Posted by on May 5, 2021

 

03) Black Veil Brides delay new album to October

 

Black Veil Brides have announced the release date of their new album, The Phantom Tomorrow, has been pushed from June 4th to October 29th. 

 

Frontman Andy Biersack issued the following statement:

 

“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 29, 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.”

 

 

04) Lord of the Lost to release Judas in July

 

German metal outfit Lord of the Lost have announced their new album, Judas, will be released on July 2nd via Napalm Records. To celebrate the album announcement, the group has shared a video for the song “Priest.” 

 

The group comments on the track:

“With ‘Priest’, we dive deep into a visual world that is meant to convey the very core emotion of the upcoming album, JUDAS, to the viewer. This comes along with a story that leaves room for many means of interpretation while keeping the purpose of the album concept. The artist XELANAH shines as the protagonist here, symbolically representing the emotional tension of the figure of Judas Iscariot. That role will also appear and continue in further videos, just like you know it from, for example, AEROSMITH. The song itself manages to unite all the emotion and soundscape that makes up the album – a cinematic trailer for the ears. And even a deliberately placed GENESIS quote from the mouth of Judas himself is suddenly seen in a completely new light.”

 

On the new album:

“Don’t judge a book by its cover. This sentence could hardly apply any better to someone in theological history than to the figure of Judas Iscariot, who represents only one thing at first glance: Betrayal. If you take a closer look, almost endless possibilities of interpretation open up here: from “Judas the murderer” to “Judas the redeemer” and “Judas the actual martyr”, who, if you believe in it, could only find room in hell for his salvific betrayal after dying for what he did, in complete contrast to Jesus Christ. This field of tension and the apocryphal writings of the “Gospel of Judas” are the basis for a double album that not only illuminates the dark and light side of history, but above all the grey areas in between, in which we move emotionally and ideologically throughout our lives and try to find our place.”
