PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I should admit that over the last few days I was listening to a LOT of the BVB stuff because I found them entertaining from the first gig that we reviewed here on the website back in I guess 2011 or maybe even it was 2010. I loved the image of the early days all the way until their new sleeker look and was blown away by their skills on the stage and how they interacted with the ardent fan base. I think part of me was also keeping them in mind based on Biersack’s starring role in the upcoming film “American Satan”. I’ve already got a few posts up about that project which you can peruse by clicking on THIS LINK. I’m very excited about this upcoming tour because I will finally be able to see what Asking Alexandria is all about. Believe it or not, I’ve never caught them. There was always something else on my docket when they came around. What do you readers think about this new touring announcement? You can let me know down in the comments section below. See you next time and oh by the way, please stay tuned to the website or our social networks since I plan on tossing together some review thoughts on the two singles that were referenced in the press release. I didn’t have the time to do that today so like we said – tune in next time…….
