Bring back 2011!
The rumours of a Black Veil Brides breakup earlier this week feel so far in the past, especially with the news that the band is heading back in to the studio to re-record their 2010 debut album 'We Stitch These Wounds'.
In response to the allegations that the band would be breaking up after their eight-date run on Warped Tour, Andy Biersack spoke to Rock Sound stating "There is nothing but agreement from everyone involved that we are moving forward as a band and it is not the intention to break up, certainly not after these eight Warped Tour shows".
He also confirmed to us that the band recently signed a new record deal; now we know what that was for.
Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack has confirmed to LoudWire that the band are returning to the studio after Warped Tour to re-record the band's debut album 'We Stitch These Wounds', saying "The plan is to do an entire re-record of our first record. We [originally] recorded it for just a few thousand dollars in a studio that didn’t really have the capacity to do that big of an album. We always felt it wasn’t representative, sonically, of the rest of our catalog. We feel that a lot of the songs on that album are very strong, but have never been given their day in court, so to speak."
He continued "The intention is to not only re-record the record, but to include just about every demo we have from that era, songs that were never released before. We have an entire live DVD that was shot in 2010 in San Diego that was scrapped that we never released and no one has ever seen the footage from. We’re gonna put that out. We want to include as much of our old costumes and imagery and photos that no one has ever seen, as well as to record at least two or three new songs for the release as well."
Exciting times ahead! 'We Stitch These Wounds' was originally released in 2011, and launched with the huge 'Knives & Pens'. Which, because we have an excuse...
