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”. Continue reading “Ballad Of The Lonely Hearts” (Single) by Black Veil Brides→

“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.” Continue reading Greta Van Fleet Announces Initial North American Tour Dates→

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.
