Black Veil Brides have regrettably announced that they have been forced to the delay the release of their forthcoming sixth album, ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’.
Originally set to be released on June 4th 2021, the bands upcoming record release via Sumerian Record have now confirmed to be released on October 29th 2021.
Vocalist Andy Biersack shared the news in an announcement posted on their social media channels, which you can check out below.
“Hey there. Andy from Black Veil Brides here. I want to talk to you about our record, ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’. As you guys know, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the production industry on every level. The music industry has been hit hard in the sense that there is a huge delay in manufacturing of things like vinyl records and physical product and other integral pieces to releasing an album.
When we finished recording ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’, we were so excited about the album that we wanted to get it out as soon as possible, and so we set a June 4th release date. We realized pretty quickly that by having that June 4th release date, we would not be able to have vinyl records, other physical media, comic book series – all the things that we had planned for the release.
So we are going to delay the release of the record to October 29th 2021 at which point we will be able to have multiple vinyl variations, comic book series, different multimedia, and things that can properly lay out this whole release.
We know that it’s going to be disappointing for you guys who were looking forward to hearing the full album on June 4th, but I promise you that you will hear music around that date and much more coming in the future.
We have more music videos, more singles, as I said a comic book series and I can’t go into detail about it, but the return of Black Veil Brides live music is happening sooner than you think so there will be lots of announcements coming.
So again, October 29th 2021 – ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’. We can’t wait for you guys to hear the record and join us in this world that we have put together and hopefully, you enjoy it and it is worth the wait.”

The first trailer for Paradise City, the spin off TV series of the film American Satan has landed. The series features Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack and Asking Alexandria’s Ben Bruce showing off their acting chops – is based on “the lives of a rock star with ties to the occult and a young rookie kid who idolises him collide through their broken homes built by the music business”.
The series is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in March.
Creator, writer and director Ash Avildsen (who also founded Sumerian Records) reveals of Paradise City in a director’s note: “More than one in four American kids grow up without a father in their home.
“For kids that grow up with one parent, you can go on one of two paths: you can blame the world, your parents, blame God, blame lack of God, or it can light a fire under you that you’re gonna make it no matter what. Paradise City is the show made to inspire these millions of teenagers and young adults. It reminds us that there is no light without darkness, that sorrow and heartbreak can be the greatest drivers of art. It reminds us that there is always hope, that you are never alone and that music is always there if you let it be.
“Almost everything in Paradise City is inspired by real events I have experienced growing up in an unorthodox single mom household as a kid estranged from his famous father and then my adult life becoming self-made in the ruthless music industry. Supernatural elements that have guided and misguided my life ever since moving to Los Angeles are also prevalent throughout the tale.”
Joining Andy and Ben in the star-studded show are fellow rock and metal artists like Slipknot’s Sid Wilson, Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe and Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn, while other members of the cast include Cameron Boyce, Bella Thorne, Drea De Matteo, Mark Boone Jr, Fairuza Balk and BooBoo Stewart.
Last week Jinxx, the guitarist of Black Veil Brides revealed that he had contracted coronavirus and was isolating from his wife and new son Lennon. There has been some good news from his camp as he’s getting better and is advising fans to keep vigilant.
“Thank you all for the outpouring of well wishes I received while I’ve been hunkered down with COVID,” he says. “Little update on my condition, today is the first day I don’t feel like absolute death, although I still can’t smell or taste anything and my brain is still a little foggy. I’m not quite 100 per cent, but I have some energy back and I’m excited because the Department of Health says that I can come out of quarantine tomorrow for Thanksgiving.
“Even though I won’t be able to taste any of the food, I get to hold my wife and son again after a week and a half of not being able to and I’m extremely grateful for that.”
In addition took the opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of being careful over Thanksgiving and Christmas.
