The Black Veil Brides. If you haven’t heard this name, you’re probably not as cool as you think you are. These guys have been on the cover of several magazines, most recently Guitar World (where they are featured as the “future of metal”). Their latest album, Set The World On Fire, has stormed the Billboard charts. Their first music video has over 26 million views on YouTube. They have over 1 million fans on Facebook and nearly 100,000 followers on Twitter.
Ahhh, now you’ve heard of them, huh?!
I had the opportunity to see BVB play a special fan appreciation show at Gramercy Theatre Monday night. In the midst of the Vans Warped Tour, BVB felt the need on one of their few nights off to throw a special party for their NYC fans…at just five bucks a pop.
Needless to say, it didn’t take much for this gig to sell out.
This was my first time seeing BVB, and I’ve got to say…Whoa.
These guys have a rabid fan base. From screaming girls throwing bras on stage to middle aged men going round and round in the pit, there is something about BVB that draws out the crazy loyal fan.
The show in NYC definitely brought out the hardcore fans…it wasn’t uncommon to see people emulate their favorite BVB artist by painting on scars and stitches all over their bodies. And once the show started, their wasn’t a body in the place that was standing still.
BVB received the 2011 Revolver Golden Gods Award for Best New Artist, and after seeing their set last night, there’s not a doubt in my mind that they deserve it. I had an interview scheduled with Andy (lead singer) after the set, but due to some time constraints we’ve had to postpone…
I will let you know when the interview is rescheduled…for now, let me know what you want me to ask Andy!
Oh, and if you haven’t picked up Set The World On Fire, I don’t know what you’re waiting for…get it now and make plans to see BVB live. #STWOF
