Have you ever heard of the band Black Veil Brides? Black Veil Brides is an American rock band that began in 2006 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The new album they released is called “Vale”, the Latin translation is “Be well, Be strong.”  From this title and the songs it contains, it displays an amazing amount of effort the band has put into the album as a whole. The album is by far the best  because it consists of amazing songs, beats, lyrics, and the music, that send chills down your spine. Even from one song you just can not resist hitting the replay button over and over. The lyrics can have an impact on you because they can provide a message that can be useful in your everyday life.

Biersack the lead singer, stated from an interview with Luke Morton, “We hope to continue to inspire our fans and friends to embrace their own individuality and strength.” Biersack wants his fans to see that yes it is okay to be different, but it is also an adventure to find your true self. The band’s most popular song from this album is currently “Wake up.” The views on Youtube for this song is currently 4,602,807 with 202K likes and 4K dislikes. On Spotify, “Wake up” is the second song on the list and the first song is “In the end.”

BVB has definitely dedicated this album to their fans. This year is the year the band will dominate like one of the songs states, “Who will be the one to save our destiny?”
