Black Veil Brides Were Denied Entry To Canada

Now, this is a strange one. Black Veil Brides have been denied entry to Canada while they were on their tour with Asking Alexandria and Crown The Empire. On February 26th they couldn’t get across the border to play Vancouver.


This is their statement.

“This morning we arrived at the Canadian border in order to gain access to a country that we have not only played countless shows in but also recorded an album and spent a great deal of time in over the years. Instead, several members of our tour were denied entry, berated and treated with utter contempt by the agents on duty.

We have been touring internationally for a decade and have never experienced such a lack of civility at any border crossing or passport control in any country we have ever visited. We have a fantastic relationship with our Canadian fans and it’s with a very heavy heart that we must share that tonight’s show in Vancouver will be cancelled.

Asking Alexandria will continue on and still perform tonight as scheduled. We encourage everyone to still go to the show and have a great time. Refunds can be obtained at the point of purchase, thank you for your understanding and we promise to return again as soon as possible.”




Jake Pitts took to Instagram to explain it further.

“Of all the years touring, we have never witnessed such hostile and aggressive behavior from border patrol agents.

Don’t worry though, we are all fine and everyone in the band is ok. Nobody is in trouble, nobody did anything wrong, the border agents were just very unreasonable and for whatever reason wanted to make it hell for us. We are very bummed we cannot be there to perform for everyone who was expecting to see us tonight.

We love all our Canadian supporters and I hope we are able to come back soon to make it up for you! Our boys in @askingalexandria and @crowntheempire will still be performing, so feel free to go support them and have an awesome night, otherwise you can seek a refund at the point of purchase. We will see you again soon.”

Music Video’s 23/02/18

Did you think I’d forget? I didn’t this time! It’s time for another round of ten great recent music video’s. Let get going!

First up is a great band called Bully and their new video for the track, “Focused’.

Now let’s turn things up a little. This UK group are set to drop a new record ‘Time Will Die’ this year but until then we have the video for their latest single. This is Rolo Tomassi and their video for ‘Aftermath’.

Fall Out Boy’s new record ‘Mania’ has been out in the world for just under a month now but they aren’t shy on the singles. This is the fifth from the record and the video for ‘Wilson (Expensive Mistakes) sees them hosting and selling products on a shopping channel. A little weird I know, but lets see what happens.

After a great 2017 for this British metal group, they’re tipped for better things this year. With the release of ‘Immanentize Eschaton’, there’s no doubt it will be a great 2017. This is Venom Prison.“>


This next band are currently on tour supporting Dream State but the rising Londoner’s known as Chapter and Verse has debuted a video to accompany their track ‘Magazines’ which initially dropped in November.


Next up, Silverstein have released a fantastic video for their track ‘Whiplash’ which is off their ninth record, ‘Dead Reflection’ which also acts as a continuation for ‘Lost Positives’.


Now, the punk rockers Rise Against have added to their latest full-length record, ‘Wolves’, which was released last year. This is their video for a track off Wolves called House On Fire.


Now every week there’s always a group I’m always following, it’s time for that group. These come from the post-hardcore legends known as Senses Fail and this is their single from their upcoming record, ‘If There Is Light, It Will Find You’. Be sure to check this one out this week! Here’s the video.


Now for an unsigned group. This is from the stellar rockers from Manchester, Counterpoint. It’s from their upcoming EP, ‘If Not Now, When? and its the video for the track, ‘Leave It All Behind’.


Lastly, this video comes from the legendary rockers The Wonder Years which sees their first release of new music in three years since No Closer To Heaven in 2015. Now, their upcoming release, Sister Cities, comes out on April 6th. This is the video for the title track.
