Black Veil Brides Announce ‘Legion of the Black’ Film Global Pay-Per-View
The movie is called 'Legion of the Black' and it serves as an extension of the album. The flick is built around eight songs from the disc, with the band members appearing in performance segments. The group recently premiered it just prior to the holidays in Los Angeles and will let fans in other parts of the world check it out Sunday night (Jan. 6). 'Legion of the Black' will be available over a 24-hour period beginning at 12AM PT/3AM ET at the band's Facebook page, with fans having the option to share movie clips, answer trivia, take polls and potentially speak with members of the band.

The film and album concept come from the mind of singer Andy Biersack. The vocalist told Billboard, "I've always been a big fan of utopian, future, new world stories -- 'V for Vendetta,' comic books, graphic novels. It's not really an anti-religion story; more than anything it's based on the concept of the five of us in the band as these Che Guevara, rebellious leaders unified against this big church/government bad guy."
The vocalist says that after an initial false start on the album, producer John Feldmann asked him what was inspiring him and they took his short story idea and started working it into an album. "This is new ground for the band," says the singer. "It'll take a little bit of time for people to understand what this is, so the intent is to take it as many places as we can."
The 'Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones' album is due Jan. 8. Pre-orders are being taken here. Fans can also check out a trailer for the 'Legion of the Black' film and introduction from Biersack here.
