Alive And Burning 2 – a global streaming event – will air on December 11th and start at 7PM across four time zones (PST / EST / UK / AUS).

“We are so excited to share Alive and Burning 2 with the world! This show is a collection of some of our favorite songs spanning our entire career as well as the live debut of ‘Scarlet Cross.’ We feel confident that while the pandemic continues to prevent in person live concerts, this show will be a fun experience for any BVB fan. We set out to make a more cinematic streaming show and give the BVB Army something special. We can’t wait to unveil it on December 11th,” exclaims Andy Biersack.
After teasing fans for days on social media, Black Veil Brides released their new single and video for the track “Scarlet Cross” on Friday, November 13th. The video for “Scarlet Cross” was directed by longtime collaborator Patrick Fogarty and based on a concept written by frontman Andy Biersack. The video for “Scarlet Cross” – viewed over 1.8 million times to date – can be seen here: http://smarturl.it/scarletcross. “Scarlet Cross” is also available via all digital partners and comes from the band’s upcoming 2021 concept album The Phantom Tomorrow – the band’s sixth full-length album. The song was produced by Erik Ron (Godsmack, Dance Gavin Dance, Bush) and guitarist Jake Pitts.
Black Veil Brides are hard at work putting the finishing touches on the upcoming album The Phantom Tomorrow– scheduled for release via Sumerian Records in 2021. More information on the latest musical creation from Andy Biersack, Jake Pitts, Jinxx, Lonny Eagleton and Christian Coma will be available in the near future.

Like their band name suggests, Black Veil Brides evoke transcendent visions of an impenetrable hereafter, intermingling with a steely focus on the dark passions and elusive mysteries of the here and now. A romantic fantasy first summoned in a small town by founder Andy Biersack – a creative who was fascinated with death rock, theatricality, and monsters (both real and imagined). It wasn’t until moving to Los Angeles that the unstoppable force the band is currently was finalized. The band (and its members Andy Biersack, Jake Pitts, Jinxx, Lonny Eagleton, Christian Coma) Instagram and Twitter accounts command close to 10 million followers between them. Vale, the group’s most recent full-length album, went to No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart. In the hearts and minds of their fans, Black Veil Brides represents an unwillingness to compromise and a resistance to critics (personal and professional), fueled by the same fire as the group’s own heroes, the iconoclasts whose creative output, once dismissed, is now canonized.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sure sounds cool for those fans of the Black Veil Brides of the world since I am sure that they have missed being able to catch the band in real life during the course of the pandemic. Having been a fan for a few years myself I am among the number but I haven’t managed to catch any of the virtual concerts that have happened to date. I’m hoping to do the KISS and Trans-Siberian Orchestra one for sure but let’s see if the Christmas budget permits me to do so. Closing up I wonder what you readers think about this news. Will you be ordering this virtual show or will you hope to see it released on some kind of home video? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time around. Keep safe out there as we still have some time on this ride IMHO.
