Background Information Edit

Lyrics and Message Edit

Black Veil Brides's lyrics have dealt with topics aimed at people who feel like outcasts in society. Their bass player, Ashley, said this in an interview about the message the band sends to its listeners:

"We carry a message of believing in yourself and letting no one else tell you otherwise. We stand up for the underdog and the disenfranchised. Anything strange, odd, or unique... we embrace that. So basically standing up for yourself, have fun, and live your life how you choose. You only have one life, make the most of it."

Band Name Edit

Andrew Biersack,Current and original frontman always went under the name black veil brides

Purdy also explains the meaning of the band name:

"Black Veil Brides is a Roman Catholic term used for when a woman marries into the church and gives up all the pleasures of life to devote her life to God. She is then deemed a Black Veil Bride. Sorta similar to a rock band where you have to give up many things in pursuit of what you're passionate about or believe in. It also has the dichotomy of the positive and negative. The happiest time in one's life, could be getting married. And the opposite of that in one's life would be at a funeral of a loved one. It all tends to fit really well for a dark and heavy rock band."[2]
