Black Veil Brides
"LA’s up-and-coming dark rock sensation, Black Veil Brides, has set a July 20th release date for their highly anticipated debut full-length album, 'We Stitch These Wounds', to be released on Standby Records. Black Veil Brides will hit the road in support of 'We Stitch These Wounds', headlining the Hot Topic Presents: The Sacred Ceremony Tour, along with Vampires Everywhere!, Modern Day Escape, and Get Scared. The six-week trek is set to kick off in San Diego on July 2nd.
Riding the success of “Knives and Pens”, and a brief headlining tour, the band promptly headed into the studio with their manager-turned-producer, Blasko, to begin recording 'We Stitch These Wounds', before hitting the road again as part of the Royal Family Tour, alongside From First to Last, Eyes Set to Kill, and Confide.
The band’s continued success earned them shelf-space in Hot Topic stores nation-wide, where their merchandise has ranked as high as number two in sales. With a thriving and dedicated following of fans (The Bridesmaids), and a highly trafficked MySpace profile (averaging over 10,000 plays a day, peaking in the 9th spot on MySpace’s Top Music Charts in the ‘Metal’ category), Black Veil Brides stand out as LA’s lone breath of fresh air."
Producer, writer, engineer, front-man, and rising icon of the majestic fusion of electronic darkwave, industrial goth, new wave punk, and glam rock William Control is a man of many personas and masks.
As lead vocalist for Seattle-based rockers Aiden, William has never been a shy character. The charismatic vocalist’s performance evokes such punk and glam legends as Iggy Pop, David Bowie, and Ian Curtis, while creating a new standard in onstage performance excellence. Over the last decade, Aiden has released 6 full length albums, 2 EPs, a Live Album, and toured throughout the world.
As a producer, WILLIAM CONTROL melds together a dark, industrial substratum with strains of new wave sensibility reminiscent of New Order, Bauhaus, Gary Numan, and Depeche Mode. Within his solo effort, William has released 3 full-length albums, “Hate Culture”, in 2008, followed by “Noir” in 2010, and “Silentium Amoris” in 2012, with a fourth album, “The Neuromancer”, scheduled to release 4/4/2014, as well as 2 EPs, “Novus Ordo Seclorum” in 2011 and “Skeleton Strings” in 2013, and a live album, “Live in London Town” in 2012. His darkly fanciful sounds have lent themselves to horror, with soundtrack contributions on Saw V, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009), and Underworld: Awakening (2012).
Finally, as an author, William has released the first of three novels, Revelator: Book 1, which brings to life the nihilistic story of William Control, as told through “Hate Culture”, “Noir”, “Novus Ordo Seclorum”, and “Silentium Amoris”, in 2013. Initially released for Pre-Order on 10/10, the First Edition sold out almost immediately, leaving fans clamoring for a Second Edition within hours, with full release 10/28. There’s no question that the story speaks to a generation of black-sheep followers seeking a deeper understanding of their emotional ambassador.
A man speaking from many perspectives, but all which coalesce in a collective sense of suppressed identity and desires, William Control uses the discordant voices in his head to consummate his varied and seemingly divergent conclusions into a celebratory affirmation of lives and passions living outside of mainstream acceptance. Whether with his voice, his musical styling, or words, he demands validation and recognition for a subculture all but denied existence, and in doing has built a cult-like following of devotees from around the world.
Motionless in White
Motionless In White aren’t just a band, they’re a way of life. Since 2005 this Scranton, Pennsylvania based metalcore act have cultivated a hardcore following via their Gothic-inspired aggression and imagery and that buzz is set to reach a fever’s pitch with the release of their third full-length Reincarnate. Fronted by malevolent mastermind Chris Motionless, Motionless In White are back with their strongest collection of songs yet, it seems as if there’s no stopping the act when it comes to what they can accomplish.
In fact in many ways this album marks a rebirth for a band who have spent nearly a decade in the trenches—and correspondingly songs like the massive-sounding title track are essentially a call to arms letting the world know that Motionless In White are back and stronger than ever. “I’m very proud of this band because we’ve spent years cultivating this sound and image and we’ve gone through hell and back to get to this point,” Chris explains. “I think the fans who just listened to us for specific surface reasons are gone and everyone who has stuck with us has formed a really special connection with all of us because they are the ones that relate to the music instead of following trends or what’s popular,” he adds.
