Black Veil Brides have pushed back the release of their new album.
Due to manufacturing delays caused by the COVID-19 crisis, “The Phantom Tomorrow” will now arrive on October 29, not June 4 as originally announced.
In an online statement, leader Andy Biersack said:
“Hi. Andy from Black Veil Brides here. I want to tell you about our record The Phantom Tomorrow. As you know the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the production industry at all levels. The production industry music has been hit hard in the sense that there’s a huge backlog in making things like vinyl records and physical products and other integral pieces to release an album.When we finished recording The Phantom Tomorrow, we were so excited about the album that we wanted to release it as soon as possible and so we set a release date of June 4. We realized pretty quickly that by having that release date of June 4, we wouldn’t be able to have vinyl records, other physical media, comic book series – all the things we had planned for the release.
“So we’re going to delay the release of the record to October 29, 2021, when we can have multiple vinyl variants, comic book series, different multimedia, and things that can showcase this whole release well.
“We know it’s going to be disappointing for you who have been eagerly waiting to hear the full album on June 4th, but I promise you’ll hear music around that date and many more to come. We have more music videos, more singles, like I said a comic book series and I can’t go into detail on that, but the Black Veil Brides live music return is happening sooner than you know think, so there will be a lot of announcements to come.
“So once again, October 29, 2021 – The Phantom Tomorrow. We can’t wait for you to hear the record and join us in this world we’ve created and I hope you enjoy it and make it worth your while. ‘wait.”
