“Set The World On Fire”, the sophomore album from Los Angeles theatrical rockers BLACK VEIL BRIDES, sold 23,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 17 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on June 14 via Lava Music/Universal Republic Records.
BLACK VEIL BRIDES‘ first album, “We Stitch These Wounds”, opened with nearly 11,000 units to enter the chart at No. 36. 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.”
BLACK VEIL BRIDES was interviewed live on Download FM at this year’s edition of the Download festival, which was held June 10-12, 2011 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
Andy Biersack broke three ribs this past Saturday, June 18 after trying to jump onto a stage from a 15-foot balcony during the band’s concert at Hot Topic in Hollywood, California. Despite the injury, the singer returned to the stage and finished the gig.
