Time off? Don't be ridiculous...
When Black Veil Brides return to the UK next month for their headline tour the band will be waist deep in new material!
Seeking a quick follow-up to last year's 'Set The World On Fire', guitarist Jake Pitts says time is always precious for the quintet.
"I've been demoing while visiting my girlfriend and the guys have been doing stuff in LA," he said when speaking to Rock Sound recently. "We send things back and forth to work on each other's ideas. We're all constantly writing for this next record. Set The World On Fire only came out on June 14, it's amazing that we're already making plans for another one but it's important to stay relevant. As long as we're making great songs I have no problem with the pace at all."
"We are in the very beginnings of the process still but we're due in a studio sometime from April to June," he added. "We've obviously got festival appearances planned but most of our time will be spent on the new album."
Specifics are scarce at present but the guitarist did admit that he has ambitions to helm a Black Veil Brides record himself at some point.
"I would absolutely love to produce one of our records in future," he said. "I started getting involved with it on our last record and I would run the console when our producer or engineer was not available. To be honest, I think I'm up for challenge and ready any time."
