Black Veil Brides hail Pantera, Alkaline Trio

Black Veil Brides say their upcoming DVD is the perfect snapshot of where they’ve always wanted to be.

They issue their first-ever live set Alive And Burning on July 10 and reveal they were inspired by concert movies released by Pantera and Alkaline Trio.

Frontman Andy Biersack tells TeamRock Radio: “This is a great snapshot of where the band have always wanted to be, which is to be able to have this big spectacle show with the pyro and the video screens.

“I feel like this is the best we’ve ever been. We’re in a good place so why not record it and put it out there?”

Asked what live releases inspired them to make their own concert DVD, Biersack adds: “Alkaline Trio: Live On Halloween because they had a big glowing inverted cross and they dressed like dead priests. I thought it was the coolest thing when I was a kid, I watched it every day when I got home from school.”

Drummer Christian Coma says: “The Vulgar Video by Pantera. Hands down. That’s my personality. It showed a little bit of the live show and a lot of just being goofballs.”

BVB played the Encore Stage at Download today (July 13).
