Rock N Roll is fun, or at least that's the idea. That they are able to get back to that core concept is one of the great joys of Black Veil Brides, and one that fans latched onto as the Andy Biersack lead Hollywood quintet emerged as D.I.Y. phenomenon in 2009. Yes, the Brides Ð who along with Biersack includes Ash Purdy, Jinxx, Jake Pitts, and Christian Coma-- have a look that is a Goth take on the over-the-top glam of late '70's Kiss and mid '80's Sunset Strip, but their message is far from ironic. From their debut with 2010's We Stich Wounds to 2013's sprawling concept album The Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones, the band has always shown a deep emotionalism to go along the riff-heavy, fist pounding excitement.
And then there are those concerts: ticket buyers can expect nothing less than complete commitment from the Brides. Indeed, Biersack famously broke three ribs on stage and at another tour date, then smashed his nose falling off a drum riser at another. Of course neither injury even slowed him, much less stopped the show. It that kind of damn-it-all resolve that got Biersack named Revolver's Greatest Living Rock Star in 2012, and one of the many qualities that make the Black Veil Brides a band able to restore you faith in rock, in all it's fun, fury and fire.