“I just wanted to say to everyone to continue to stay safe and please wear a mask! No matter how annoying it is,” he says. “And take this seriously. This is no hoax and cases are spiking everywhere, and no-one is immune. And just because you got a negative result doesn’t make you immune or mean you may not have just contracted it. So be cautious and maybe think twice about travel and gathering plans over the holidays.
“Though I appreciate the good wishes, I’m not sharing my story for sympathy as much as a warning, especially a day before people are most likely gathering with people outside of their household despite CDC guidelines advising not to,” Jinxx continues. “Having a newborn in our lives, we thought we had been super extra careful following all the protocols and yet @mommajinxx and I still got it. So be safe out there, stay home if you can, FaceTime and Zoom exist! Be courteous to your family and the rest of the world, let’s try to avoid any more people getting sick!”
We here at Almost Anything Media do wish Jinxx a speedy recovery!
There was some massive good news for Black Veil Brides fans last week in the release of their single ‘Scarlet Cross’ but now, behind the scenes one of their members has announced to be suffering with the nasty effects of coronavirus.
Taking to social media to warn followers about Covid-19, and encourage everyone to continue to stay safe, guitarist Jinxx wrote:
“Last Saturday, I woke up feeling extremely rundown, feverish and had a nasty cough. I didn’t hesitate to take my family down to get tested right away. We got our results back late Sunday night. @moggycatz and @mommajinxx came back negative, mine positive.
“Immediately we began quarantining in separate rooms. So far, Alice and Lennon are showing no symptoms, waiting on a second test results for my mom. Monday night the fever lifted, but I had lost my sense of taste and smell. The cough had moved into my lungs and last night noticed tightness in my chest, did some breathing exercises and it eased up. Today I’m just really tired and dizzy. Hoping the worst of it has passed.”
After detailing his experiences, Jinxx continues: “I just wanted to say to everyone to continue to stay safe and please wear a mask! No matter how annoying it is. And take this seriously. This is no hoax, and cases are spiking everywhere, and no-one is immune. And just because you got a negative result doesn’t make you immune or mean you may not have just contracted it, so be cautious and maybe think twice about travel and gathering plans over the holiday.”
The band are teasing a brand new concept record with their latest single, ‘Scarlet Cross’.
This cut is off their upcoming, ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’ record which is due sometime in 2021. The story is that of antihero ‘The Blackbird’ and a group of societal outcasts known as ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’.
They explain: “We are incredibly excited to share not only this new song ‘Scarlet Cross’, but also our vision for the world of ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’ and its characters. We are in the final stages of writing for this record and have begun work on our forthcoming The Phantom Tomorrow graphic novel. We intend to continue to share elements of the story in the coming months and can’t wait for everyone to see what we have been working on!”
Better yet, the video for ‘Scarlet Cross’ was directed by the longtime collaborator Patrick Fogarty which was based on a concept written by frontman Andy Biersack.
After the reveal of the book in 2017, Andy Biersack has announced the details of his debut release ”They Don’t Need To Understand: Stories of Hope, Fear, Family, Life, and Never Giving In’.
Set to be released on December 8th 2020, the book details Biersack’s life from his childhood to touring around the world with his band, Black Veil Brides and as a solo artist.
The synopsis can be read below.
“Before he was the charismatic singer of Black Veil Brides and an accomplished solo artist under the Andy Black moniker, he was Andrew Dennis Biersack, an imaginative and creative kid in Cincinnati, Ohio, struggling with anxiety, fear, loneliness, and the impossible task of fitting in. With his trademark charm, clever wit, and insightful analysis, Biersack tells the story of his childhood and adolescence. The discovery of the artistic passions that would shape his life, and his decision to move to Hollywood after his 18th birthday to make his dreams come true, even when it meant living in his car to make it all a reality. It’s the origin story of one of modern rock’s most exciting young superheroes, from building miniature concerts with KISS action figures in his bedroom to making the RIAA gold-certified single “In the End” and connecting with passionate fans worldwide.”
