If I promised that my quick summary of “Wake Up” would be my final of the single reviews for the latest album by the Black Veil Brides” then you have caught me in a little white lie. My plan was to get you a longer viewpoint of “Vale” but I’ve been running around prepping for this, that and the other thing and since there was another song unveiled as a single today I figured why not. Let’s give a quick thought about the bands sixth offering from the new album “Ballad Of The Lonely Hearts”.

Greta Van Fleet Announces Initial North American Tour Dates

The Press Release:
Greta Van Fleet, who took the 2017 music scene by storm with its dynamic rock ‘n’ roll debut single “Highway Tune” claiming the #1 spot at Rock Radio for five consecutive weeks, amassing 10-million-plus Spotify plays and 6.8-million YouTube views in 2017 alone, selling out every single one of its headline dates in advance, and being named Loudwire’s “Best New Artist,” will kick off its 2018 tour schedule at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Friday, April 13. The band’s itinerary will include a slew of other major outdoor music festivals as well as headline dates that will see them playing to larger-capacity venues and multiple nights in some cities. Five of the dates – Houton, Dallas, Nashville and two nights in Detroit – went on sale last week and all sold out in under 15-minutes. Tickets for Greta Van Fleet’s headline dates for this leg go on sale to the public this Friday, January 26; log on to www.gretavanfleet.com

“We love making music and we love playing shows, but we never expected anything like the attention we’ve been getting,” said bassist Sam Kizska. “We are truly humbled by the response we’ve gotten, and are very excited to get back on the road and play for our fans.”

Prior to the tour, the Frankenmuth, MI-based Greta Van Fleet – 21-year old vocalist Josh Kiszka, brothers Jake (guitar, also 21) and Sam (bass, keys, 18), and longtime family friend Danny Wagner (drums, also 18) – are spending January and February recording its debut full-length album anticipated to be released late Spring/early Summer (Lava/Republic Records). The album will be recorded in Nashville and Detroit and produced by Al Sutton and Marlon Young, the duo that helmed the band’s critically-acclaimed, chart-topping/breakout EPs, Black Smoke Rising (4/21/17) and the follow up From The Fires double EP (11/10/17). For the album, the band has an archive of songs written over the past few years as well as brand new material penned late last year when they spent a week in the Tennessee woods. So, fans can look forward to the next evolution of, as Revolver magazine put it, Greta Van Fleet’s “high-octane, soul-and R&B-influenced riff rock.”

I guess I spoke too soon when I assumed that “The Last One” was going to be the final single from the recently released Black Veil Brides album “Vale”. The full album came out yesterday and since we haven’t gotten an official copy yet I decided to speak to this single as well. Sure I can listen to the whole thing on Spotify which is the common thing to do nowadays but with the BVB I like to see what they do with the overall packaging and in terms of photos. Here we go.

The guys in the Black Veil Brides have really been keeping their fans excited about the looming arrival of the album “Vale” as we arrive at the fourth and I imagine final single from the album. The song is called “The Last One” so one would assume this to be the final “taste” of the new work until it hits the shelves in your local brick and mortar shop and the online retailers. Having discussed the previous singles “The Outsider”, “My Vow” and “When They Call My Name” over the last few months I figured why not keep the process going and share what I thought about “The Last One”.

Coming at their fans as a slightly late Halloween present is what amounts to the third single from the upcoming Black Veil Brides album “Vale” with the song “When They Call My Name”. Back in September I discussed the second single “My Vow” and quite a few months ago was “The Outsider”, and I enjoyed them both. That’s left me curious as to the rest of the full work so I was interested in hearing just what was in store for the fans with “When The Call My Name”. The song begins with a slightly solemn intro and leads you to believe this a sort of ballad but it isn’t at all.
