(Freeman) This summer, after announcing an autumn co-headlining tour in North America together, gothic metal luminaries Black Veil Brides, alongside the voice of HIM, VV, released an evocative cover of the Sisters of Mercy classic "Temple of Love".
Today, with the kickoff to the tour coming this weekend, the "Temple of Love" cover has been given an updated remix from none other than producer MorgothBeatz (MGK, Juice WRLD). The remix also features additional vocals from singer Raven Gray.
Committed to uncompromising expression, with a foundation in hard rock tradition and rule-breaking iconoclasm, BLACK VEIL BRIDES is a transcendent celebration of life-affirming power and anthemic catharsis. A gothic vision first summoned in a small town by an isolated kid fascinated with death, rock, theatricality, and monsters (both real and imagined), BLACK VEIL BRIDES is now a postmodern heavy metal institution with a legion of like-minded fans and supporters worldwide.
A darkly romantic icon himself, VV (VILLE VALO), frontman for love metal pioneers HIM, casts a long and pervasive shadow that is still delightedly out of step with the status quo. VV's recently released debut solo album, 'Neon Noir' belongs to the same forlorn world of woe and whimsy once conceived and governed by VALO in HIM, but with the nuanced notes of a finely aged Cabernet.
