, and the Kerrang! Magazine Award for Best Newcomers. In June 2011, the band released their sophomore effort, Set The World On Fire, on June 14. Ten days later, the band embarked on a string of dates on the Vans Warped Tour. Later that year, the band hit the road with Avenged Sevenfold and Asking Alexandria on the Buried Alive Tour. Throughout the year, Black Veil Brides played epic festivals like Download Festival, Bamboozle, and Rock am Ring.
To hold fans over until the next LP, BVB released the Rebels EP in December 2011, which featured a cover of Billy Idol’s classic, “Rebel Yell”. That same year, BVB guitar duo of Jake Pitts and Jinxx won the Revolver Golden God Award for Best Guitarists. In 2012, Black Veil Brides released their much-anticipated new album, Wretched and Divine: The Story of The Wild Ones. The album debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200, marking their biggest commercial success yet. The album was accompanied by a film, entitled Legion of The Black, which tells the story of the album’s concept; the tale of a group of rebels known as The Wild Ones. At the 2013 Revolver Golden God Awards, Black Veil Brides became the first band ever in Revolver Awards history to win a Golden God three years in a row, winning last year’s award for Song of The Year for the track ”In The End”.
Falling In Reverse exploded onto the scene in 2011 with the release of their debut smash hit, The Drug In Me Is You, via Epitaph Records. The disc hit #19 on the Billboard Top 200 and sold over 18,000 copies in it’s first week of sales. A huge success, the album produced four hit singles. That same year, the band played their first-ever live shows on the Vans Warped Tour. The band toured relentlessly for the next two years with the likes of Black Veil Brides, We Came As Romans, Eyes Set To Kill, and more. They also appeared at Rock On The Range in May 2012.
In June 2013, they released their sophomore effort, Fashionably Late. The album debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200. To support the record, the band embarked on the Vans Warped Tour once again in the summer of 2013. So far, the band has released two singles from the album – “Alone”, “Fashionably Late”, and, “Bad Girls Club”. Last fall, Falling In Reverse played a series of intimate acoustic shows as part of their An Evening with Falling In Reverse – Unplugged and Uncensored Tour. This summer, Falling In Reverse are set to play Warped Tour. – by Matt Bishop (Top Left Photo of Any Biersack Courtesy of Matt Christine Photography)
