The new album is self-titled. What made you go this route for a title for your fourth studio album?
Andy Biersack: [Laughs] Well I was saying this earlier, we had like seven titles for the last record: it was Black Veil Brides’ Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones. So I feel like we exhausted all the title options and so maybe we didn’t have any titles left. [Laughs] Honestly it just felt right, every time I had about five titles I’d give to the band and we’d sit around and talk about it and none of those names felt as right as this self-titled.
It just felt like we were forcing the idea of an album title – we just wanted things to go more organically on this one and it just felt like the natural title for the record. It feels like a definitive piece to us, we feel very confident in the music and we also wanted to keep the tradition of Bob [Rock] who has done self-titled records with Metallica, Motley Crue, and The Cult. So we wanted to keep that tradition too, we liked it, there’s something nostalgic about it.
