Hollywood’s standout theatrical rockers, Black Veil Brides and Toronto’s most visually stunning and musically exciting band, The Birthday Massacre (review HERE), will team up to melt faces across the United States on a twenty city co-headlining tour this fall. They’ll be making stops in Atlanta, Houston, Anaheim and Seattle. Currently headlining shows throughout the US on their “Entertainment or Death” tour, the Black Veil Brides are riding high on the success of their chart topping debut album, We Stitch These Wounds, which came in at #36 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Billboard Independent at the time of album’s release. Currently headlining a UK tour as well as a coming off a successful East Coast sweep, The Birthday Massacre have been reaping heaps of critical praise for their recently released fourth album Pins and Needles on Metropolis Records which debuted at #5 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. Supporting acts on the tour will be Dommin and Aural Vampire.
Black Veil Brides was formed in 2006 when 15-year-old vocalist, Andy Six, began seeking players to create a vision of a modern day heavy metal band, combining the theatrics and passion of Misfits, Motley Crue, and Kiss, with lyrical content that pertains to the downtrodden outcasts of society. With a goal of bringing back the community and passion that was once so prevalent in rock and roll, he moved to LA in 2009 recruiting Ashley Purdy (bass), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (lead guitar), and Christian Coma (drums). With passionate hook-laden instrumentals and lyrics of hope and strength, Black Veil Brides quickly gained a dedicated following of fans averaging over 10,000 plays a day on the band’s MySpace and 13 million views of their first video for their single, “Knives and Pens”.
On the new album Pins And Needles which was mixed by David Ogilvie (producer of Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson, Killing Joke), The Birthday Massacre further refine their captivating hybrid of 80’s electronica and aggressive guitars, curiously fused with cinematically dark melodic progressions, explored on the band’s highly acclaimed previous albums. Revenant Media summed it up best: “The Birthday Massacre has crafted an astonishing release… [Pins and Needles is] an album that will be hard to top and one that many will try to imitate.” The epically arresting video for the first single “In the Dark” enjoyed a special theatrical premiere at Rue Morgue’s Festival of Fear in Toronto, ON last month. With over 330,000 fans as measured by nextbigsound.com, The Birthday Massacre continues to be discovered by new waves of believers.
