Black Veil Brides announce new album, 'The Phantom Tomorrow'; listen to single "Scarlet Cross" now

Sumerian Records

Black Veil Brides have announced a new album called The Phantom Tomorrow.

The sixth studio effort from Andy Biersack and company is due out in 2021. It’s described as a concept album about “the antihero character ‘The Blackbird’ and a group of societal outcasts known as simply as ‘The Phantom Tomorrow.'”

Lead single “Scarlet Cross” is available now via digital outlets. It’s also accompanied by a video, which gives us our first preview of The Blackbird, who swoops in to save a member of The Phantom Tomorrow from unidentified villains. You can watch that streaming now on YouTube.

“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 characterst,” BVB says in a statement. “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,” the band adds. “[We] can’t wait for everyone to see what we have been working on!”

The Phantom Tomorrow is the follow-up to 2018’s Vale. It’s also the first original Black Veil album to be released since new bassist Lonny Eagleton joined the band in place of departed member Ashley Purdy.
