Backstage at the Download festival 2011, Christian “CC” Coma of Los Angeles theatrical dark rockers BLACK VEIL BRIDES demonstrated a few stick trick ideas for U.K.’s Rhythm magazine that he uses on stage to inject some showmanship into his playing. Check out the footage below.
BLACK VEIL BRIDES‘ sophomore album, “Set The World On Fire”, is likely to sell between 20,000 and 25,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on June 14 via Lava Music/Universal Republic Records.
BLACK VEIL BRIDES‘ debut album, “We Stitch These Wounds”, sold nearly 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 36 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on July 20, 2010 via Standby Records.
“Everything is bigger — more songs, more vocals, more melodies,” proclaims vocalist Andy Biersack. “And it all came naturally; it’s not an attempt to try to outdo our first record, but we wanted to show how we had naturally grown as a band and as songwriters. This is my favorite record I’ve ever made — and most importantly, the best album anybody’s ever made.”
