Black Veil Brides have announced details of a brand new studio album.

VALE comes out on 12 January via Lava/Republic Records, and follows on from 2014’s IV.

Speaking of the record, frontman Andy Biersack said: “We cannot wait for the BVB army to hear Vale in its entirety! In my opinion this record is the most complete and exciting album we have done to date. The opportunity to work with John Feldmann once again over the course of the past 2 years creating Vale was an incredible experience and I am thrilled with the collection of songs we have put together as a band. The Latin translation of Vale is “be well, be strong!” and central to the message of this record. We hope to continue to inspire our fans and friends to embrace their own individuality and inner strength.

The vocalist, who focussed on alter ego Andy Black in recent years, added: “The central narrative once again finds The Wild Ones characters facing the challenge of moving on from the pain and anguish of their past and looking to a new chapter in their lives. This concept is one that is near to my heart and I believe will resonate with those that find themselves cast on the fringe of society. From our inception Black Veil Brides have stood up for the outcasts and disenfranchised, with this album as hope to give you hope, fun and most importantly a kick ass rock and roll record.”
