BLACK VEIL BRIDES have released the official music video for their song “Born Again” which can be seen below.
The video was directed by Vicente Cordero of Industrialism Films, while the song is taken from BLACK VEIL BRIDES’ latest album, “The Phantom Tomorrow”, which came out last October via Sumerian Records. The third concept LP from BLACK VEIL BRIDES and the band’s most-ambitious release to date is comprised of a dozen tracks, including the band’s first-ever U.S. Top 10 Active Rock single “Scarlet Cross”.
The cover artwork for “The Phantom Tomorrow” was created by Eliran Kantor, known for his work with TESTAMENT, HATEBREED, HAVOK and Andy Black, to name a few. “The Phantom Tomorrow” was produced by Erik Ron (GODSMACK, DANCE GAVIN DANCE, BUSH) and co-produced by guitarist Jake Pitts.
BLACK VEIL BRIDES frontman Andy Biersack told Rock Sound about “Born Again“: “‘Born Again’ was a song that was written later in the process. We felt like we needed to have a song that represented the joy and the idea of rebirth with these characters in ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’ finding what they thought might be their savior in Blackbird. Through the story you find that there have been sightings of this character, there’s this old legend of the idea of the Blackbird, this thing that’s passed from generation to generation, and now this is ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’ and the people in the underground saying, ‘This is our chance. We’re gonna be born again,’ singing in the streets. ‘This is our opportunity to get out of the shit that we’re dealing with with the Ninth Circle and all of the rules and the stipulations and the things that they have to go through. So this is meant to be kind of a joyous moment on the record before ultimately you discover this Blackbird character.”
BLACK VEIL BRIDES announced the addition of bassist Lonny Eagleton to the group back in November 2019, replacing Ashley Purdy.
