“Wretched and Divine” has turned into more than just an album, too. BVB has also turned the story into a film, “Legion of the Black,” which features eight songs from the album, with the band in performance footage while actors depict the plot.
“We started with the intention of making it half dialogue, half music,” Biersack says, “but we found the music was so much more interesting than the dialogue that we wound up removing the dialogue from it and just let the (cast) interact. We’re really proud of the way it came out.”
BVB is in the midst of a lengthy campaign to give “Wretched and Divine” its due. The group is on its The Church of the Wild Ones World Tour, which heads to Europe and April and then to the Vans Warped Tour during the summer.
A “Legion of the Black” DVD will be released at some point this year, and Biersack is hoping to mount a full-scale “Wretched and Divine” concert in the future.
