Los Angeles rock ‘n’ roll torchbearers BLACK VEIL BRIDES return with their fifth full-length and biggest, boldest, and best album to date, VALE [LAVA/Republic Records]. Get it HERE.
Upon going live last night, the album immediately launched to the top of multiple iTunes charts. Currently, in the US alone it holds the #1 spot on iTunes Top Rock Albums Chart and as a result occupies a spot in the Top 5 of the Overall Top Albums Chart. Internationally, VALE also peaked at #1 on the Rock Album Chart in Australia and the UK, Top 5 on the overall UK iTunes Album Chart and debuted in the Top 10 on the Overall Album Chart in nearly 25 countries.
Stacked with rafter-reaching, arena-size hits, Vale has quickly shaped up as a fan favorite. The single “My Vow” has already cracked 1.1 million Spotify streams with “When They Call My Name” and “The Last One” not far behind. Loudwire fittingly described the new set as “anthemic.”
To celebrate the release, Black Veil Brides also shared the music video for the new single “Wake Up.” The song, which captured a spot on Spotify’s New Music Friday, comes with an even more cinematic worthy video that features Black Veil Brides as the leaders of a rebellion against evil fictitious world leaders. Check it out HERE!
“VALE furthers BVB’s agenda to create the most sweeping, grandiose gestures, while giving something to kickstart the headbanging of melodic metalheads all over the world” – Alt Press
“Couples with an industrial-sized bag of ‘Whoa Whoa’s, it’s actually impossible that Vale may broaden their appeal towards otherwise well-adjusted adult members of society.” – The Guardian
“Rock band Black Veil Brides sound ferocious and locked in.” – Hype Machine
“It’s a little early to say, but this might end up being one of my favorite albums of all time.” – Sputnik Music
“There are strings, spoken word sections and sweeping solos, so while the themes and melodies may sound familiar, the overall tapestry rarely wears thin.” – Rock Sound
“Despite throwing some creative curveballs into the mix, Vale feels very much like the rue follow-up to wretched and divine, and sees Black Veil Brides writing their own myth once more.” – Kerrang!
Audiences get the opportunity to experience these songs live as the group co-headlines North America with Asking Alexandria. It’s underway now!
