Staramba Presents: “Black Veil Brides” Band 3D Figurines

Logo - Staramba

A few weeks ago I posted an item about the 3D figurines of the band Doro by the Staramba company in Berlin, and if you missed that for some reason please click on THIS LINK since there was a whole press release about it as well as some thoughts from our editorial command HQ. Now alyou are caught up, it seems as though the company has also created 3D figurines for the Melodic Metalcore sensations The Black Veil Brides. If you don’t know the name for some reason, the Black Veil Brides are an American Rock band formed in California with a huge fanbase, BVB Army, all over the world. Current line up: Andy Biersack (lead vocals), Ashley Purdy (bass), Jake Pitts (lead guitar), Jinxx (rhythm guitar) and Christian “CC” Coma (drums). I didn’t have an actual press release about this batch and will instead let the photos do the talking and then return at the close with some editorial input.

“In The End” (Single) by Black Veil Brides

Artist: Black Veil Brides
Title: “In The End” (Single)
Label: Lava Records
Release Date: 10/31/2012
Genre: Hard Rock/Alt-Metal
Rating: 5/5

When I learned that the upcoming Black Veil Brides album would be a bit of a concept album I was very intrigued. I’ve been following them for a couple of years now and have been blown away by the rapid rise in popularity that they’ve showcased. This track, called “In The End” will be on the bands upcoming album entitled “Wretched and Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones” and while we got the single back on Halloween we still have a few months of a wait for the full album. Here are some quick thoughts about the tune since I had access to it.

Black Veil Brides @ Gramercy Theatre (4/15/2011)

The Black Veil Brides were back in town and this time around were taking part in the AP Tour of 2011.  The show would not only be bringing them to the public eye but also the bands D.R.U.G.S. (aka Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows) , Versa Emerge, Conditions and I See Stars.  The show would start super early and find me missing the first up bands but arriving in time to catch Destroy Rebuild and the headlining Brides.  To read the concert report from their sets and to enjoy the photos that were captured just scroll past the logo below. I even snagged some side images that you might enjoy.

Artist: Black Veil Brides
Venue: Gramercy Theatre (New York, NY)
Opener: D.R.U.G.S., Versa Emerge, Conditions, I See Stars
Date: 4/15/2011
Label: Lava Music

It was only about six months ago when I last caught the Black Veil Brides in concert, and I did have a good time so was not all that against catching them in action once again. That last go round was with Motionless In White and a part of the “Entertainment Or Death” tour but tonight would be an entirely different animal and present The Brides with four other bands who were all embarking on the AP Tour which was sponsored by the Alternative Press publication. The scene for the show would once again be at the Gramercy Theatre which seems to be the place that is picking up a lot of these mid-level shows. Having attended a number of gigs that were ill attended over the past year at this same space, I was happy to find out that this AP Tour was sold out for weeks in advance. The five bands performing for this tour were Black Veil Brides, D.R.U.G.S., Versa Emerge, Conditions, and I See Stars and the gig would start very early at about 5:30pm. My own schedule kept me from being there from the beginning so I would miss the first three groups and only catch from D.R.U.G.S. on. Here is how the part of the night that I caught went down.
