It's time to find beauty in the darkness and what better time to do it than this fall. That's when Black Veil Brides and Ville Valo will team up for a co-headlining tour that is set to travel through North America leading well into the month of October.

The two acts are known to have a penchant for darkly romantic yet heavy music, and this should be a bill in which the audience crossover makes for a great night. The trek is being backed by Hot Topic and will also feature the support act Dark Divine throughout the run.

“We cannot wait to join forces with Ville Valo and give both of our audiences in North America an unforgettable experience each night,” says Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack. “This run has been in the works for quite a while. We couldn't be happier now that we can finally share the news. Ville is an icon. We have all been fans of his not only for his work in the hugely influential band HIM but as a torchbearer for an entire generation of rock fans and musicians.”

“There's something tinnitus-inducingly romantic about the idea of being sandwiched nightly between Black Veil Brides and Dark Divine on this autumnal trek across North America,” adds Valo. “And imagining us explore the architecture of doom and gloom from three distinctly different musical perspectives has already made the bats in my belfry suitably ravenous.”

Biersack continues, “This tour is a dream come true and will be something special. Dark Divine is new to the scene but garnering a lot of attention quickly and rightfully so. They are hands down one of the best young bands out there, and we are certain the BVB Army and VV fans will love them.”

For Black Veil Brides, the band is continuing to promote 2021's The Phantom Tomorrow as well as their 2022 EP The Mourning. After years of fronting HIM, Valo triumphantly returned earlier this year with the Neon Noir solo album.

The tour gets underway Sept. 10 in Louisville, Kentucky, wrapping just over a month later on Oct. 20 in Riverside, California. See all of the dates, cities and venues listed below.
