Black Veil Brides vocalist Andy Biersack has a message for the Black Veil Brides Army: thank you! Thanks to the band's fans, the song 'Set the World on Fire' will be featured in the upcoming film 'Scream 4.' The song is the title track from Black Veil Brides' new album, due out June 14th.
The powers-that-be behind the film posted a message on Facebook looking for music for the movie, and BVB fans answered the call en masse. A grassroots Facebook campaign effectively put the band on the radar of 'Scream 4' director Wes Craven.
"It was 100 percent fan-driven," Biersack recently told Noisecreep about his band's inclusion in one of the most successful horror film franchises in history. "We really appreciate it. It shows again that this group of outcasts that call themselves the 'BVBArmy' can be heard. We want to make sure they get the credit they deserve! If they are passionate about a band or about rock 'n' roll, kids can get together and do anything, if they truly believe in and set their minds to it. Our fans really want this band to succeed."
Biersack, an admitted fan of comic books and the horror genre, said that the process of getting the song approved was relatively easy. "Usually these things take forever," he said. "You have to deal with the music supervisor, sign agreements, etc. But this could not have been easier or quicker."
Black Veil Brides are currently on tour with D.R.U.G.S. and VersaEmerge.
