Black Veil Brides shared a common vision for their self-titled fourth full-length album [LAVA]. After 2013's sweeping and soaring concept epic, Wretched and Divine: Story of the Wild Ones and short film, Legion Of The Black, the band — Andy Biersack [lead vocals], Ashley Purdy [bass, backing vocals], Jake Pitts [lead guitar], Jinxx [rhythm guitar, violin], and Christian "CC" Coma [drums]— decided to scale everything back and return to the heart of their sound.
"Going into this record, we agreed to strip it all down," affirms Andy. "We wanted to go back to writing songs together at a rehearsal space. Every band starts that way. Over time, so many groups stop doing that because they spend so much time together on the road. We did just the opposite. Once we started, it felt right.It's a heavy, ballsy rock 'n' roll album."
In order to capture that spirit, the boys reached out to legendary producer Bob Rock [Metallica, Mötley Crüe] to take over behind the board. With sessions at his studio in Vancouver and Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles, they tapped into anunbridled and unrestrained energy. Bob proved essential to that process.
